Is there any job better than editing Sci-Fi?

giphyIn 13 days, the Twin Miracles Editorial family will be at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland in Anaheim. We have a four-hour window during which time I am highly likely to hug every single costumed employee, droid, spaceship, and creature in the place. We’ve heard the wait time for Smuggler’s Run, the Millennium Falcon ride, is up to 90 minutes, but if we do get a chance to ride, I am absolutely going to turn in my chair to whomever is sitting behind me, relative or not, and tell them, “Traveling through hyperspace ain’t like dusting crops, boy!”

I saw Star Wars in the theater 7 times with my dad and brother in 1977 at the ripe old age of 3. It is the foundation of my love of all things Science Fiction that has only grown over the four decades since.  In the years I’ve been freelancing, I’ve been fortunate enough to edit a few science-fiction pieces for burgeoning authors, including one recently that had some great homages to Star Wars, Star Trek, the Terminator series, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Superman.

When you get to read the work of a smart new author who clearly has a passion for the genre, is there anything better than getting paid money to do it too?

It will be a day long remembered …

star-wars-episode-7-cast-announceAs a general policy and rule, I keep my personal life and things I like off of this blog, since it’s only for business purposes.

But I have to throw that out the window today, with the official announcement of the main cast of Star Wars Episode VII being announced.

In this picture, you’ve got new director JJ Abrams and his main cast, which includes Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill all reprising their roles.

I was 3 years old in 1977 when the first movie came out. The Twin Miracles will be 3 years old in 2015 when Episode VII comes out.
