Chapter 5 is the best writing workshop I have had. It goes through everything. I can’t believe that I didn’t know most of the things Knight talks about. I re-read several sections just to make sure I could use this information.
As for chapter 6, I love active voice and been using it for years. I come from a film background. I write several scripts a month. In the film industry, If a potential investor reads passive voice in your script, they close it and throw it away. It’s serious. I also love the way active voice gets places faster. It tells you what you want, now.
