The Reading Challenge

I couldn't limit myself to just 3 per category (there were so many interesting titles!). They were fun to read, and I've noted some questions for myself to look at when I write new articles (someone remind me I have these questions, haha).  

Prompt: A method used to carry goods over long distances


What I've Learnt

I love reading the stories within these articles, that help to show the vehicles place in the world. Some questions for myself:
  • What is the vehicle used for?
  • What goods does it transport?
  • What people does it transport?
  • How dangerous is it?
  • Why is it necessary?
  • How do people in the world view driving this vehicle?

Prompt: An iconic building or landmark representing a location


What I've Learnt

Little things (as well as bigger things) can show the size, age & purpose of a location/building/city. For example, sme questions to ask myself:
  • What is known about it?
  • How do people react to it or use it?
  • What is the contrast between it and the environment around it?
  • Who uses it?
  • What myths or stories surround it?

Prompt: A destructive natural or supernatural event

What I've Learnt

Questions to ask myself:
  • Where is this phenominon located? (several places? localised?)
  • Who is affected by this?
  • What are the warning signs?
  • How frequent is it?
  • What is the cause?
  • Can the severity be manipulated?

Things I've Learnt Overall

I need to use tooltips. More than just linking articles, tooltips can give a very short 'who or what'. So this will be my main need to utilise over the next year. As my articles often bring in all sorts of things from other articles (e.g. artifacts, character names or their powers) which may make no sense when a single article is read - particularly SC articles as I write them from Mimi Lakes perspective and she has her own story going on in the background. So, basically help make the articles more reader-friendly (withouit stopping my fun!)
  Also: more diagrams (and things i said I'd look at / do in SC homework which I inevitably forgot about during SC).  


I'm getting excited to go and fix up my SC articles from this year! That's where I will start, then maybe play with some more CSS? Read a few more articles from others and keep excited for writing & worldbuilding!
