comment My story passes in choppy blocks - how can I fix it?
I went into my own user panel. I found the link to my answer, clicked on it, and copied it. I was able to do the same for a random answer of yours, so you can do the same for anyone else.

comment in years that vs. in years when
I'd say "during years when," but this is for English SE.

Hi, and welcome to Writers. Requests for single words are not on-topic for us, but they are at English SE. I have flagged the mods to migrate your question.

comment Narrating something that happened between chapters as a flashback in a present-tense novel
Works for me. Just make sure you have some kind of time-stamp or other indicator so we know when we are.

comment Writing a Romance novel, starts in present but after two chapters the flashback starts
Aren't The Notebook, Atonement, and Titanic all structured this way? (I haven't read or seen any of them.)

comment Should I completely eliminate passive voice
@what The sentence has a subject, absolutely. I was saying that the sentence does not describe who or what is acting. And I liked your answer about where the focus of the sentence is; that's a great way to decide which voice to use.

@what In that sentence, you're making a prediction: This event is likely to happen. Also, since electrocution is not something as common as, say, being the person who makes the coffee, I infer that electrocution has already been introduced and given context (e.g., X would have to get hit by lightning or mess around with a power generator). So either X itself is the actor (X plays with a generator) or the weather is the actor (lightning strikes X). Previous context would have supplied the actor, so I think it's okay to skip for that sentence.
