Writing Fiction

Hello Everyone,

Usually by this time in July I’m about three of four posts into the SWCP, as summer is when I get a lot of work done.  But this summer I’m putting the project on the back-burner for a bit to focus on some fan-fiction that has been percolating in the back of my mind for a while.  After reading nothing but Star Wars for four years I feel I want to contribute my little bit narrative to the ever expanding mythology.   When I’m done I’ll create another blog and post-up what I’ve written for your perusal.   

I’m  currently in the process of getting the story down – It’s taken hold of my imagination and has not let me go. Right now I’m simply trying to work it out of my system. 

Since the end of June I’ve been reading my way through The Living Force sourcebook in preparation for the Eye of the Sun trilogy, but every time I sat down to either read the sourcebook or write my thoughts on it I immediately opened my short story file and began working on that, so I thought, forget it –  I’ll go where my creative energy is taking me and I’ll work on the project when this story is out of the way.

I’m not sure when I’ll have it done.  It might take the summer to complete, but I hope to have it done before then.  With three little ones at home and my summer already booked with day trips to the beach and afternoons spent at the splash-pad I'm not sure when it'll get done.  Hopefully before the end of the month - that's time time-frame I've set for myself.  What is more, finding time to actually sit down and write is becoming increasingly more difficult.  Everyone wants a little piece of dad.

Not to worry though– the project will continue on, I’m just going to explore this deviation in creative energy for a while.  Until then my friends, may the Force be with you.


  1. You might want to go back. Dawn of the Jedi has come out. It bassicly goes into pre-republic era. It's a coming book series. Volume 1 Force Storm (contains the issues of the first story-arc) is already out. So is the insider story Eruption and the novel Into the Void. Into the Void takes place at the same time as the comic book story arc Force Storm. The collected edition of the second comic story arc The Prisoner of Bogan won't come out till later this month. And then us Star Wars fans have to wait a while until the next story arc Force Wars starts.

  2. I'm definitely going to go back and read Dawn of the Jedi. I actually picked up the TBP a few weeks ago. I'm looking forward to Into the Void as well. It's all stuff that I'm going to have to look at for my own fictions anyway. Thanks for reading my blog :)

  3. Volume 2 of Dawn of the Jedi is out now. It's called Prisoner of Bogan.

  4. I'll be picking up a copy of this, along with Kenobi, very soon I think.
