Although this works very well I do have some spare time where I would like to earn a little extra cash! I have done proof-reading for magazine articles, and for private individuals including some professional authors in the past. It seems that any word which is spelt incorrectly literally jumps off the page at me! Similarly, I can just as easily spot grammatical mistakes and in particular the current \'trend\' regarding the misuse of the apostrophe! I would be very thorough in my proof-reading and quick to return any work that is issued to me correctly.
