How can I proofread without missing errors?

When I’m proofreading…

πŸ‘‡ πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡ πŸ‘‡  πŸ‘‡    πŸ‘‡

I read like a small child.

πŸ—£οΈ I read the words aloud.

🐒I read them slowly.

πŸ‘†I follow along with my finger.

I find this particularly helpful when reading sentences with a lot of two/three letter words in them.

Our eyes can gloss over these all too easily.


🌊The tide is on its way in.


🏝️All I want to do is get back to the island.

It’s my strategy for making sure that there are no missing words.

And it works. βœ”οΈ

πŸ”ŽTry it next time you want to double check that something you’ve written is right.
