Tips to Improve Your Proofreading - Part 1 ~ Xlibris Reviews | Xlibris Writing Tips | Scoop.it
Xlibris Reviews's insight:

By understanding the nature and reason for frequent errors and finding the most misspelled and repeated words, a writer will learn to take extra care not to use them so often. Authors should pace themselves by evaluating each sentence alone, consciously going through the spelling, grammar and structure.

Xlibris Reviews's insight:

Promote yourself. People are curious about authors. If you’re writing a nonfiction book, your audience wants to know what establishes you as an authority on the subject. For works of fiction or poetry, your reader want to know where you’ve been previously published or a little about your background. The author bio is your chance. In a very brief paragraph, list your accomplishments, other books (if you’ve published before), schooling (if appropriate), and any information about your professional life you believe is important (awards, grants, organizations you belong to). Also be sure to mention places where your writing has appeared (newspapers, literary magazines, online journals).

Top Tips to Improve Your Proofreading – Part Two ~ Xlibris Reviews

Top Tips to Improve Your Proofreading – Part Two ~ Xlibris Reviews | Xlibris Writing Tips | Scoop.it
Xlibris Reviews's insight:

Proofread a printed copy of your work. There are several reasons for this. Most writers find that they are simply more successful at finding errors when they take a break from their monitors and use paper instead. Perhaps there’s just something about changing the format that allows you to read with a fresh eye. There’s another reason, though. When you proofread, you should only proofread; this is not the time for stylistic changes or reworking dialogue. If you’re proofreading on your computer, it’s too easy to slip back into “creative mode,” which will make you a less effective proofreader.
