October 20th 2020. Top proofreading spots.

πŸ”Ž Top #proofreading spots from a manuscript I’ve been working on today.

❌ She thrusted the blade πŸ”ͺ ➑ thrust βœ”

❌ We were on route πŸš— ➑ en route βœ”

❌ The community were celebrating πŸŽ‰ ➑ was celebrating βœ”

So, we have an irregular past tense verb, a French borrowing and an agreement issue which have been caught before the manuscript is published. Glad to have spotted these to help create a frictionless reading experience. You don’t want to jolt readers out of their fantasy.

A few final things to look over tomorrow and then I’ll be ready to return the manuscript to the author. πŸ˜ŠπŸ“š
