Batman Explained, Proofing, Eyes vs Ears (ears win), ABCookie Monster

11 Apr

Batman Explained. Ignore everything I’ve ever said about Batman, read this, and you will be enlightened.

Today? Proofing. I’ve asked my Kindle to read along with me and it’s happy to oblige–I used to use a TTS program to read along with me, but it’s much nicer to have the Kindle do it. More convenient, too. If I spot a mistake I highlight it, then just flick through later and make the necessary changes. I’m 30% through and I’ve already found three errors, two of which I wouldn’t have noticed if it wasn’t for the audio. You can’t trust your eyes when you’re proofing. You need a second opinion; your ears will provide it.

Need a smile? Of course you do. Watch this and be happy:
