You have to read it now because the new book is coming out next month. I'm trying to make it easy!
Been talking about the new Star Wars with my buddy. The thing is, it strikes me as a 3-Act play of 3-Act plays.— Dan Head (@Dan_T_Head) October 22, 2015
In which case, it's really ANAKIN'S story. We set up who he is with Act 1, the new trilogy, Ep. 1-3.— Dan Head (@Dan_T_Head) October 22, 2015
The original trilogy, Ep. 4-6, are then the nadir of the story. They are his VILLAINY.— Dan Head (@Dan_T_Head) October 22, 2015
The new trilogy should resolve the arc, presumably with Anakin's redemption. Maybe his memory is misused, but his spirit should be heroic.— Dan Head (@Dan_T_Head) October 22, 2015
Unless, of course, you make Act 2 twice as long as Acts 1 & 3. That's technically better structure. I do it myself, constantly.— Dan Head (@Dan_T_Head) October 22, 2015
Also, if you're Disney & you paid $4B for the franchise, you'd probably like to drag it out. Make 2 new trilogies, not 1.— Dan Head (@Dan_T_Head) October 22, 2015
In that case, the new trilogy would be the super-nadir. All Hell breaks loose, and yes, Anakin/Vader would still be evil.— Dan Head (@Dan_T_Head) October 22, 2015
That's how I would write it now. People want Vader to be bad. So set up his redemption through an exploration of his past misdeeds.— Dan Head (@Dan_T_Head) October 22, 2015
Not that anyone asked me what I would do if I'd had a chance to write the story. #StarWarsTheForceAwakens— Dan Head (@Dan_T_Head) October 22, 2015

Chargers counsel confirms they'll apply for relocation to L.A. https://t.co/2HqCbUvY8G— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) October 24, 2015
This breaks my heart. I was born in San Diego and have been a Chargers fan off-and-on since the days of Dan Fouts, Kellen Winslow, Sr., and Chuck Muncie. I have no reason to follow them back to LA, though. Los Angeles has never been my town.
*sigh* This is just one more piece of my childhood swept off the board.
Army gets a scare but edges Penn 16-13 in 2OT to clinch part of the @OfficialSprintF title! https://t.co/hcBUateJPw pic.twitter.com/X6ndvcAwA0— Army WP Sprint FB (@ArmyWP_SprintFB) October 24, 2015
I didn't realize this was on or would have watched it for sure.
Sprint Football's game against Navy is next Saturday.
Jeb Bush cuts costs, Ben Carson eclipses Donald Trump in Iowa and the GOP frets https://t.co/M50Fq7ViLo pic.twitter.com/RSWsR5Gbuj— The New York Times (@nytimes) October 24, 2015
Interesting. Can't say that I saw that coming. But where I think The Donald might actually have a shot at winning the GOP nomination, I can't say the same about Ben Carson. Which makes me wonder if maybe old Jeb isn't going to find a way to pull this thing out after all.
Were expectations too high for the young, ambitious and media hungry boss of Yahoo? https://t.co/72aiqMqGmD pic.twitter.com/zOdIFBYlU0— The Economist (@TheEconomist) October 24, 2015
She got an impossible job. I think she's done okay. Yahoo is streaming an NFL game tomorrow, and they've been in the news a lot. Besides Yahoo Fiinance, the NFL, and email, what else can they offer? They need to answer that question and keep moving forward.
@ArmyWP_Football & @1stCavalryDiv will saddle up & face @RiceUniversity today! #GoArmy #BeatRice @ArmyEquip @USArmy pic.twitter.com/HVEGUiJHVc— U.S Military Academy (@WestPoint_USMA) October 24, 2015
The game is at noon today.
And that's all I've got. I need to go write this morning's swim workout. Have a good weekend!
