Taking the Plunge

Inspired by a recent blog post written by a friend, I have decided to stop talking smack about doing it and just do it!

That’s right, I’m going to write a novel.  A practice one.  I’m going to write a little bit of fan fiction, so there is no way I could possibly sell this.  That should actually be a bit liberating.  I can experiment to my heart’s content.

I’ll probably post the results on FanFiction.net as chapters are completed.  Of course, I’ll link to them from here.

I’ve had an idea in my head kicking and screaming to be let out for a long time.  Back when I still lived in my old apartment, back before I started dating the woman that would become my wife.  I thought the idea out, but I never actually wrote a single word.

I thought, wouldn’t it be cool if they had made an A-Team movie?

Yeah, I know it’s been done.

But I had the idea I’m about to set on paper back in 2002; I just never did anything with it.

My idea: the A-Team is wrongly convicted of treason and sentenced to life in prison.  They escape, determined to track down the one person that could possibly free them, a Los Angeles-based reporter named Amy Allen, who wrote a book on why the team is innocent.

As it happens, the Team was set up by forces within the government locking away a terrible secret.

As they attempt to discover the truth, they are pursued by the US Army, who will stop at nothing to make sure they don’t find the truth.  And, a Deputy US Marshall who might be an ally if the truth does come out…

I thought the crossover from The Fugitive would be fun.  Who better to pursue the A-Team than the hard-nosed Gerard?

Hopefully, this will be as much fun for everyone to read as it will be for me to write.
