‘Time of Death’ covers the ‘rebirth’ of Obi-Wan into the force after he is struck down by Darth Vader on the Death Star. I think you landed one of the most high-profile storylines covered in the book. How did you go about writing your short story?
I wish I had some great secret to impart here, but in all honesty, it was something of a flow of consciousness, which considering the subject matter is probably appropriate. I knew where I was going with it, and which points I had pitched to Elizabeth, but I had no idea how it would all fit together. Luckily it flowed quite easily, the first draft written in one mammoth writing session fuelled by coffee and John Williams soundtracks. I do remember the draft needed A LOT of work before I could submit it though.
