Big –coming out of retirement-news!

Greetings all.

I was going to wait until after Labor Day to post this announcement, but the news is just too big!

Yup. The rumors are true. After a little over a year in hiatus, Jawa Juice is coming back to the blog-o-sphere. I wasn’t sure if I was going to do it, but after a while, the little voices in my head kept pestering me….”come on out and play…” JJ is just in my blood, I guess and there are still stories to be told.

So I decided to bring him out of retirement.

But…he’s not the only one coming out of retirement. In fact, J.J. may be returning but he won’t be returning to his old site. Instead a new site has been created where not one…not two…but three old, once retired bloggers will be returning.

You heard me right! Along with myself, Rebecca who voices the whimsical, free-form force ghost, Qui-Gon will be coming along for the ride. (Ya can’t have J.J. without Qui-Gon, now can ya?)

But that’s not all…

In addition to us, one other name will be coming back to the fold, if only from time to time…

Bill Johnson…aka Master Yoda!!!

You heard me right. The three of us will be sharing a blog and writing satirical Star Wars stories featuring our spoofed characters we’ve breathed life into during the hay days of SW blogging.

But don’t look for us to write just as our usual characters. The three of us decided we wanted to return but didn’t want the pressures of writing all the time or stuck as our well known characters. Thus this community blog. With three of us periodically writing in it, there is a lesser need for any one of us to carry the load. And with a myriad of characters to write as, hopefully we won’t get burnt out too quickly.

(We almost roped in a fourth old timer but it looks like he’s decided to return by himself.

…welcome back…Fluke Starbucker!!!)

Oh, and our blog?

It’s As the Force Turns.

We’ll see ya there.
