So, I've been using my sister as my second pair of eyes for editing. Now, she had a lecturer in college that insisted that the passive voice is evil beyond evil and it kind of got stuck deep into her brain. Every time she notices it in my work, there's a little note left beside it. Now, I always thought it was a good tool that, if used in moderation, could help the writing sound more natural. Thoughts? Was her lecturer just a psycho that had a grudge against the passive, or is there some merit to like.. NEVER... using it. ????
