I have a bad habit of stopping things before they’re finished. This happens with books, movies, television shows— even updating this blog you’re currently visiting.
I get bored, or tired, or lazy, or something else will happen that I use as a road block for getting stuff done. Momentum is a tricky thing like that. Once you lose it, it gets harder and harder to get your shit back together and get back in the game.
The truth is that it’s easier to give up than persist. It’s easier to blame every known external factor instead of confronting the voice in your head and owning the fact that there’s nothing else to blame for your lack of progress. You’re the one watching Bojack Horseman for the fifth time.
After months of absence (that I’m sure you all felt) and debating whether or not I should give up on this whole blogging thing, I decided to rebrand and give it another go (this time on WordPress, where it should have been all along, let’s be real).
Hence, Timothy Writes.
It’s a fitting name, don’t you think? My name is Timothy, and I’m writing about stuff! I actually started writing this post by hand because my MacBook had to update and is taking her sweet, sweet time, which makes the title all the more fitting – I am literally writing!
But enough with the stupid puns. What am I going to write about?
I’ve written before about my love of Star Wars, and how it took several years of willful ignorance for me to rejoin the joyous chorus of the Star Wars fandom, but with all the hubbub around The Force Awakens, I wanted to take a moment to talk about the events leading up to the movie’s third trailer debut.
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am so flipping excited about The Force Awakens. It looks like a true return to form for the Star Wars franchise. J.J. Abrams seems to be utilizing practical effects over excessive CG, John Williams is back scoring the music, and the original cast is back. It’s going to be amazing, and blah, blah, blah.
You get it. I get it. We all get it. Star Wars is amazing, and Episode VII is going to break all the box office records of past, present, and future.
