Creativity comes in many forms. Today, I would like to display another form of creative expression I have been interested in with a Sons of Anarchy fanfiction story.
I’ve wrote fiction for as long as I can remember, and a couple of years ago I started working on a Sons of Anarchy fanfiction about life after the series finale.
The Mrs and I were big fans of the show when it was on the air and I always thought it would be fun to try my hand writing a story like this.
Kurt Sutter did an amazing job crafting the show from beginning to end, so I hope that my first stab at fanfiction is at least on par with the twists and turns that Kurt put into the original SOA.
The story will be a continuation from the series finale and will not be written in an alternative universe where the main characters are living completely different lives.
This story is how I feel the family would have continued on after the show ended.
A couple of years have actually gone by since I wrote the prologue and first two chapters. I’m publishing these in an attempt to get me to finish this story before NaNoWriMo, when I plan on writing a full novel.
It’s also a good way for me to test out the Chapters for Authors plugin I built and released a few months ago.
Now that I’ve had the chance to use the plugin, adding in my first book and a couple chapters I have the ability to see what needs updated in the plugin.
There’s a few things I need to update, like the addition of a widget and shortcode to display a list of books, chapters, etc. I’ve also got a few other ideas on how to make the plugin more robust, which is being actively worked on.
The release for this will be coming soon, I’m working on a few other things over at WP Dispensary first.
If you use the Chapters for Authors plugin and have any ideas on how to make it better, let me know!
Below are links to the prologue and first two chapters.
There’s additional chapters being worked on and will be published soon.
Let me know if you want to be updated on Twitter (@deviorobert), where I’m sure I’ll be tweeting about it as more chapters are released.
