It's a start? Urg. I know where I want the next chapter to go, I just can't get it to go there! *scowls at* But, I have a nifty new writing toy and it's WAY COOL! Thanks to [personal profile] nkfloofiepoof for recommending the Scrivener program - it took me a whole day to get through the tutorial, but once you get the hang of it, it's really quite handy, especially if you're trying to organize a lot of information and snippets of writing and character notes and links to websites and figure out timelines and such. You can download and try out for free for 30 days (nonconsecutive, even), but after that it's $40. I haven't forked out yet, but I'm thinking I just might. It even has an automatic character name generator! Here's what you get if you specify Ancient Assyrian first names and Dutch last names:

Shullay Nickel
Samsi Vanderzee
Zimrilim Verley
Yangi Burkart
Ashurreshishi Bosson
Mithridates Bitters
Ili-Hadda Cloos
Sammu-Ramat Dierks
Tehuteshub Jansing
Tudiya Pettersen

Sadly, there is no setting for generating Cybertronian OC names *sigh*

In lieu of Chapter 4, here's a Project Reset Prequel-Squared ficlet thingy:

Barricade's day sucks. Big time. )

It's the drive-through holidays here, so I'm off to entertain the next set of aunt and uncle stopping by, but I wanted to get this up finally. I thought I had this chapter pretty much figured out during NaNo, but it decided to veer all over the place in rewrite. I'll probably let it percolate for awhile and maybe poke it a bit, then cross post later in the week. Merry Happy Joyous to all!

Written last night for [livejournal.com profile] antepathy, and inspired in goodly part by her excellent fic, Chance. One nice thing about the movie, for all its faults, it does rather kick you in the pants to get writing ^_~ Not that I particularly know where this is going, lol

Title: Project Reset
Rating: K
Wordcount: 811

Hatchling, descriptions of hatching, Dark of the Moon spoilers, etc. Sort of cranky fluff and snuggles? Because First Aid snuggles can fix anything, yes. )

Read the DotM book version last night and this morning - about what I expected as I've not been avoiding the spoilers at all. I've already cut for spoilers )

Taking Kettle to get her stitch out, then grocery, laundry, some yard work - I've not kept up with the weeds with as busy as it's been, and mom was here last Saturday with her weed sprayer. Me following her around going "NO! Not there!" I said she was allowed to spray the weeds in the driveway, that's all. I love her dearly, but we have somewhat different ideas on teh gardening. I kinda like the shaggy natural look - interesting rather than manicured, and think that the weeds in the cracks of the driveway are nifty, too, but destroying them makes mom happy, so...

Planning to hit the 4pm showing of DotM today, non-3-D. Those glasses are annoying!

Must schedule some soul-searching in here somewhere. I'm in danger of being promoted again at work, to nature center manager, not park manager at least, but still...I really am probably the best person for the job, but a whole lot less creative stuff and a whole lot more budgets, meetings, people managing, and the ever-frustrating building maintenance and red-tape of DOOM. O_o

Ok! Off to ponder and de-stitch! and movie!

Update: de-stitchification took all of three seconds; Kettle thought it was awesome! :P Somehow managed to buy six paving stones, and a pretty wire trellis to hide the huge standard-issue trash thing we're all required to use now. It's as tall as I am - makes it interesting trying to lift the bags up and over; I've learned not to fill them very full, lol. Also got some pretty, tall nasturtium seeds to grow over the trellis, and a new variety of coneflower. I'm not allowed near a garden store for at least another month!
