Crossing out mistakes on genkō yōshi

Just for fun, I've started trying to keep a diary in a notebook with genkō yōshi style paper. I've managed to find instructions on how to format the punctuation etc. for vertical writing--actually very interesting to learn!--but one tiny detail is bothering me. What is the "proper" way to cross out or strike out mistakes in this style of writing? When I make mistakes in English I was taught to cross them out (this way); so what is the equivalent way to cross out my many, many mistakes while writing Japanese?
