Write like The Force Awakens

A few weeks ago, I wrote an article complaining about one of the reasons why the writing of the Star Wars prequels felt so uninspired. Largely I think it has to do with the eradication of a sense of wonder and mystery. Everything seems logical, but in a cold, heartless way. We're presented with  the backstory of this universe, but it isn't an exciting unveiling of this foreign galaxy--it's more of a bland history lesson.
