Lower my inhibitions…

"I love it when a plan comes together." As Col. John Hannibal Smith from the A-Team would say. {yeah this is an old fav TV show)

I was thinking about the A-Team the other day. If you ever watched the show you know rarely did any of the schemes the team came up with worked out how they expected. Yet in the end they still succeeded in foiling the bad guy or alluding capture.

Now back to why I was thinking about the A-Team the other day and it lowered my inhibitions. I've been writing a book and it was giving me problems It wasn't going as planned. Yeah I knew I might have to throw out the notes and just go with it but I was hesitant. So I took a break and relaxed with the thought that it would help me with my story. There I was watching Iron Chef (yeah I love TV. LOL) then all of a sudden the phrase above popped into my head. It was very disconcerting to be watching Alton Brown talking about the action in Iron Chef and then hearing Hannibal’s voice instead.

It threw me for a minute then I went back to Iron Chef. As the day wore on and into the next I kept hearing the plan comes together line in my head. Then it dawned on me why I kept thinking of it. Although A-Team’s plans didn’t go as they planned they used some of it and then had to change it up to go with the twist that came there way.

My plans for my novel might not be working but I could still use some of it. So I lowered my inhibitions you could say and took out part of my plans for future use then went back to work. Now my story is flowing well and I’m working the twists in seamlessly. Yippee.

Since I was hearing TV shows in my head. It got me to thinking what other shows I could compare it to. I've talked about Amazing Writer Race on my blog. Now A-Team. Hmmm… which show will be next {laughing wickedly}.

Come on and share what show do you sometimes feel you can compare your day to day to.

Hi Taige, I watched the A-Team, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Of course, that's was one of my favorite sayings. And, still is.

Oh, those twists and turns in writing! I'm going through that with my current WIP.

Now, I don't watch TV.
