My Experience

Summer Camp 2023
Generic article | Dec 31, 2023

This was my first Summer Camp, and I only got 2 articles submitted. However, I’m pleased with the overall results and what I accomplished.

I managed to get my theme completed enough so that the site looks decent (which is an important motivator for me). I worked on the articles long enough to realize I needed to adjust my workflow — which I did, twice. I think the final version is more efficient and productive.
I scoped at a dozen articles that I will write this year. The prompts were very helpful — getting me to consider different types of articles that would fill out my world better.
What's Next, What's Done
Generic article | Dec 31, 2023
I liked having the prompt page. I found it motivating so I’ve created a status planning page for the rest of the year (and am copying the article blocks for the articles I scoped out to it).
And writing the two articles showed me how in depth I wanted them and got me to really think about key technologies, events, and other factors in my world — and write them down. (Some are still in notes, but I’ll write articles on those this year.)
I was inspired by many of the other articles I read. This got me to think about using quotes. I added quotes that tell a bit of a story to one article and included an excerpt from my WIP novel in the other.
Last and importantly, the social interaction and camaraderie in the Discord channel was great. I really enjoyed it. I talked with a lot of intriguing folks, learned a bunch of new things, and watched a lot interesting conversations. And — I found some neat folks and worlds to follow.

Worldbuilding Goals

Mostly, I want to complete the articles that I’ve already identified during Summer Camp. In addition, I want to:

  • Continue filling out the star system articles to use as reference materials for my (WIP) books.
  • Identify articles which will provide an introduction and cohesive overview of the world setting for my books.
  • Look into creating a star system map and a master timeline.
