The Zombie Test & Passive Voice (ReBlog)

Corey Truax

Funny-Zombie-20.jpgLate last night I was doing my daily commenting rounds when I stumbled across a delightful post that met all my reblogging prerequisites.  A writing tip that uses zombies as a teaching point?  Yes, please.

This tip comes from the Mercenary Proofreader Thomas Weaver who mans the helm over at North of Andover.  If you enjoy solid writing tips and frequent examples to sharpen your knowledge, I would encourage you to follow his page.  If not for the knowledge, do it for the tongue-in-cheek commentary and fresh perspective.

As for the Zombie Test, check it out here.

My favorite writing tips include the following: don’t take me hours to write, offer a logical takeaway, come from respectable sources, demystify grammar, and involve brain eating corpses.  I think you will find today’s reblog hits all those criteria.

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
