City Lounge: Paris (Book Three, Chapter Twelve: Simple Dinner in Paris)

Chapter Twelve: Simple Dinner in Paris:

Simone led us into the downtown part of Paris. I’ve seen this place before, but it never fails to surprise me.

“This never gets old,” I said. I pulled Simone close by the waist. “Lead the way.” I whispered above her head. My girl giggled as we walked down the street. We ended up at a restaurant called Il était Un Square.

“What do you think?” she asked. I blinked at first.

“Isn’t this a bit too…?” I began to ask.

“What?” she asked. I shook my head.

“No, it’s fine,” I said. Simone led me inside. The red paint on the walls made me feel a bit underdressed. My love didn’t seem to mind. I turned to her. More

City Lounge: Paris (Book Three, Chapter Eleven: Walking Around in Paris… Again)

Chapter Eleven: Walking Around in Paris… Again:

Simone looked up at me. “Do you want to do more shopping or go get dinner?”

I shrugged. “Depends on you.”

“Sometimes, I would like you to lead the way,” my love says. I would love to, my dear. But, you have all of the power. I just happily follow you wherever you go. Simone snuggled up to me in the rain lightening up.

“I feel like walking around some more,” she said. I nodded a little bit.

“Sounds good to me,” I said. Simone smiled and giggled. Good thing that the rain is starting to stop. Paris still looks good in this weather. Texas looked so dull in the rain. I felt Simone’s head against my shoulder. More

City Lounge: Paris (Book Three, Chapter Ten: Strange Wine Shop)

Chapter Ten: Strange Wine Shop:

Simone led me down to this building made of wood. This building… Where the hell did it come from? I looked around at the other buildings on the street. Everything else looked new and modern. But this building…

“Why is it made of wood?” I asked.

“Owner’s choice,” Simone said.

“Why?” I asked.

“Because he wanted it that way,” she said. My girl walked up to the glass doors. I couldn’t take my eyes off of this shop. Wooden building. Purple lighting. Hearts on the window. Dolls hanging from the edge of the roof. Dead looking flowers in the front. Is this really a wine shop? It looks so tiny. More

City Lounge: Paris (Book Three, Chapter Nine: Walking in the Rain)

Chapter Nine: Walking in the Rain:

The rain really came down. I grabbed onto Simone as she led the way. I really wished that I could’ve brought my umbrella with me. My girl and I could cuddle together underneath it in this rain. My cheeks turned red as I pictured it.

“Do you want dinner first or shopping?” Simone asked. I looked down with a puzzled look on my face.

“Hm?” I asked.

“Do you want to eat first or go shopping more?” she asked. I smiled and shook my head.

“Can we keep walking for now?” I asked. She smiled and tapped me on the nose. More

City Lounge: Paris (Book Three, Chapter Eight: Strange Beauty)

Chapter Eight: Strange Beauty:

I still can’t figure Simone out at times. We’ve been dating for four months now. Somehow, she still manages to surprise me. I looked at a vintage movie poster on the wall of the record store. The woman looking all sensual in the splashes of bright pink, orange, and yellow reminded me of Simone in way. Speaking of which, I felt someone tapping me on the shoulder. I glanced out behind me from the corner of me. Simone stood, smiling.

“Want to go upstairs?” she asked. I turned around with my eyebrow raised.

“Upstairs?” I asked. “There is an upstairs?” Simone giggled and took me by the hand. Okay, my sexy witch. Where are you taking me now? More

Last Day of Camp

I’m on the last story in the collection. I am up to 48,989 words. I will be finished by today. May will bring new projects into the works. I will work on a short story that I will post on the nineteenth. There will be other short stories and the usual annual projects for May.

It will be nice to not have so much to work with. May brings me closer to work on the Wasteland Project again and I get to work on new things in May. I am about to try and get caught up on my Netflix list. Maybe Hulu too. I could have Patient X beta read and try to go back to editing Steel Prison again. So much to do in thirty-one days. Where do I even start? I’ll sort it out. I might even finish some things in May. I will have to see. I do know if I will do camp in July because I don’t know what to write. Oh and we will go back to Paris in the City Lounge in May. Look forward to all of that. For now…

Status Report: Camp is Winding Down

There are seven days left in camp. The Patient X story keeps getting longer, but I will try to wrap it up by tomorrow or Wednesday. Then, I will try to finish those last two stories in the collection to meet my 50,000 word count. Suburban Island will end in two days. I got scouted for a publishing collection. I think I have the story in mind that I want to publish. I will look over it when I finish Patient X.

Next month, I am working on a short story related to the Wasteland project. I will post it on Inkitt on May 19th. Plus, there are some other stories to finish. I am counting down to June so that I can work on season seven on of the Wasteland Project. Right now, I will see how much I get done from the rest of the week because I have jury duty.  (Fun, right?) I am confident about finishing Patient X and Suburban Island this week and on time. For now…

Publishing Plans in the Making

I am in the middle of Camp Nanowrimo here. (I’m half way through the month.) I am working on a story called Patient X from the collection. I am enjoying how this is turning out so far. I am playing with the idea of publishing it when I get it all polished up and published on Amazon.

What is it about? It’s about a hitman in a mental hospital who’s under a curse of where every time he kills someone, he inherits the worst of their traits. He’s talking to his therapist about how he ended up this way. I keep adding more days to write out this story. I’m writing it so much that I am worried that I won’t get enough time to write the last two stories in the collection. Stick around for that. While you wait…

Camp is Running!

So, I have the first two stories down for Camp. I had to play catch-up. (It’s kind of hard to stay focused when you work from home too.) But, the stories are done. I have ideas for about four or five more. I struggled with the title for a little bit. I was surprised that my cabin filled up the way it did. But, it’s going good so far.

Here is the information about my project:

Title: Cerberus’ Carnage (It might change again if I can come up with something better.)

Genre: Horror/Supernatural

Type: Short stories

Goal: 50,000 words

Summary: This is just a collection of horror stories with one to two characters in one setting.

I will let everyone know about the progress next one. For now…
