The Art and Science of Proofreading. Listen…

Purple cast after surgery...a fashion statement. Doing a lot of reading. Dragon software...almost through tutorial...again. It's like proofreading aloud. In the good old days, that's how we proofread Army pubs--two people reading to each other, taking turns, spelling out words, reciting punctuation. Or, if you really were looking for errors, reading it backwards, and spelling out foreign languages letter by letter. It was a grueling, time- consuming art and science, but it really worked.

  1. I hope this is the first and the last cast for youHow did you break your wrist?.You looked gorgeous with the purple cast.Did you choose the colour?I think that a pink cast would even look very nice on you.Take care and as I say to myself be careful not to break a bone again because it is very painful.
