Hey! Yep! A punch list is just how @billd describe it! So I don’t mess up my working rhythm, I do most of the checks when I’m done the first draft, and then again when I have a finished copy.
I make a template for a list for big things I do. For example. When I prepared catalogs for clients, I found myself making many of the same mistakes every time I prepared a new one.
So my list would include:
List of Products
and stuff like that (been out of that for about ten years).
This way I could keep track of each section and what I had done to it, including having it proofed by someone else.
It sounds complicated, and at first it is, but once you make even a small list, then keep track of mistakes and add them to your list.
You quickly end up with a list of things to double check, and a way to verify the fact that you did.
Have someone else go through the work is a life saver.
I also make use text-to-speech, as @Michael does.REPORT ABUSE
