      Hi, I can do it if you can wait a couple of days (say wednesday would be fine?).
      Just a couple of things:

      1) A bid for 10 articles should be around SGD 150. If you find it excessive just forget my message.
      2) I do not have the skill "Articles" checked and I can't change it now. Please post a project with "creative writing" and invite me.
      3) I have the US-English exam, but no the UK-English exam, so please do not include it.

      Thanks for your attention.

      Hi, your article is alright. I prefer certain styles eg those which inject humour; contain facts and most importantly it has to be error free :) If you want to write another article, feel free to submit more :)
