Stars Wars Rocks
Whatcha Gonna Do When They Come For You?
23 years in law enforcement 911 Communications and Dispatch… I so get this.
OH, WHAT A THRILL: FINDING JOY FOR WRITING
Writing is a tough job. It’s complicated. It’s inspiring. It’s demanding, when you work for quality and professionalism. It is a forever education in learning and adapting. One of the most often offered pieces of advice is to write what you are passionate about. I misplaced mine somewhere lately. I was a bit lost, because I forgot what it felt like, but fortunately for me, I got a reminder. I forgot “the feeling” of one of my passions. I love Star Wars. I cannot get enough of it. I have lots of the collectables. I own all the movies, and some of the animated ones too. I write Star Wars fan fiction just because. I enjoy the video games e.g. PS3, XBox, or for PC. I have read almost every Star War book, graphic novel, and Audiobooks ever released–almost, plus technical manuals, books about the universe, the ships, weapons, and Peoples. Yup, I am crazy about Star Wars. I think it would be a blast to dress up one day, and go to a Star Wars convention. Star Wars is one of my inspirations for writing. It made me want to write my own stories. Looking at all the stuff coming out about the new movie in 2015 made me feel the joy of it again, and remember. I remember the joy of imagination and possibility I felt, because that is what Star Wars gave me–JOY. It gave it to the world really for those who get it. It is a cultural icon, and it change the movie industry. The above video is my all time favorite fan made video. I so get it. In my non-writing life I spent 23 years in law enforcement 911 Communications and Dispatch. I love the approach they used in the video. It is so real life in attitude. My point is the passion and joy make life worth living, it makes it a wondrous adventure. It is the joy that creates the passion. Joy is fleeting, yet it is what we all strive for in life. The joy from pleasure, laughter, others, and spiritual pursuits. This list can be anything. It is all about the joy. I had misplaced my joy in life, while getting tangled in the mechanics of the daily living. It is this type of passion I want to bring to my writing. Everyone has trials, hard knocks, and devastating loss, but those who can retain the joy never lose passion for life. It is a constant quest for me in everything. My worst enemy is myself. I want to find this joy I feel in Star Wars, and infuse it into my own stories. I tend to think in a philosophical manner, and in metaphor, so this joy I find in Star Wars affects all of my life, not because I think it is like real life, but because I can relate, see the reasons and solutions in epic proportions on the big screen. I dream of a better world, yet, the world we live in is phenomenal.
Star Wars VII is slated for release around December 2015
