Revising and Proofreading

Guidelines for Proofreading
For most people, learning grammar is the first step in learning to write. Rules of grammar are the foundation for clear sentences, and clear sentences lead directly to good writing.
Guidelines for Revising
Revision can be thought of as the process of reviewing your rough draft and making changes that bring it to a final draft.
Dealing with Organizational Problems
In your writing you must make your ideas not only clear for yourself, but also for your readers. Being organized is a matter of balancing your ideas and how you convey them to your readers.
Using Transitions
Transition words or phrases are needed in writing to guide the reader through your discussion or argument.
