The final step of the editing process is proofreading, concentrating on surface mistakes such as spelling and punctuation errors and errors. Only after you have done all of the other editing revisions can you proofread them.
Content is essential. But, like it or not, the way a document looks impacts the way it is judged by others. You don’t want sloppy mistakes that detract the reader from what you have to say because you’ve worked hard to formulate and show your thoughts. The specifics that allow you to make a positive impression are worth paying attention to. Many individuals devote just a few minutes to proofreading, trying to spot some obvious mistakes that spring from the list. But, particularly after you’ve worked long and hard on a report, a simple and cursory reading typically misses a great deal. Acting with a definite strategy that allows you to consistently look for particular forms of errors is easier.
Sure, it takes a little more time for this, but in the end, it pays off. If you know that when the article is about done, you have an easy way to capture mistakes, you will think less about editing when you are preparing the first draughts. This makes the whole process of writing more effective. Try keeping the methods of editing and proofreading separate. You don’t want to be bothered to care over punctuation, grammar , and pronunciation while editing an early draught. If you are concerned about a word’s pronunciation or a comma’s location, you do not reflect on the more critical job of creating and linking thoughts.
