Lightsabre Interviews Drew Karpyshyn

Posted By Mike on December 22, 2008



Stop by and visit our friends over at Lightsabre for their latest celebrity interview with Drew Karpyshyn, author of the Darth Bane novel series and much more. Click here and navigate to the interview section of the site. Excerpt below:


Q - Where do you draw your inspiration? The blank page can be a very intimidating sight - what's the initial spark that leads to that first word?

A - That's a question I've never known how to answer. Ideas are everywhere, just floating around me. I can't go a week without getting an idea for a great story. The trick is taking that idea and shaping it into something fit for public consumption, and that usually just means forcing myself to sit down and write. Ideas are fun; developing them into a full blown novel is work - that's where I earn my money.

Q - With the Darth Bane novels you appear to have a huge scope to create galactic history and set into motion events which thematically play out in the movies. What kind of freedom - a freedom that a writer working in the Galactic Civil War wouldn't have - does that give you as a writer? Or is the KOTOR era already drawn out and plotted?

A - My editors at Del Rey and Lucas Books were very open to letting me develop the story I wanted in the way I wanted. Obviously I tried to keep to the spirit of previous works set in the era (particularly the Dark Horse comic series), but being the only author working in that time I have as much freedom as I could possibly want.
