Amy on writing

Writing…with zombies

Avoid the passive voice with this unique and super fun tip I found from a most unexpected place: Archives.gov

I use it every time I taste the unpalatable flavor of inactive language in my own writing.

  1. I’d not thought of zombies being passive before, but then I pictured myself on a sunday afternoon sofa after a lunchtime plate of roast lard and five quarts of cabernet savignon. You Americans get all the fun: our British national archives are dry, crusty and more dead than undead. Good article, fab pic and much appreciated post.
