I’m offering free copy editing for your technical articles.
Anyone can become a better writer through practice, but you can speed up that process with a mentor.
That’s right. I want to help you with your writing. If you submit your writing to me, I’ll go through it and offer suggestions. I won’t just point out spelling and grammar mistakes. I’ll point out sentences that can be reworded or cut. And I’ll point out paragraphs that can be rearranged. Basically I’ll point out any improvement I see given your intended audience and your style. So for example, if you’re writing a rap song about SQL Server’s Cardinality Estimator, I may let some grammar mistakes (and your backbone) slide.
I don’t like to offer unsolicited advice, so consider this an invitation to solicit my advice. I welcome everyone’s writing, I likely have some advice to offer anyone brave enough to submit something for me to look at. (Unless your name is Kevin Kline. Kevin, you’re doing fine.)

Why Are You Doing This Michael?
Sentences which are awkward hurts my eyes and is making me feeling some uncomfortableness and I am wanting to stop it any way.
Actually, I remember proofreading some articles for John Sansom’s DBA Jumpstart project. There was some wincing, but I found the work very rewarding. I’ve continued to do this for others in an ad hoc manner. I’ve been helping a user group friend with proofreading and I find it easy and fun.
I’ve gotten a lot of help from others in the past few years. This is me paying it forward using my talents.
