Question: “I admit to being a nit-picker when it comes to grammar, punctuation
and spelling. I also know from personal experience that it’s not easy
to accurately proofread my own work products because my mind reads what
I intended to write rather than what I actually wrote. I’m a little
concerned that, from what I read in the responses to this Forum, either
we’re not proofing our work prior to hitting the “send” button, or as a
community we don’t have a very good handle on our grammar, punctuation
and spelling. We are usually the ones responsible for proofing the
work of others, so I’d like to know – are we just not worrying about
traditional standards these days? If you do try and maintain high
standards, what tricks do you use to proof your own work before it goes
out? (I read the work product out loud, which forces me to see what is
really written.)” — Kathy
