🔎 Top #proofreading spots from an edit I’m working on.
1️⃣ I looked causally at… ❌ ➡ I looked casually at … ✔
2️⃣ My friend Jaime ❌ My friend Jamie ✔ (The name had been Jamie throughout so this was just a typo/letter switch)
3️⃣ I used to be less social ❌ I used to be less sociable ✔
In addition to this:
◻ Missing closing speech marks have been spotted and added.
◻ Dialogue tags and action beats have been checked and fixed where needed. Some action beats had been tagged on to speech with a comma. That’s sorted now.
◻ I’ve made sure spellings are right for the variety of English.
All in a day’s work.
