Style Rules and Suggestions

Avoid repetitive prepositions near each other.


Sometimes students and amateur writers will use one preposition when another one is more apt.

Another issue is passive versus active writing, not necessarily passive versus active voice.

I love to listen to music.


I love listening to music.

By changing one prepositional phrase to a verb it gives us a sense of activity.
