May the 4th be with you

May the 4th be with you

Happy Star Wars Day, all you Jedi Masters and Sith Lords out there.

I must confess, much like last year the day sneaked up on me again. But that doesn’t mean I’m leaving you empty-handed. Thanks to the wonder that is the interwebs, I give you Origami Yoda, the newest member of my writing cheerleading squad with his well-known maxim:

Origami Yoda on a Writer's Block
Write. Or write not. There is no try.

If you want to take a shot at folding one yourself, here’s a video, but be warned, it will confound you and try you and leave you bleeding from a thousand-and-one paper cuts.

In honour of Star Trek and Star Wars fans bashing on each other (personally I stay out of that fight – like Harry Dresden’s apprentice, Molly, I believe it’s okay to like both), here’s a video on how Star Trek (the reboot) should have ended. The really good bit is at two minutes, thirty seconds.

Enjoy your Star Wars Day, whichever side of the force you serve.

And live long and prosper 😛

    1. I wouldn’t have been able to without the video, and even then it took me two tries. I’ve done a few origami projects (for our first anniversary (paper) I made my wife an origami gerbera (her favourite flower)), but this is by far the most advanced one I’ve ever done.

  1. I have always wanted to do origami so I bought a kit. The first project had me so frustrated that I didn’t bother trying another one. Yes, I am a quitter!

    1. No, don’t say that. Sure, it’s frustrating, but it feels so good when you finally nail it. My tip: Youtube. Watching a video is so much easier than deciphering those folding diagrams. And start with something simple. If you’re easily discouraged the force is clearly not yet strong enough in you to attempt Yoda 😉

    1. For sure! I only discovered him two years ago, so I’m still playing catch-up. I just finished White Night and Small Favor is lying on my shelf waiting for its turn.
