The Benefits of Reading Aloud During the Editing Process

Reading aloud when proofreading and editing is excellent practice because far fewer errors escape our notice.

I teach my students to do it. I recommend other authors and bloggers do it. And even though I have been teaching English for 30 years, I know I am not infallible, so I still do it, too.

  1. I think this is a great idea. If I had read the first book for which I gathered stories of their lives as physically challenged artists would have been totally reworked by me before it got published. Now a number of them have passed on, and I have lost the interest in the book. It has never sold many copies, and I think the title too was responsible. Who would buy a book, Artful Alchemy: Physically Challenged Fiber Artists Creating?

    We live and learn.
