Question 2: There are at the least 4 things to look for while proofreading. *Typos, which can be misspelled words, or incorrect punctuations. *Eliminate irrelevant information, you don’t need to write every single detail. Chose the details that help build up the main idea. *Mix up the sentence lengths. Never have a bunch of short sentences or long sentences one after the other. Try to keep them the same. Some maybe shorter than others but try not to let too many get too long. *Last but not least, remove any clichés! Replace them with your own expressive style rather than old, boring words. A good example is, “last but not least”.

Question 4: One type of prewriting is freewriting. When freewriting you write any and every idea that comes to mind. Don’t worry about spelling or punctuations. Just keep jotting down whatever pops into your mind. A second type of prewriting is researching. When you research your idea you get useful information about your idea from all sorts of different sources.
