Hopefully you have been editing all the way through, but today we are going to make sure that your writing is as good as it can get ready for publishing your work.
To start with I would like you to read the whole diary through beginning with the first entry at Basecamp. Read it out loud as this is the best way to spot mistakes. (When you read in your head your clever brain often adds in words you are missing without you realising!)
As you read, make any changes that you notice in a different colour than you wrote in. You can write above the words or in the margin. Please don’t rub out and change your writing. I love to see that you have made changes – it shows excellent learning.
Next I would like you to check through your whole piece of work for these things:
When you have checked all this you are finished. Well done! Next week you will publish your work. I can’t wait to see the finished diaries!
