I don't know if anyone else has this problem, but when I am writing and I think it looks and sounds ok, my grammar checker kicks in and tells me "passive voice consider revising" . So I sit scratching my head while I consider revising. I juggle the sentence around taking words out and putting em back in until it's just the same as it was. Is there ever a time when the passive voice is acceptable in writing? I so try not to use it, but sometimes it's very difficult. Grace.
