SummerCamp 2022 Pledge
I've gotten on top of setting goals for myself lately, and I just hope I can carry that with me through this year's SummerCamp. A successful run this year is a goal within a goal, within a goal!Is it really SummerCamp season already? That means it's time to kick things into gear! Before all that, though, let's reflect on last year's SummerCamp. I did a ton of prepwork last year, and went into the event brimming with hype! I had some wonderful goals, and I was so certain I'd be able to pull another flawless Diamond event. But! I'm sure I'm not alone when I say "life had other plans" last year, and I found it very difficult to work through the prompts in time. I even skipped all of WorldEmber 2021, and I've not done that once in the years I've been on WorldAnvil! But I'll give myself credit and cheer myself on for still managing Silver, despite my circumstances. Go me! That said, I'd like to take the goals I had set for myself last year, and adapt them to this year, hopefully now paired with some more stability, which might just let me pull through to that delightful Diamond badge!
Pinning My Goals & Motivation
Community InvolvementI adore participating in SummerCamp for all the opportunities it gives me to connect with other worldbuilders in different stages of their writing journeys. Sharing my work with others, hearing their thoughts, and knowing there are people out there who want to read about my world is so delightful!
I always struggled to meet new people, but I've been making moves here and there to remedy that. Last year I joined a chapter, Seven Tomes, and this year I'm attending my first SummerCamp meetup! New friends and new inspirations are huge motivators for me to keep writing.
The Creative ProcessLife is just so much better when I can make the time to create something new. Even if that something new is just me writing down years-old thoughts and publishing them as a brand-new article. Seeing my passions slowly building up over time in the form of articles and artwork makes me so eager to make more and more to fully flesh out this world I'm creating.
Creative GoalsMy current goal, which I plan to take with me into WorldEmber, is to close the gaps in my content where possible. I don't aim to render these gaps watertight, but bridge them enough to allow the flow of my world to not be cut off by missing information and floating articles lost to the aether! I hope to identify the biggest missing pieces, and fill in those gaps first, and let the small things follow.
Challenge GoalsMy hard-set goal for this year is Gold, but of course I will be shooting for Diamond! I'd be thrilled to complete every prompt this year. It all depends on how busy life gets for me, and if my freelance work picks up again! I hope to take this challenge seriously and work hard to the finish, while giving myself plenty of room to enjoy the process and have fun writing. No burnout for me, if I can help it!
Life's full of magic when you have goals within goals within goals!
My PledgeI pledge to make the most of this SummerCamp, and to give it my all! I will strive to create and bring my vision of Malkora to life piece by piece, without shaming myself if I fall behind. I pledge to always remember that any progress is a victory in a busy life!
