comment What are the drawbacks of writing too much in the active voice?
@FumbleFingers I see your problem. I think that as a question about grammar as a writing tool it's fine on either site, but I can see your point too.

comment What are the drawbacks of writing too much in the active voice?
I'm unclear on what your concern is. What caused you to wonder this? Is there an example of your writing you can provide to illustrate the issue? @FumbleFingers I think this question is fine here.

comment Non-linear style used by *Arrow*
@TheThom The Wikipedia article has a pretty good listing of stories that use the technique. Also, the TVTropes article Anachronic Order has a good list in it.

comment What is a ballad?
Welcome to Writers! As you seem to have figured out, questions that ask for feedback are closed here; that's because because they're unlikely to help anyone else. While you're careful not to do that (thanks for that), I think this question is at risk of being closed because, as it was written, it's unlikely to help other users. Asking what a ballad is, and using your example as a starting point, is more useful to more people, so I've edited this a bit. I hope the edits work for you and still get you the information you need.

Would you consider quoting the relevant text of your link? (For more information, see Are answers that just contain links elsewhere really “good answers”?)

Questions about existing literary works are off-topic unless they relate to writing projects. Closing.

comment Magic or No Magic?
Done, please feel free to further change my edit if I've missed the mark. For future reference, please note that placing a question on hold merely disallows answers until it's reopened. It has nothing to do with not wanting to help people.
