I have done some proofreading in the past and unless you have a proofreader or editor on hand to check your writing you are on your own. Here are some techniques that experts from online homework help service have used that have helped me. • Make use of the spell checker. It may not pick up ALL errors but it will pick up most of them; • Utilise an online grammar and spell checker such as Grammarly; • Have a friend or colleague check your writing. It helps to have someone read your work to see if it flows well or if you have missed something in your haste to finish; • Print out the article and read it. Having it on paper can help to find the errors; • Have a break from your writing and clear your head. It may be just a short break or you may need a day or so. Then come back and check your work; • Read your work out loud to yourself. This can be a great help when you say the words and they don’t make sense; • It can also help to change the font, colour or background of the work you are proofreading. Any or all of these change the way you see the work and changes your perspective. Possible / Impossible As much as we would like to publish perfect work, we are not going to be able to do this all of the time. All we can do is aim for perfection, try the techniques I gave and find which one or more work for you. After all it is not the end of the world. I personally use Grammarly to check my work for grammar, spelling and unique content. This tool has been a great asset to me with my writing. Is Writer’s Block Permanent? Low Levels of Persistency, Consistency and Contingency Any self-improved expert will tell you that the secrets to prosperity are persistency as well as consistency – adhering to your plan and working it regularly. I believe there is a third important component: contingency. Things happen! Do not let distractions throw you fully off track; handle them and return to work. Fear of Exposing Yourself The Catch-22 of the aspiring writer: you wish to discuss your creativity and writing skills with the world, but what exactly will they think? If you cannot put aside your fear of readers judging you as well as self-expression, you will not have the creative liberty you need for prosperous writing. Write what you know, be yourself and let the chips fall where they may. Limiting Beliefs Chances are your thoughts for a day are limiting beliefs adding to negative self-judgment such as,” It’s hard to…,” “I will never… “I can’t…..” etc. We decide about ourselves and also the world around us at a very young age, usually around 2, when we know our personality. Start tracing and weeding out those limiting beliefs and change them with positive affirmations and new beneficial ideas. However, writer’s block will not last forever so it may be a great time to restock your creativity nicely by, reading stories from the experts, studying more books, or getting yourself outdoors for some time to absorb some sunlight. Have you ever had writer’s block so bad that you thought it was permanent?
