[Didn't know where to put this thread, lol! So I put it here] What do you like active voice or passive voice? Do you write in passive or active? Personally, I don't like passive. It just sounds so yuck. And it really has no action towards it: The ball was kicked by John. Sounds boring and doesn't sound very fun. I only write in active and I have realized that. Do you think it's essential for a writer to write both?
