Ok here is a compilation of all the software and useful tools I’ve come across whilst writing. Some of them I’ve reviewed on here already, more coming soon. 

Got an idea? Well get planning! Here’s some useful outlining, brainstorming and mind- mapping software:

Just want to get writing? You want a word processor:

Making notes? Here you go:

Timelines giving you a headache? Try these:

Now perhaps you want to organise those notes. Got a lot of research? Character sheets? Images? Well here’s some tools to keep all that together:

Turns out I’d forgotten about screenwriters, so here goes:

I’m feeling generous, have some more cool stuff:

ETA: After a request I’ve added screenplay software to the list.

In 2012, SWAG77 investigated the idea of the Corellian Jedi as a story Disney Lucasfilm could pursue. We created a Facebook Page, but no other social media nodes:

The above picture is Jedi Master Nejaa Halcyon, son of Keiran Halcyon. Nejaa has a son, who was not Force sensitive, but his grandson, was named “Corran Horn” who is a famous Star Wars Legends character in several books.

Darth Vader did kill the Corellian Jedi, but he did not identify all their children of the Force.

What is key here is roughly 1000 years earlier, the Corellian Jedi came to the main Jedi Council Coruscant to tell them the turn to the Dark Side. That is when the Corellian Jedi Thame Cerulian rejoined the Jedi Order on Coruscant and studied the ways of the Force to understand why there was this turn to the Dark Side. Master Cerulian trained Count Dooku as a child.

In scant paperwork, we wrote metas and headcanons to make this idea work for RP, it did not in our hands.

Since there is a new Darth Vader comic out, where he’s “Force Holding” the baby of Jedi Master Eeth Koth, it seems like one of the lost metas we had written 3-4 years ago proves to be true. It took a generation of Jedi to come to the realization that the Dark Side would overtake the galaxy, so in and of themselves, they secretively pursued an outreach to their futures and families.


Not everyone can separate their strong tie for self-sovereignty and autonomy. Most individuals feel strong about having a family of their own. It may be written in their DNA.

But the Jedi are to refrain of those desires through meditation and supplication. Always flowing with the Force…

It is different for Jedi – breeding, such as HAVING SEXUAL REPRODUCTION AND bearing the children (for mothers) and siring children (for fathers) detracts from what it means to be a Jedi in the Jedi Order.

You can’t be selfless to your own child, you must protect them as their parent. You cannot just WATCH while your family you love are harmed, you must fight for them, even in your own death.

There is also a problem of who you are having sex with, that boss-employee, or mentor-mentee is always rife with unethical problematic power positions. Yes, it happens, but it is still inappropriate in a democratic ethical society because there is always the question of consent, i.e. was it made without any clouded behavior from the Dark Side of the Force.

Relationships divide emotions always. So of course the Dark Side of the Force will use that to put a wedge between lovers, especially in a power dynamic.

The question really becomes: Are there any pair-bonds that are allowable for Light Sided Force users?

We here at Imperial Security Bureau are extremely concerned by the reports of an Imperial Regional Governors being murdered on the Outer Rim planets of Batuu and Vandor,” The Director of Imperial Intelligence said. “Our concerns go out to the families and friends of the dead. Every day, new holoreports of persecution are being documented in the Outer Rim. Many Regional Governors fear this may be the new normal for the planets as Rebel enclaves and others that support them have been allowed to attack the Governors and other Imperials with impunity. The Outer Rim must take steps to counter the growing wave of intolerance and violence.

….younglings from parents, as did the Jedi etc., because that is the policy and law. I tried to keep them together but the problem is, when you do that, vast numbers of additional aliens storm the Core. So with Valorum and the Senate seperation [sic] is fine, but with Emperor Palpatine it’s not. Fake 60 Parsecs!

A spokesperson for the Red Nights of Light said: “We here at Red Nights of Light are extremely concerned by the reports of our missionary being murdered in the Galaxy’s Bimmiel planet.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to both Mongei Shai’s Domain. A full investigation must be launched in this this murder and those responsible must be brought to justice.”

This murder comes at a time when the Red Knights of Light report ever escalating levels of persecution across the galaxy…

The Galaxy has a history of xenophobic attacks on alien missionaries. Grasta Inesham a human from Ithor missionary, was burned alive along with his two sons Fili, age 10, and Thyo, age 6. A mob of Kanjiklub gangsters attacked the missionary and his crechelings while they sleeping in their Bioship in Ruprahonam village, located in the Kendu District on Ithor.

Across the Galaxy, reports of persecution continue to escalate in both number and severity. Much of this escalation in persecution followed the rise of the current First Order-led government. Using divisive rhetoric for political gain, First Order officials incite JEEDAI radicals to take action against those who practice the religious faith. When the First Order-led government took power, the Evangelical True Way Fellowship of the Galaxy (ETWFG) documented 147 incidents of the Faithful’s persecution. After three rotations of Rhommamool of the First Order current government, ETWFG documented 351 incidents of the Faithful’s persecution.

Many of the Faithful are angry this may be the new normal for their Domains as JEEDAI radicals and others have been allowed to attack the Faithful and other Peace Brigades with impunity. The Galaxy must take steps to counter the growing wave of intolerance and violence.

Listen to John Williams’ new score for Disney’s Star Wars theme parks

Legendary composer John Williams will provide an original score that visitors will hear within the attractions of the Star Wars-themed land of Galaxy’s Edge, opening at Disney’s theme parks next year.

Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive preview of Williams’ score in the video above, along with a new aerial view of the alien world of Batuu, currently under construction at both Disneyland in Anaheim, California, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida.

The village, known as Black Spire, is a remote trading outpost tucked amid the rocky spikes of an ancient petrified forest. The town serves as a Casablanca-like nexus between the forces of good, evil, and in between as they clash over control of the galaxy.

Disney tells EW there will be even more music for the 14-acre park expansions from Williams.

Screaming, just a little.

Rest in Peace legend. Stan Lee has passed away, at the age of 95.

Thinking about his story, he kept us going when days were the hardest.

Emperor Palpatine believes in a free HoloNet and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and the Empire. We will, however, never tolerate a Senator placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a Imperial intern. This conduct is absolutely unacceptable. It is also completely disrespectful to the Senator’s colleagues not to allow them an opportunity to ask a question. Emperor Palpatine has given the HoloNet more access than any Galactic Leader in history. Contrary to the HoloNet’s assertions there is no greater demonstration of the Emperor’s support for a free HoloNet than the event he held today. Only they would attack the Emperor for not supporting a free HoloNet in the midst of him taking 68 questions from 35 different Senators over the course of 1.5 parsecs including several from the Senator in question. The fact that HoloNet is proud of the way their employee behaved is not only disgusting, it‘s an example of their outrageous disregard for everyone, including young women, who work[s] in this Empire. As a result of today’s incident, the Empire is suspending the hard pass of the Senator involved until further notice.
