IWSG: A – Z Challenge.
It’s time for another group posting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group! Time to release our fears to the world – or offer encouragement to those who are feeling neurotic. If you’d like to join us, click on the tab above and sign up. We post the first Wednesday of every month. We encourage everyone to visit at least a dozen new blogs and leave a comment. Your words might be the encouragement someone needs.
The awesome co-hosts for today are:
Megan Morgan, Chris Votey, Viola Fury, Christine Rains, Madeline Mora-Summonte, L.G. Keltner, Rachna Chhabria, and Patricia Lynne!
Please stop by and thank them for their time.
Today I’m over at the Insecure Writer’s Support Group with my choice for letter E. Hope you can stop by. And if you haven’t, don’t forget to sign up for our newsletter.
Whether English is your first or second tongue, it’s a tough language to master. If remembering when to use the verbs LIE and LAY is difficult for you, try memorizing these two nursery rhymes:
Now I lay me down to sleep,I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
(Use LAY if there’s an object; in this case, it’s my body. Substitute ME for anything and it’s LAY)
Matthew, Mark, Luke and John,
Bless the bed that I lie on.
(the verb LIE, (to recline) doesn’t require a direct object)
Happy A – Z Challenge, everyone!
