The New STAR WARS: EPISODE VII Video is Wonderful and Inspiring

I was getting ready to head out for ConnectiCon this morning and I figured I'd catch up on some of the news out of San Diego Comic Con. Last night, a new production vido from the set of Star Wars: Episode VII was released, and it actually brought me to tears:



Now, as a lifelong Star Wars fan, of course I was excited to see Mark Hamill, Peter Mayhew, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford on a Star Wars set again. But what got me so emotional was to see the love that those involved have for this project, and the pure imagination that is being displayed in every detail of what we've seen so far.

My favorite part of writing is creating characters and worlds, people and places that readers get to know and explore over their time with a story. I think this video really captures that feeling of creative excitement, and of making something you can't wait to share with others. It made me want to write the second I was done watching it.
