As it turns out, Crossover Day wasn't so bad. I got out at 8ish--well within normal session hours--and it sounds like the latest chamber (the Senate this year) got out at around 10:30. So far, this week has been pretty gentle. And since the legislature adjourns all of next week for Spring Break, I don't expect I'll have to work this weekend.
I continue to be amused when bills that I edited are deemed newsworthy. This time, it's SB 43--prohibiting (certain) employers from prohibiting (certain) employees from (lawfully) carrying firearms in their (locked) vehicles--and the AJC's Political Insider commentary. *Snerk* Me likie when evil politicians squabble amongst themselves.
dude_the is here. Yay! He went with fosteronfilm to the Atlanta Film Festival volunteer meeting last night, so I came home to a humanless house. Hobkin trundled out to see me, crawled up beside me on the couch, and we both promptly fell asleep until the boys came home.
Despite the relatively easy pace of this week, I'm exhausted.
The French 'zine Faeries hasn't paid me yet for "Of Two Minds in Lanais" that they reprinted last November. There's often delays in this biz between when I expect to be paid and when I actually am, so I didn't think much of it initially--especially since this is the third story of mine they've published, and the prior two times they paid me without any fuss. But I queried the editor about it two weeks ago and haven't heard a peep back. It's making me a bit anxious both in a "why haven't they replied?" way as well as an "are my emails going astray again?" way. Urk.
Really? Well, crap. And his story came out in the issue before the November one mine was in. At least it's looking less likely that my emails were lost into a great virtual abyss. But still, crap crap crap.
Thanks for letting me know, Stephanie.
No problem. It's a beautiful magazine, with gorgeous images and layout...but neither of us is planning to send any more stories there because of the payment issues. Let me know if you do manage to get any payment out of them!
Hey Stephanie, I got an email from the editor of Faeries this morning saying they were wiring my payment and I should receive it in a week or so. While "the check's in the mail" isn't the same as money in my bank account, this has me hopeful and is an improvement over non-response. Has Patrick still not heard anything from them?
