LPT: When writing reports, essays or any other important documents, reread it the next day with fresh eyes. Don’t just save it and think it’s good to go, even if you’ve proofread it. Trust me, it’s got errors.

I always do my proofreads on the computer and when I think it’s good to go, I print a copy to proofread. Something about seeing it printed vs on the screen helps me catch the rest of the errors.

As the saying goes, write drunk and edit sober Of course, the best way to find errors is to send the document to the intended recipient. You’ll surely find an error later on. Such is life lol
