Always check carefully for spelling and grammatical errors, even if this means delaying presenting the piece of writing in question.
- Copy the written passage and paste it into a different word processing programme to see if any problems show up
- Try viewing it on a handheld device
- View a newly written blog post from the main category/tag section instead of from the individual blog itself
Yesterday, I wrote a blurb style summary on my first novel. (That’s the novel I sent for an editing report.) After changing a few of the sentences and doing a spellcheck, I assumed I’d eradicated all typos. However, when I read the summary on my mobile phone later that day, I noticed a couple of mistakes.
“Barn” had become “bar” and “random, “randon”.
So I made the neccesary corrections first thing this morning.
