City Lounge: New York (Book Two, Chapter Five: Lonely Little Man)

Chapter Five: Lonely Little Man:

Lily had just finished up the latest installment of Sophia’s wonderful adventures aboard when there was a knock on the door. The old woman rolled her eyes.

“It never fails,” she muttered.

“Oh,” Naomi said. “Is it him again?”

“Yeah,” her neighbor said. “Who’s getting the door this time?” The three women grimance.

“I went last time,” Maggie said. Lily sighed.

“I’ll get it,” she said. Naomi and Maggie made uncomfortable face as the old lady stood up and opened the door. A black man in his seventies carrying a bottle of liquor in a brown paper bag. His teeth were crooked as he gritted. More

City Lounge: New York (Book Two, Chapter Four: Alone Down Time)

Chapter Four: Alone Down Time:

Izzie barely gets days like this anymore. In the beginning of her adult life, she lived alone. Some of her lovers spent the night with her, but they never live with her. Izzie enjoyed being alone. That all changed when Kris and Dianne entered the picture.

It started out subtle. Her current lovers would leave small items in the spare rooms. Occasionally, Izzie would notice. She call up Kris or Dianne let them know that they left a watch or a pen between.

“Oh,” they would say. “I’ll come by a pick it up later.” That later almost never really came. Then, more and more things of theirs stayed to never leave her apartment. Izzie took notice as she looked around. More

City Lounge: New York (Book Two, Chapter Three: Tough, Old Broad)

Chapter Three: Tough, Old Broad:

Her name is Lily Thatcher. And she doesn’t take shit from anybody. She’s seen New York in 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s. In her 70’s, Lily is proud that she stopped giving a shit over the little things long ago.

Maybe that ‘s why Naomi admires her so much.

Today, Lily sat on couch, smoking a cigarette. Maggie and Naomi sat across the room.

“So,” Naomi said. “How have you been?”

“Good, honey,” Lily said. She stuffed her thin cigarette between her thin lips. It was going to be another hot day around the city. Lily had the air conditioner blasting overhead. More

City Lounge: New York (Book Two, Chapter Two: Izzie + Kris II)

Chapter Two: Izzie + Kris II:

-Summer 2012-

It took one week for Izzie and Kris to get close. Izzie herself was picky in her treats ever since that whole Sabrina nightmare. She did everything to never run into another one like her. Izzie voiced her problems to her potential lover.

“So… you’re a lesbian?” he asked.

“Bisexual,” Izzie corrected.

“Oh, I see,” Kris said.  She raised her eyebrow.

“Is that a problem?”

“No, what you are is your business.”

Izzie began to smile. “Smart answer.” She stood on her tip-toes and kissed him on the lips. Kris gently kissed back.

“What was that for?” he asked. More

City Lounge: New York (Book Two, Chapter One: Three-Way Date)

City Lounge: New York: Book Two

Chapter One: Three-Way Date:

Izzie smiled in her mirror. When she put on her Vanilla Coke lip gloss, the author was ready to go. She grabbed her silver purse and walked out of the room. Kris and Dianne sat on the living room couch, waiting.

“Sorry to keep you waiting,” Izzie said. Both of her lovers stared at her in her long black and white diamond dress. They loved the dip at the top, showing off her cleavage and the way the dress itself hugged her curves.

“Is this a fancy club tonight?” Kris asked. Izzie smiled as she twirled around. More

City Lounge: London (Book Two, Chapter Fifteen: Train Vibe)

Chapter Fifteen: Train Vibe:

-Paul-

I couldn’t sleep that night. My mind went back to my song. I had the base secured, but I still had other elements missing from it. I turned onto my back in bed. There was only one way to fix this and be able to get to sleep. I jumped out of bed and got dressed. The only things I took with me were my iPod, cell phone, and keys. I left my front light on as I left  my flat.

When was the last time I did this? I shoved my hands into my pockets. My neighbour worried about me walking around so late at night. Even more so since the terror attacks in France. She keeps trying to give pepper spray when I walk out the door. (I keep telling her that I will be fine. But she never listens. I don’t know what to do with her.) More

Noizchild and Office 365 are Getting Divorced (Maybe)

Yeah, you read that right. Office 365 and I might be breaking up. I’ve tried everything to get it to work, but it just failed on me. If you have to fight with a writing program to keep it from crashing every time you save, it’s time to wait for the new model. (Word 2019 is coming out next year.)

For now, I am using OpenOffice. It’s just like Word without some of the fancy features. I am coping with it and I like it. If I can figure out how to get it to the save point of where I typed and how to show my word count at the bottom, it would be perfect. For now, I will wait and you can…

Noizchild VS. Office 365

I have had headaches with Office 365. It started back on Wednesday. I had finished a long chapter, but then Word froze up on me and claimed that it ran into an error and needed to close. (It did this a little bit earlier too.) When it closed down, I opened it up and the second half of the chapter was gone. I struggled to keep it open and finish. I ran several repairs on Thursday, yesterday, and today. I even restored to uninstalling and reinstalling it. No dice. I finally had to call custom service. He walked me through the process and got it fixed. Right now, it’s working. Let’s hope that it works tomorrow. *Fingers crossed*

For now…

Also, I dropped my second external hard drive and now it makes a clicking noise when I plug it in and the drive doesn’t read. I am using OneDrive and Google Drive until I have the money to get my external drive fixed. For now…
