Proofreading Course - Lesson 5: Proofreading on Paper

May be an image of flower

So, proofreading on paper...I have only downloaded a quarter of the next set of files and OMG it is a chonk! 14 pages of explanation and 17 pages of signs and symbols. Proofreader alchemy. I have already listened to one of several podcasts and YouTube links that are lined up. Thankfully, I have now sussed Adobe and MS Word Track feature so yay for that, but there is a lot of reading around and ahead for this one.

In a better frame of mind than I was yesterday, think I have sussed what was bugging me specifically and now that's been resolved. I can carry on. Somehow, I've got to make this proofreader thing work, no matter what. My last ditch attempt to be free of the post Brexit slave stranglehold. I don't typically like absolutes, but judgment is harsh on the newly qualified over forties in employment, unless you go freelance.
