good links and info. I am still looking for a good passive voice checker. I seem to naturally write in passive voice. How to break this habit?? Any suggestions.

Articlechecker.com is a good free plagiarism checker. As regards, free grammar checkers, my experience is that you are better of just investing in a commercial package. The free one's are really weak and substandard.

If you need a resource to check for duplicate content between something you have already written, and you are writing now, a great program is DupeFree Pro, which is free as the name states.

Plug both articles into the program, and then there is a button at the bottom to compare the two, and it tells you how similiar they are. It also highlights what is duplicated to make it easier for you to correct.

This site is a Godsend, Clairejoy!

My main computer is on a timeout and I've been having to work on my mini using either Open Office or Google Docs since I don't have Word installed on it. I don't trust the spell check on either of these, so I came here for help. This is EXACTLY what I was looking for. Thanks!

Common Errors in English Usage -- know it and love it

Common Errors in English Usage

Because most writing errors can't be caught by grammar and spell checkers. This is a seriously awesome resource. Some of them are obvious, but it has definitely saved me an article rejection or two from more exacting editors.

Default to unformat

I'm just diving into freelance writing.
I prefer writing in Word, but Suite 101 says the formatting that gets pasted in messes up the article. Anything I can run the article through to remove all formatting?
