Do you want to know how to cut out the passive voice in your writing? Check out this advice from Rebecca Johnson via Twitter: Add by zombies after every verb.
If the sentence makes sense, it’s passive. If it doesn’t make sense, it’s active.
Check it out here:
“She was eaten [by zombies.]” — passive voice
“Zombies ate [by zombies] her.” — active voice
Note: Most writing benefits from having an active voice.
