Hi Oleks,

Yes - editing is such an important, final stage of writing.

What I would recommend (and I have done this myself numerous times) is for writers to get someone else to review/edit their work if they can. (Obviously if this is not possible, then the writers themselves will have to correct the mistakes and typos, improve the style etc themselves.) Do you agree?

Fantastic effort with regards to your written and spoken English! Other than Faye and Aliakbar's minor corrections, I do not have any other suggestions :-)

Hi Ed! Thank you! Yes, I agree with you. Maybe it makes sense for several authors to unite and check each other's texts. And it makes sense to check your own text anyway.
