So good! I'd never have thought about using a ruler or changing the font, but that makes sooooo much sense! Thanks Nola! Definitely gonna share this with my fellow writers!
Glad you found it helpful, Charis. Someone told me the tip about the ruler when I had to proofread my first published book chapter way back in 1989. I've used it ever since. Simple, but effective. I find the font/format tip is great if I've read something so many times I can't see anything new (like the competition entry I did last week). It's amazing what new things you can pick up when it looks different. Happy proofreading :)
Oh absolutely! Plus it gives me another thing I can try before I force all my housemates to sit and listen to me read my story to them ;) hahaha
LOL - They could always listen to the 'text to speech' version of you :)
