Hicham It is. Wouldn't wish for anyone to remain alone with two young kids. Thankfully, I had enough strength and help from friends to gather myself together and go on. Not necessarily, my father-in-law kept his wife's phone working for several months after she passed so he could notify friends of hers that he had no other contact info for etc, and he had her passwords etc. Bored Panda works better on our iPhone app.

TheRubyFalcon 1 year ago Aww I'm sorry for your loss :. For example,. Fixing passive action based sentences is easy. Fixing the second type of sentence is trickier, because the subject does not do any acting, so the verb cannot actively participate in the sentence. Alice does not act, so this sentence cannot become active. She is acted upon. Here is the key question. What acted on Alice? Answer that question, and rewrite the sentence with the actor as the subject.
Suddenly, you have an active sentence. Obviously, rewriting sentences is often more complex. Sometimes the actor is not obvious. The author may have to ponder one sentence for several seconds or even minutes before the actor reveals itself, but then the rewrite falls into place. The most common time I justify the use of forms of be in a story is when there is a comparison. Absolutely no action happens in this sentence. However even here, an author may use creative license to turn a perfectly acceptable passive into an active sentence.
