Summer Camp 2022

Diamond and chill

The Pledge

 
I pledge to aim for the diamond badge during Summer Camp 2022. I also pledge to find joy in creation, not to burn myself out, and to throw myself back into the community that has given me so much.
— Emy
 

Summer Camp in Etrea

  Etrea is currently undergoing some major changes. I'm reworking and rewriting some old articles to make the world more consistent and more interesting; some things that have been in place in the world since I was thirteen are coming out to make for a more cohesive world.   For Summer Camp, I intend to make stub articles for all 31 prompts. Also, I want to finish both the world introduction and magic articles in my spare time.  

Summer Camp in Vazdimet

  This year, I became a co-author in Vazdimet, a space-faring science fantasy world created by M H Biscup.   My Summer Camp 2022 is mainly going to be set in this world. I'm going to use the 31 prompts to create a new planet, which will hopefully give rise to many more stories and articles.   At the moment, I'm not sure what kind of planet or society I'm going to create, as I'm waiting for the first wave of prompts to see what inspiration comes to me. I'm quite excited to be able to let my imagination run wild this year, as well as giving myself a solid base to work from in the future.  

The Community

  One of my main goals for Summer Camp 2022 is to throw myself back into the World Anvil community. The past year has been quite difficult personally and I have found myself not able to engage as much as I would have liked to. This doesn't apply only to reading and commenting, but also to interacting in the Discord.   I would like to read and comment on a few articles a day during Summer Camp. My goal is to not burn myself out on reading at the expense of my own worldbuilding this year. However, I still want to read some articles because I find the creativity of the community so inspiring!   I am also striving to embody Nnie's Camp Chill, so if it all gets too much I will re-evaluate my goals.
 

Nnie's Camp Chill Guidelines



- Remember the prompts are suggestions, not requirements.
 
- Write what you're passionate about, leave what you aren't.
 
- Relax when you feel tired.
 
- Fight off any pesky brain-squitos trying to make you doubt your work.
 
- Don't abandon your non-summercamp goals! Write that article you're itching to write, even if it doesn't fit any prompts.

I think stub articles for the prompts and focusing on your own priorities; magic articles and the introduction, sounds like a good approach. I hope you have a great Summer Camp, and an excellent time letting your imagination run wild!

Thanks! :D You too! <3

I love all of this, especially "Diamond and Chill," because I saw the "Camp Chill" thing for the first time yesterday and thought, "That sounds awesome, but am I allowed to be chill if I also want to go for Diamond?" A silly question I know, but I was asking it—and now you've answered it. If Emy can be Diamond and Chill, so can I!   Anyway, I'm psyched to hear that we can look forward to a little bit of Etrea to go along with your Vazdimet work. I'm just always thrilled to get to read your words. :-)   P.S. I may have an idea for a species of mushroom people, if the right prompt comes up, which I will totally dedicate to you if I do it. :-)

Eee, mushroom people! That's exciting. :D   Diamond and chill is definitely going to be my mantra for the month, haha. :) Thanks, Chris!

This is going to be so exciting! I can't wait to see what happens with the freedom you're granting yourself this summer <3

"Diamond and chill" - What a great attitude to have for this kinda thing :) It makes me happy to see some pledges that have reminders not to burn oneself out - Something we all need reminding of sometimes.   I look forward to seeing what you create, and I hope you have fun working towards your goals!

Best of luck Emy! This pledge has given me a lot to think about. It's very easy to get bogged down and forget the joy of worldbuilding sometimes :)

Thanks! The joy of worldbuilding is really what I want to rediscover this year. :)
