I have a sentence that I'm starting my novel with: "Her name, her real one, had long since been lost to the past." Now I was testing out prowritingaid and it says that "been lost" was a passive verb. Now thing is I'm not sure how else I can really write this. All other rewrites in my head seem to include the verb "been." Is it ok to use passive verbs occasionally depending on what you're conveying or should passive verbs be eliminated 100% from creative writing. Everything I seem to google seems to indicate to get rid of passive verbs.
