In working with my fantastic editor for Jewels of Hera she gave me another cool tip I'd like to share. I've always had trouble recognizing passive voice and this tip made it very easy for me. For passive voice, Laura recommends looking for the word was + a verb ending in "ing". If you find that you've got passive voice.
For tense issues check out the following:
It's all about when the action happend.
He will buy it. (future)
He bought it. (present)
He'd bought it. (past)
Hope these quick little tips help you as you work through your own edits.
Until next time...
