I am not sure if I have used the correct word in my sentence. I have used "blot out", but I am not sure if that word is correct in my sentence. What word could you use to describe when you cross the text out so many times that it becomes illegible? Would you please correct my mistakes.


Jim wrote a few sentences in his diary and, dissatisfied with what he had written, he blotted them out with his biro until they were illegible.

I think you might need to have a fountain pen to blot something out.
