This checklist is just a basic checklist to help train your eye to edit. There won’t be very much in-depth items, as they deserve a checklist all of their own.
- I checked for correct spelling.
- I checked for correct punctuation.
- I checked for proper grammar.
- I checked for proper word usage.
- I checked for proper capitalization.
- I used ONLY complete sentences.
- I began new paragraphs in the proper places.
- I indented each paragraph.
- I used transition words to make my story, paper, etc, flow better.
I hope this aids you in your writing process. Please tell me if you think anything should be added to this list.
