I went to Better Than Mediocre China Buffetâ„¢ today for lunch with Evebird and the Jack Of All Geeks.

We got to talking and I went off on a tangent about more background parts of Splintered, my magnum opus Transformers novel I've been working on for the past 4 years or so.

I'm actually making substantial progress with both the main story, and fleshing out the continuum that I'm writing the story in.

For me, the real love has been in fleshing out utterly useless geek concepts in ways that are both plausible, and yet satisfy to my adult expectations of science fiction.

Part of the problem in developing the main story has been that the more I delve into the psychological issues of Hot Rod's transcendence, the more ideas I get for rationalizing the entire universe I'm trying to create.

I'm finding I've gone 180 degrees in some areas and have totally abandoned some plot ideas I spent months fleshing out before. A trivial idea I had for Metroplex has turned him into one of the most classically tragic characters that has ever graced comic book fiction and yet it has absolutely nothing to do with Splintered in and of itself.

I thought about going back and releasing this as an old school Dickensish/Hugoish serialized story with a chapter or so a month being posted. I don't know. Maybe.

Someday, it be nice to have someone come up and say they made customs of The Dirae, Metro, or Theros. That would amazing.

Just remember... just because it is based on a silly kid's toyline and cartoon doesn't mean it has to be shit.

See Beast Wars.

Damn, Frowny beat me to the punch. Again.

Heavyarms your link typing is busted. A mega-site of Bible, Christian and religious information and studies. By God's mercy, one of the largest Bible-centered sites on the web (app. 6000 pgs). If it's in the Bible, it should be on this site. Site Meter A weekly webcomic -like thingy, updated on Friday-ish. You'll laugh, you'll cry. Well, you'll mostly cry...mostly.

I find it funny to .

This would have been a good month to plunk it out...NaNoWriMo is this month. redirects there. . .
