Active vs. Passive Voice (Again)

Active vs. passive voice. I’ve been criticized for slipping into passive voice so much, I don’t even trust myself to write an article about it. In my defense, I’ve written research results so long, it’s almost more natural for me to write in passive vice. However, I’m making this my writing resource subject of the month. In preparation for the Before You Hit Send Class, 10 great articles are listed here. Some even have exercises.

It can be hard to get rid of passive voice. I struggle with it myself.

Yes. I think the best way to get rid of it is practice! The more we write and critique one another, the better we get at recognizing it in our own writing and at least minimizing it. Higher education can destroy creativity :-D
