Summer Camp 2022

Pledge



The beach may not be in the plans this year but I will be diving into the Summer Camp Challenge! Being inspired by constraints and creating with a goal defines what I like about Summer Camp. I'll be writing short flash fiction articles that will support my novel writing and TTRPG projects.

 

I do a similar challenge in February and World Ember of course. With this Summer Camp, I will have completed each of the challenges 2 times. I have over 100 Flash Fiction Stories set in my world and look forward to turning that into an anthology. I have to determine the order and placement of the stories and there are some gaps. I hope to fill some of those in, particularly with the Expanse and Leadership Themes.

 

I enjoy exploring my world, feeling out the spaces and sharing that with the reader or player. I'll be keeping an eye out for when a prompt could help expand on lore that I can use in the next story arc in my weekly D&D game or my Patreon games. There is a new villian that has been uncovered. The novel starts in the expanse where the villian is located so developing that will help me explore motivations and develop a deeper story. I'll round out the month with exploring the new monsters and challenges of that domain, hopefully peppering the articles with hooks for more flash fiction going forward.

 

Challenge Goal: Diamond

 

Expanse Theme: Expand on urban stories, pocket dimensions, or the domain of Glain. Backup expanses include the Unilynn and Kobold Plains

 

Leadership Theme: Lavani, Glain, Ranon, Tamil and Damik, Grandma Willow

 

Discovery Theme: Ruins in the forest, plants, locations in the domain of Glain

 

Monstrous Theme: new monsters, loose ends damaging the world, cruelty and injustice in the South

Lavani's Reading List

My main character, Lavani, is a collector of stories. She would love to read about your world. You can submit articles to her to read via her Twitter account or by leaving a comment on her Reading List page here on World Anvil. Once a week in July and every day in August she will give a review on articles submitted. I'll put it in your article comments and share it as journal entry on the World Anvil Page/Community User Stream. Plus, she'll post it on Twitter. She has 600 creative followers on Twitter! Looking forward to writing and hanging out with everyone for Summer Camp!

 

Inspiration



Planning for Success

I feel like I have fine tuned my daily schedule for writing over the last year. I will have a couple 30 minute slots during the day that I will be able to write. At 9pm I will also have several hours where I tend to have my most focused time. I have a process set up for writing and sharing my articles that I just need to repeat each day. If I fall behind I can double up on prompts or drop some of the layout and editing time until August.
