I saw The Force Awakens again yesterday. And I loved it with every fiber of my being.
I am the person and writer I am in no small part due to Star Wars. I know I’m not alone in this. I’m not claiming to be singularly influenced in a deeper way than anyone else, yadda yadda. But here this is my story. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
I don’t remember a time when I hadn’t seen Star Wars. Its structure and tone has left an indelible mark on me.
