Naelin's Worldember 2023 Pledge
The Month of Burining is Coming
the Winter Teal'Jin's horns can already be seen in the forest.
Every year he inspires us to do our best during the month of Burning with his burning passion and his cold breeze.
Every year we shall strive to inspire him to keep coming back the next one with our hard work and our sustained effort."
WE Prep Week 1: So, what are the plans?
"Look at your world and choose an area you want to write about. Keep in mind the area doesn’t have to be a geographical one!
What are you excited about? Make a list of directions you could go in. Take a moment to review any related articles."
SummerCamp 2020 I created the Weavers' Network, to this day one of my favourite organisations in SoP.
Have you clicked the link? no? Well, good, because that poor neglected article is still in Spanish. Going back to the Weavers and expanding their web of articles is a pending task of mine, one I started in Spooktober 2023 by translating the articles about the associated profession and one character that is definitely not an agent of the network. But there is so much more to say about them!
The Weavers cast their net wide, so here are some potential related topics to write about:
Dhalmanite, Autonomism. Back when I started thinking about this concept, the idea was to create a religion without gods that placed spiritualism on their knowledge of the world and managed to still have a sort of pantheon.
WE Prep Week 2: The Mini-meta
What I devised was a system where people venerated the rules that manage the universe itself and the abstract concepts that make their understanding of it, such as the dimensions, the time and space, the chemistry, the physics, etc.
Then I made a genesis story, put custom names to the main "laws of the universe", then eventually added some characterisations and implied personality traits and--- ah, damn, I have made gods. I am not so strict about that impossible goal anymore, and I've had a lot of fun and pride with some of the stories and topics I wrote about the people who follow each of the temples dedicated to the members of the pantheon.
However, up until very recently, most of these members didn't even have names! Now at least each has a name, set of pronouns, and a short list of professions they are the patrons of, so I am ready to start actually talking about them and give some extra life to one of the two first islands I developed in the archipelago.
I will be skipping this week's homework, as I quite like my current layout. However, feel free to give me feedback if you think something on my homepage can be improved.

Worldbuilding Planner for this WE with my goal, writing speed, and some inspirational phrases.
WE Prep Week 4: Last Minute Prep
The last several times it helped me immensely to stay motivated and keep track of how close I am to my daily target (and what is that daily target). This year seems like it will be quite harder due to some family issues, so I appointed 10 free days instead of the 2 I planned for last year, which gets me to a starting daily goal of 1087 words per day. Hopefully, these blocked-out days will just be bonus writing days instead!
