My Summer Camp pledge 2022

What is your creative goal and your motivation?

Recently I have noticed, how writing in an already existing region, was limiting the option of what could I explore. I keep changing existing dates, terrains or events because they did not fit my stories. So I have decided to move away from Charmonde for good.   My new area is called Entrelai. Entrelai will be in somewhere in the beyond the beyond area. Potentially on the opposite side of the continent, as the area still will have access to the sea. I will keep all my own settlements and some of the original elements I added to the existing settlement, will be transferred to others settlements in Entrelai. I hope to have the transition finished by the time Summer Camp arrives, so I can focus on growing this area during it. My secondary focus will be a series of islands, to the left, which I want to create and explore to interact with Entrelai politics.  

What is your challenge goal?

This year, I will go for Gold (24 prompts). Silver won't be bad either if work schedules get in the way. I won't go for the diamond tier, because I will be away, for holidays from the 28 July. This also means I will probably miss all the panic streams, for the last few days...
This makes me sad.  


Expanse (Copper theme)

The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
— Clarke's 2 law
Entrelai has 3 different expanses to work with. The extensive and mostly inesplored jungle in the west. Several mountain landscapes and the praeries in the middle.
  • Forest
  • Serene cityscape
  • The forbidden city
  • The hidden areas of the Peninsula

Discovery (Gold Theme)

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
— Clarke's 3 law

Numenera as a setting is an aventure to rediscover what have been left behind and a race to undertand it before using it in any way that could be cause any high explosions.

  • The sea and the insland beyond
  • The mountains
  • The rivers and its routes

Leadership (Silver theme)

It's my estimation that every man ever got a statue made of him was one kind of sommbitch or another. Mal
  • Who are the councilmans? Which ones are real to the cause and which ones only want the power?
  • Who are the nobles?
  • What the difference between the guilds leaders in the 3 main stablished cities?
  • Who are the outsiders?

Writing Plan Schedule

My current plan is to write after work Monday to Friday. After some exercise and a shower, to refresh myself and allow for some screen resting time. This will probably put it around 6:30-7:00 pm.

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.
