Today’s Writing Tip

Use active voice as much as possible. If you don’t know what that means, “The boy threw the ball” is active voice.  “The ball was thrown by the boy” is passive voice. Who is performing the action versus what or who is receiving the action?

Not that active voice also eliminates a preposition. The sentence is more clear and there are less unnecessary words. Tighter writing is better writing.
