Cold hard... paper?

My contributers copies of On Spec showed up in the mail today. So, I'm in the Spring 2004 issue if anyone's looking! So lovely to see my name printed on the nice glossy cover. *pets*

EDIT: There was a grammar peeve here, but it has been established (thanks to slammerkinbabe) that I was wrong and they were right. So hurray for conscientious editors who know what they're doing! And hopefully now I actually understand all the variations of the verb 'to lay'.

No word from agents. I've become desensitized to the mailbox and no longer get excited. Loki's Boy is coming along well; just finished chapter three. Yay me!

Wait. It's he lies/lay/has lain down, he lays/laid/has laid her down. Laid is right. I think.

Okay, so maybe they are right. I'd prefer that, actually (to their having edited it wrong). *head hurts*

...actually, their version is the correct one, sorry to say. When you lay down yourself, it's lay. When you lay someone or something else down, it's laid.

Lie/lay/laid is the most confusing verb ever. I was going to go off on a full grammarbitch rant, and I can on request, but I won't bore you unless you do request it. :)
