Proofreading With a Crisped Brain!

No photo description available.

I haven't written much on this subject, because I had to intensely swot up on the symbols and their meanings. I must admit to losing heart half way through, but I have been back on track this week and I have a couple of readings of it to do before uploading to Moodle. 3,600+ of words justifying my proofreading queries WITHOUT copy-editing. Ironic, as the lesson I have got after this is all about copy-editing (which I was told we shouldn't do, but I will presume there are sometimes that you have to). I won't be doing that for a while; after this assignment, part 2 of lesson 5 is far meatier than the simple few pages that I had to proofread. but in my defence, I had to proofread another proofreader's set of marks, verify that she had either correct/incorrect and then add the ones that she missed out.

What a fun life I lead - my eyeballs feel like I have rolled them in vinegar!
