TJ's Summer Camp 2022 Pledge in Melior | World Anvil

TJ's Summer Camp 2022 Pledge



My creative goal for Summer Camp this year is to have fun expanding the continent of Anvil in my world, and my motivation is to be able to create a fully interactive chronicle with many historical events and locations that are all interconnected.

Much like last year, I'm not aiming for a particular number of prompts to complete - I'm just going to worldbuild and have fun without any burnout!

I am working on a shiny new map to show you (sneak peek in the header image)!

Writing & Accountability

Oh boy, July will be busy. I'll be writing here and there amidst juggling the exciting chaos of travelling out to Argentina and getting married to my wonderful nerd fianc√© Naelin :D <3   I'm here to keep my lodge family motivated and be an accountability partner - and I'll certainly be calling on them for support in writing sprints and focus time to get some solid worlbuilding done together!
