I'm writing a series of stories about Agile Software Development (called the ScrumMaster Tales). The stories are written about the problems a team face learning to do Scrum (aka Agile) as they build their application.

Unfortunately while I understand Scrum and Agile my writing skills need improvement. Specifically I tend to miss keywords and over use the passive voice.

In the past I had someone proofread and just point errors but the problem is that I don't necessarily see how to rewrite the problem bits well. In addition it was difficult to migrate changes from MS Word back to wordpress accurately. I'm open to any process that reduces errors.

The ideal editor would help me rewrite the posts and also find an elegant to migrate the changes back to the site.
