How can I determine if I have left out a word when proofreading?

Read Backwards

Have you looked at your text over and over, but are still concerned as to whether there may be a typo or a word left out? Try reading what you've written - backwards (right to left). This forces you to say each word and see exactly what you have typed. Your brain will not "automatically" fill in words as it sometimes does when reading normally (left to right).
