Edit your own work - read your paper out loud

Ok, so you don't have to be a rock star and grab a microphone. However, reading your paper out loud will help you edit more effectively.

You will feel a little self-conscious at first! The first time I tried this, my dog was laying nearby and he was snoring by the second paragraph! However stick with it. Reading the paper out loud will help you "hear" mistakes that you won't catch when you read the paper silently.

Keep at it!
