Quick Link and Request for Feedback

While Copyblogger writes specifically about, well, crafting copy, he recently posted five writing steps that apply to just about any project. Dean Rieck calls it POWER copywriting, and the acronym may help you to remember a step or two along the way to completing your languishing pieces.

If you have an opinion about the passive voice, what it is, and if or when to use it, please chime in on the on-going discussion. I try to keep an open mind, so I’d love more feedback. Does the term “passive voice” only fit one specific sentence structure? Should I find a better descriptor?

I believe that “voice” gives this particular topic much more range than one specific structure. Perhaps “inactive” or “limp” better describes the “voice” against which I have long been railing here. Please, share your opinions and let me know where you stand.
