When I proofread my essay, I rather do it when there's not even a fly around. I like to hear my own thoughts so I can proofread my essay being focused. But I know that some people prefer to listen to music when proofreading a piece of work. They write better in coffee shops where there's a constant hum, for instance, but I can't imagine how I could proofread my paper with people walking around me. So how do you work better? Do you say to yourself "I'll go to the cafeteria around the corner to edit my essay" or are you more of a lonely wolf?
