List of Mistakes found in Rough Drafts

  • paginate
  • margins
  • space between paragraphs
  • internal citations--also known as parenthetical citation. IT'S NOT JUST FOR QUOTES!!!!!
  • "p." is not needed for page numbers
  • YOU--never, ever, write in the second person (unless you are writing a letter).
  • italics are only to be use for titles
  • paragraphs: should never be longer than 3/4s of a page
  • periods and quotation marks: either behind (89). or inside "blah blah."
  • big font is the oldest trick in the book. Seriously?
  • Times New Roman or Arial, size 12. Period.
