Proofreading Trick

One way to proofread your manuscript is to read it aloud. It may sound strange, but it works. Reading aloud, especially to another person, makes us focus on each word individually. This is a good way to find and clean up those missing or extra of's, the's, and a's.

Just was reminded of this today in critique group. Very good idea, especially with dialog.

In fact, I was so impressed with their website that I added it to the bonus materials in my latest nonfiction, How to Find us on Facebook: An Essential Guide for Indie Authors."
