Self-Eddyting—Try Spell Checking THIS

Eye shirley knead help with my man you script edits.
Eye deep end on books and webb sights.
Are criteek group is kind wen they mark up each lion,
Even wen eye think that eye am rights.

Edits means cheking much moore than just grammer.
It’s diesecting theme, voice, and plot.
Did eye show ore tell? Hows’ the view pointe and meddle?
Did my big inning hook ewe or knot?

Eye useually putt my righting a way
for a weak or perhaps too or three.
And wen eye go back, eye can sea with knew eyes,
the miss steaks that weren’t obvius too me.

Are my speach tags to many? Is the pacing 2 slow?
Is the protag o’nest sent her stage?
Is it boaring or wordie? Due my centences run on?
Is my storie geared four the wright age?

If my man you script stunk, then I need to read Strunk
and The Elements of Grammar wood help two.
Eye half much to learn so eye guess eye wont’ burn
The book that Eisle edit my weigh threw.
