Proof It One Last Time

Yesterday’s tip contained a sentence fragment from an early draft of the tip that never was deleted.  It is easy to overlook typographical errors, errors in fact, spelling and grammar errors, etc.

Always take one last look to proofread something, preferably some time after you originally wrote it.

My personal ranking for errors (starting with the ones that I think are the worst):

  1. factual errors
  2. spelling errors
  3. typographical errors
  4. grammar errors

Actually two and three are pretty close. And while all errors I make frustrate me, errors in fact bother me more than grammar errors.
