That terrible passive voice
Has anyone got any idea how to get rid of the passive voice in on'es writing. we know that words ending in 'ly' spell danger of passive voice, but what do you do to keep your mind from spurning out passive voice sentences?

Many of us strugle with the many things to remember as we write or proofread our work, but is there someone out there that has an easy system that does not take a degree in English Literature to comprehend and apply?

some thoughts on this would be nice.
