Star Wars in Lego: 2003-2004

Star Wars in Lego: 2003-2004

The Gray Cow posts have been extraordinarily long lately and it’s probably not a good thing. In journalism, we’re taught to be concise and to fit the entire focus of a feature in a single sentence, or nut graf. By habit, I treat every sentence that I write like a golden graf and its job is to convey every thought and tidbit of information in my noodle succinctly. At times, material floods in and I type so fast that my phone screen struggles to catch up. Yup, I write on my trusty iPhone. Ham encourages me to use my laptop but it feels archaic. Besides, a large blank screen on a laptop is more daunting to me than an iPhone screen. It screams hello and welcome to writer’s block.

By the way, I’m treating myself to sweets since I’ve written four posts ahead of schedule which is supremely rare for me. I tend to write a day before a deadline and it’s tough on our schedule at Gray Cow since I rewrite and edit constantly before a post goes live. I haven’t even discussed the photo process yet. That’s a whole beast of its own. Gray Cow operates very much like a magazine; our posts are outlined, thought-out and planned weeks and months in advance. This may all sound professional but we’re a true mess behind the scenes, especially on Thursdays when the Friday deadlines loom. It’s a fluid deadline as Gray Cow is a personal venture but it’s so depressing when we miss it. It only occurred once before due to a delayed brick order but our hearts broke nonetheless.

I apologize because I don’t have a point to this post. I know that you’re here to view the Lego Star Wars photos so I always feel that I can get away with writing about nonsense that’s about everything and nothing at the same time. Is that even possible? 😊 As with anything creative, practice is required to hone the craft. So don’t mind me. I’m here with the goal of getting the Star Wars posts up so that we’ll all know what’s missing in our respective collections and, although Gray Cow has the added benefit of keeping my writing sharp, I sometimes feel like Dr. Dre in Talking to My Diary. 😁
