TIP OF THE WEEK FROM OUR EDITORS

A perk of writing for an entertainment website is that your tone can be fun and conversational. But what is conversational? Well, it's the exact opposite of long, convoluted and academic. And a good way to achieve that is to use an active rather than passive voice!

Our editors couldn't be more emphatic about this! The good thing is we all learned the difference between active and passive voice in school, but for those of you who need a reminder, here goes...

An active voice performs an action. A passive voice has the action done to them. While not wrong, passive voices aren’t always the best way to phrase your thoughts and ideas. When writing, an active voice is usually preferred and is also easier for readers to understand. Here are examples:

  • Active voice: Sexy wildlings roam in the North.
  • Passive voice: The North is roamed by sexy wildling.
  • Active voice: The Avengers destroyed New York.
  • Passive voice: New York was destroyed by the Avengers.

There it is! Now you know what to do and may the odds be ever in your favor!
