Summer Camp 2023
Feral and Chill
I pledge to aim for the diamond badge during Summer Camp 2023. 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.
Summer Camp in EtreaI am really excited for Summer Camp this year - some might even say 'feral'. That being said, I also want it to be a very chill month full of creativity. I am not going to aim for perfection in any of my articles, and probably won't notify them or submit them to be judged. Then again, if I write something I'm really proud of I will definitely rethink this stance.
Power + Frontier + Relics + Communication
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.
