More to proofreading than just a sharp eye…

So, as mentioned, I joined the society for editors and proofreaders in order to do a better job at proofreading things for clients.  As such I signed up for the first course a little while ago, and have been gradually working my way through it, honing my skills as it were.  All of which will no doubt come in handy when I have my own novel to edit.  Until then, I work for you.

Little did I realise, that there was a lot more to proofreading than just care and attention.  There are a whole mess of symbols used by professionals to mark documents, BSI standard.

It was actually quite therapeutic.  However, the practice text is also guilt tripping me into going for a walk.

I guess there are worse things it could be persuading me to do…
