My sister emailed some articles for me to peruse for any grammatical and syntax errors. As well as offer my opinion on the coherence of the write ups. I was also consulted by D to edit several paragraphs he wrote for a school project.
And to think that my sister is *the* editor of a trade publication while D is a history professor.
Surely I don't mind helping them but it can be mentally taxing for my rusty brain cells. But their heartfelt praises of gratitude is enough reward for my efforts.
Perhaps, next time I should charge them for my services. :D
