City Lounge: Berlin (Book Three, Chapter Eight: Lace and Speeding)

Chapter Eight: Lace and Speeding:

We didn’t leave the Watergate until about close to two in the morning. I leaned on Sebastian, smiling.

“Take me home with you,” I said. He smiled as he patted me on the head.

“Are you sure about that?” he asked.

“Yes!” I shouted. I broke into laughter like a drunk person. Funny thing was I didn’t have that much alcohol to drink. I leaned up and tried to kiss him. Sebastian gently pushed me back.

“Alright,” he said in a low voice. “I’ll take you home with me.”

“Yay!” I shouted with my hands in the air. I couldn’t stop laughing as I twirled about in his arms. Sebastian stopped and turned my to face him. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Three, Chapter Seven: Queen of the Club)

Chapter Seven: Queen of the Club

“How many times have you done this?” I asked Sebastian as we walked through the entrance.

“I think about four times now,” he said.

“Four times?!” I asked.

“Daniel is a good guy,” my love said. “He helped me through college.” I raised my eyebrow.

“How?” I asked.

“It’s a long story,” Sebastian brushed off as he led me further into the club. I could hear the music pounding from the hallway. When we got inside, it looked like an actual concert was taking place. So many people danced around us. A mix of rock and trip-hop blasted through the air. I’ve never been a fan of trip-hop to begin with. I like calmer things like soft rock and a little classical. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Three, Chapter Six: High-Class Party)

Chapter Six: High-Class Party:

Sometimes, I like things with high-class. Sebastian doesn’t fail to deliver either. He leaned down to my ear as I wished that I could disappear into the sand after that game.

“I’ll make it up to you tomorrow night,” he whispered. I glanced up at him, wide-eyed.

“What?” I mouthed.

“Em!” I heard Stephanie shout. “Your turn!”

“Huh? Oh,” I said. I sat up and looked around. I finally settled on Meg. I turned in Sebastian’s arms.

“How many men have you slept with?” I asked. I don’t know why I asked that. It just slipped out. Maybe it was the alcohol. Meg broke into a huge smile like a drunk clown. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Three, Chapter Five: Beach Games)

Chapter Five: Beach Games:

Stephanie finished her beer.

“Let’s play a game,” she said. We all looked at her.

“What kind of game?” Garth asked. My friend smirked.

“A game of truths,” she said.

“Oooo!” her troupe said. I looked around at all of the people around the grill. What were they, twelve?

“How do we play?” I asked. My friend winked.

“It’s really easy,” she said. “Someone asks a question to another person and they have to answer it. If they lie, the rest of the group has to take a drink.” I raised my eyebrow. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Three, Chapter Four: Night on the Beach)

Chapter Four: Night on the Beach:

I used to go to the beach when I was a kid. My parents had friends out near the coast of California. We would go up and visit them during the summer. I would play in the water and splash around. Dad and I would always run from the waves when the tide came in. Those beach trips stopped when my parents and I moved further east to take care of grandpa. Then, school came along and ate up my life. Come to think of it, the fun stopped when I moved east. This might be my chance to get it back in Berlin. More

Celty is Still in the Shop

I called the shop today and they said that my battery to my second laptop isn’t in yet. They said that the battery will be coming in in a few days. Meanwhile, I’m getting Pinky’s battery to charge properly. I decided to try and run it without the battery. It might the charge chord that is the problem. I won’t worry about it now though because of Pinky’s age. (Getting an older laptop fixed does not seem to be worth the lack of money on me at the moment.) The down side is that I can’t really play Sims on Pinky. The game will start up and play for a few minutes, but then will close down without warning. I don’t know what is causing it. I’m not sure if it’s a mod I updated or if I didn’t copy all of the files from OneDrive. I won’t be certain until I get Celty back and update the mods on that file. God, I really wish I had laptop #2 back. But, I know it will be worth it. I won’t have to worry about the charging stopping and starting on me repeatedly, or Celty going to sleep on me because the battery got too low, or Celty shutting down on me because the battery got too low. Can’t have that. I have work to do.

Speaking work, on Thursday we will going back to Berlin for the City Lounge. I kind of forgot where I was, but I will jump right back into it. I guess I will just keep on writing and waiting. While I do that, you can…

Celty Went to the Shop

I finally sucked it up. Today, I took Celty (Laptop #2) into the shop. Turns out, it’s not the charging port. But, I need a new battery. They are ordering for me. I don’t know how long it will be in the shop. For the time being, I using Pinky to do work. I had to update my browsers, Chrome and Firefox, and get some of my files onto Pinky. After that, I got right to work. I got my chapters done for the day.

On another note, I first Camp a day early. I think I will write to add one more page just before I validate it. Tomorrow, I get to start on my seventh Durarara fic, Caged Wonderland, in the Wonderland series. I am really excited!

Despite it not charging when plugged up, Pinky runs just like it did for the clock battery died. I can’t wait to get Celty back. Until then…

Going Nowhere, but Planning

Still no editor yet. I’m still giving some advice on what to do. Meanwhile, I am planning like always. I have a new Durarara fic coming up next week. It’s all part of the Wasteland Project like it always is. It will be titled Caged Wonderland. I can’t wait to get started. Camp Nano Part Two is winding down. (I won’t finish the book this year, but I will add more when camp rolls around again.) I have been ahead a day lately. Most of Book I will be finished by the thirty-first. I might go back and add more details to it next year. I will have to see.

I think Celty (laptop #2) needs to have the battery port replaced. It will charge normally at first, but then it will stop and start charging repeatedly. I have tried updating Celty. I tried defragging it. I even reset the internal battery and cleaned the port. Still doing the same thing. At first, I thought it was either battery or the charge chord. I called the Acer tech support and they said it’s the fixed. I watch a video on how to fix and battery port and realized I’m not skilled enough to do that. The most I have done for a laptop is to change Pinky’s (laptop #1) keyboard. So, I might have to take it to the shop and get it fixed. That is going to cost money and I am broke. I will at least give the computer shop a call and talk to them. That should be free, right?

Speaking of Pinky, that laptop is having problems too. When I plug it up, it is plugged, but it doesn’t charge. When I boot it up, it says that something is wrong with AC adapter. I think I might need a new charge chord for that one. My mom suggests it’s the internal battery. I don’t know if I will have that fixed or not. It is an old laptop, but it still works. I will have to see what I feel like doing. While I do that, you can…

The Search is Still Going

I decided to take my search in a different way. I already know that developmental editing will not be cheap. I decided to try and see what the reasonable price would be for a developmental editor. I asked around at all of the writing communities that I am part of. I have seen some good tips. Some are saying that publishing houses have editors in them. They commented that Steel Prison isn’t long enough to be a novel. (Hence why I am going to a developmental editor in the first place.) They all agree that it’s really expensive. A couple of them offer some sites to check out for future reference. I bookmarked them and I will go back read them.

I need to go back to looking for an agent again. I’m trying hard to curve my laziness. It’s working, but it needs to go faster. I will keep working at it. What do you think? Do you have any ideas for a reasonable price for a developmental editor? Leaves your comments in the comment section of this post. While you’re at it…

Brexit Sinks Further Into the Ocean

Well, it has happened.

Boris Johnson is gone! He has resigned this morning. Theresa May is screwed. It looks like Brexit might be canceled. I was told no, but it’s just getting worse by the day. I love England as much as I love Japan, but they and the rest of the UK didn’t think this through. They are like a little kid who told their parent that they were running away, but didn’t pack any food, water, clothes, money, or even plan out a destination. I am just over here shaking my head. Maybe they will cancel Brexit or get back into the EU in some way. Who knows?

Meanwhile, you can…
