I've come round to "moonlight lit" although you could always rephrase it as something like "silver-white moonlight mingled with the sulphur-yellow streetlights, bleaching the streets below and leaving pools of inky shadow". Or just rephrase it so "moonlight" and "lit" don't appear next to each other in the sentence.
Or don't, it's your story after all.
I've never been much of a talker, and I've always believed actions spoke louder than words.
Thankfully I knew someone that fancied himself as an eloquent speaker and was willing to step in for me.
Bip-bap! Blam! My friend defused the situation with an elegance that only 9 millimetre bullets had.
"I've never been much of a talker, I always believed actions spoke louder than words.
Thankfully I had a friend who was not so tongue-tied and happily spoke for me. Loudly and eloquently, he made my point for me.
'Bip-bap! Blam.' His 9mm voice cracked and rang, echoing in the alley below."
At very least, I'd change ... knew someone that fancied himself...
to ... knew someone who fancied himself...
I dunno really, these are just suggestions. Like I say it's your story. Looking forward to the next journal entry.
