WorldEmber 2022

WorldEmber is coming

What? It's November again already?
— Me, recovering from Covid
  WorldEmber 2021 didn't really work out for me - in fact, it's the only big WorldAnvil challenge I have failed since I joined back in June 2020.   This year, however, things are going to be different. After a tough year creatively, where Etrea has been almost completely neglected, WorldEmber 2022 is going to change all that.   What I'm trying to say is: I'm back.   (Hopefully.)  


  For WorldEmber 2022, I am going to be focusing on some integral articles for the world of Etrea - the sapient species. Earlier this year I revamped An Introduction to Etrea, ready for my planned overhaul of the articles I have already written (with the exception of The Teeth, which is almost to the standard to which I want all my articles to be).  
As part of the overhaul, I have been wanting to get the core articles for Etrea rewritten to limit the amount of retconning and rewriting I will have to do on the smaller articles. One you get the key lore stuff into place, after all, you're halfway there!   I have already started work on an article on magic, so that will be invalid for WorldEmber as it is already in progress. Look forward to that coming in early 2023. :)   So, as I said, for WorldEmber I will be focusing on the sapient species of Etrea:
  • Humans
  • Dragons
  • Shapeshifter
  • Merfolk
I don't expect to have beautiful polished articles by the end of it, but I am hoping to have a great base for each species to add to and make pretty.

Community Engagement

  Community engagement has always been a huge part of WorldAnvil for me. I love reading others' work and commenting on it, spreading the love and joy of worldbuilding around. This year, as I mentioned, has been really tough, and I've not been reading or commenting nearly as much as I'd like to.   For WorldEmber I'd like to commit to reading at least ten articles a day and leaving some love on them. I don't think that will be nearly enough to keep up with my notifications (RIP my inbox), so I want at least five of those articles to be from the worlds of people I don't already follow.  

Self Care

  Self care is always an important part of any challenge. My goal here is to have fun and not beat myself up if I have a day where I don't write or read anything. I will also make sure to keep checking in with my friends, as they lift me up and help keep the nasty brain goblins away.

I am a little bit concerned about your goals, ten articles a day sounds like a lot of reading! I hope you take good care of yourself and put yourself first this worldember.

My first year I was reading upwards of 50 a day, so 10 didn't seem so bad. Obviously I will revise this if it becomes too much! :) <3
