I need a native English speaker text critique

Postby GoGoFelix1 » Thu Mar 09, 2017 2:12 pm

Hi, everybody ;) My little dream is to become a copywriter for a living. That's why I am doing my best to hone my writing chops. I picked some random topic and wrote an article. I've been editing it for the whole day, but now I would like to hear a ruthless critique of a native speaker. Unfortunately, I have no natives around me, so I am asking for help here. In return, as a native Russian speaker, I can help you with anything related to Russian language. I would be enormously grateful for any assistance in my small path to a dream.

Thank you a lot for interest! In my turn, I'll assist you in Russian if you'd like to. Unfortunately, I'm not able to post the text here and have no ability to PM you (I guess private messages are disabled for me). Can you give me some contacts or PM me, so I will reach you? By the way, if anyone reading this post requires some help or advice from native Russian speaker, I'll gladly help you.

GoGoFelix1, you should be able to use PMs now. I'll send you one as a test. Let me know if you do not receive it.

Hi GoGoFelix1

I got your PM but now it says I'm not allowed to reply because I only joined recently. When the moderators allow I'll reply. Meantime I'm happy to just copy and paste what you wrote, along with my comments, here if you don't mind it being public.
