My word doc always fills up with passive voice highlights, and I figured it's about time I stopped ignoring these frustrating little things, or big things, as I found out.
The first thing I learned is that the passive voice is not a grammatical error. Lesson one folks, it's not a grammatical error. It is, however, a style of writing where the reader may not always understand what you’re saying. This confusion is why it should be avoided if possible.
