Summer Camp 2022
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.
