You’ve made it to the final step, proofreading, before sending your precious manuscript out into the world.
You’ve spent ours writing and revising, have sent it off to be examined by an extra pair of eyes (the editing service), and now you are ready to have it proofread.
Why can’t I do it myself,” you ask.
Well, you can, but you’ve read through it so many times it may be hard to spot he last bits of details needing a fix. I will come at it fresh and will probably read it for the first time. Those last bits will stand out for me and I will help you fix it.
By looking for the right/wrong details causing two types of problems:
- Glitches resulting from changes to the manuscript during layout: in headers/footers, pagination, incorrect hyphenation, missed words, repeated words, and more.
What I Look For
- Incorrect grammar and punctuation that was missed i the edits
- Incorrect apostrophes
- Acronyms: is it written out in full at first mention? Does it match what’s in the text?
What Type of Materials Do I Proofread?
- Book manuscripts (fiction and nonfiction)
- Instruction manuals
- Senior project reports
