This word you keep using...

Am listening in on a webinar about "how to write webinar invitations to catch people's attention".

In his list of general tips, one of the presenters just said "and go through and get rid of passive verbs. Instead of 'thinking' say 'think'. Get rid of all those '-ing' verbs — make them active!"

I'm not even sure where I would start on the explanation of "things you clearly don't understand about verbs".

*sigh*
