Proofreading and Copy Editing Course

I am currently working on Assignment 4. I need to know, which textual mark do I use to delete the line breaks between the sub heading and the start of the first paragraph? Thank you in advance.

I struggled with this one and Ive used the transpose sign. Not sure if it's correct but in light of what it says in the course the sign suggests a new paragraph which I suppose that's what you are doing. No doubt you know the answer by now,anyway.

I am also on Assignment 4 and am unsure of the clarity of the corrections I am making. I am proofreading/editing in Word using the 'edit' and 'track changes' options. The changes are shown in red in the text, also noted, along with any deletions, to the right of the document with a red line indicator. Is this sufficent/acceptable?

Annemarie Munro Writers Bureau's Student of the Year 2022

"I have seen my writing journey as an adventure: What can I write? What am I best at? What new aspects of writing can I discover and contribute towards? I have welcomed the wide range of modules covering different types of writing, challenging me to try new aspects in style and content, pushing me gently outside my comfort zone with encouragement.

"I signed up for the course in December 2020 as a Christmas present to myself and I started the first module in January 2021. I have had eight pieces published: three paid earning £1080 and a star letter where I won a £250 hotel voucher."
