Reading Challenge 2022.01
Reading Challenge — ver. 2022.01
The Reading Challenge challenges us to choose 10 articles, comment on them and say what lessons we have learned from them!
As I limit myself mainly to the guild channels plus the current challenge one, I have decided to try to discover some new stuff and have a closer look at articles out of my bubble. There is an added value to that — it lowers the chances of articles with less formatting/visuals/CSS magic to remain stagnant and less visible. In such cases (no likes, no comments, crickets in the background...) authors can either ask for feedback, wait or take a step back and think again and again what is wrong. And asking for feedback is usually difficult, especially when one is starting their journey.
- written by people I don't follow
- written by people who made it by a small margin
- works that had little Likes
- works that were well structured
The choice was made the way to promote writers I do not recognize from the Discord server. Some people shy from engaging in the channels but more often than not find it heratwarmingly surprising that someone reads, likes and comments on their work. So I selected 10 such authors and their works.

Takeaway: Pay more attention to worldbuilding species — every single part can find a use.
Takeaway: Show facts from clashing perspectives — strange and not logic with carefully planned. Misinformation is a powerful tool!

Takeaway: Remember about skill differences especially in large guilds — the reputation can be dramatically different with respect to class, wealth, etc.
Takeaway: Challenge the tropes and concepts — like species adapting to new environments, physically, magically, metaphysically.
Takeaway: Remember the power of political shit talk.
Takeaway: Mess up the character's life then make him work to make it better as if it had been their fault all along.
Takeaway: Remember to add an element of chaos to carefully planned attacks, which can potentially break them.

Takeaway: Add information on importance of the region to the race/races.
New Year, New Resolutions
Reading is one game I want to up this year, so this challenge is already giving me a hand. The other would be writing more and freely. I want to stop limiting myself to a single genre or length, e.g., only novels. So fI began transferring new worlds, barely stubs now, but I want them to flourish. The next stop would be artwork, including but not limited to maps. I need to understand perspective and shading. Gods, I'd love to draw the characters I have in my mind...
Finally, handicrafts... While reading and writing will take a lot of strain onto my eyes, handicrafts will help me relax and do something more material. So I plan to get back to woodworking, sewing and many, many others. Let the creativity burn wherever it likes! Handicraft can make for some wonderful article material and I plan to do at least one
I would also like to be bestowed upon the power to organize it all and stretch the daytime to 72h. Thank you. That was my TED Talk.
