Summer Camp 2021 Pledge

I pledge to complete at least 10 prompts, though I hope to complete all 31.

Preparing for Summer Camp 2021

In preparation for Summer Camp, I am:
  • Cleaning up tags and categories
  • Organizing pics & gathering new ones that might be useful
  • Sorting through my stubs and ToDo list
  • Listing my still to-be-written articles in case a prompt fits one
  • Editing old articles as time permits

Reflecting on Summer Camp 2020

Summer Camp 2020 was my first time participating in Summer Camp on World Anvil. I surprised myself by completing all the prompts, but definitely felt anxiety over some of them, which I will try to avoid this year.
In addition, I pledge to:
  • Take lots of breaks! - especially when feeling overwhelmed, unproductive, or experiencing eye strain
  • Write first, format later
  • Be okay with shorter articles that can be expanded later as needed
  • Strive to work on fiction-writing before working on prompts
  • Not compare myself to others - this one will be hard, but I will try
  • Not feel obligated to read every notification
  • Not beat myself up if I do not finish all 31 prompts
  • Not obsess over likes

Summer Camp Prep Questions

Which projects are your worldbuilding efforts tied to?

This world is the setting for a novel I've been working on for quite some time now, Mage Rising. My first draft currently sits (incomplete) at ~80k words, and my second draft, which is almost a total rewrite, is currently at ~10k words.   This is to be the start of a fantasy series and this world will hopefully, eventually, serve as the setting to many stories.  

What world are you working on?

My only world at this time, Valayo  

Which area of the world(s) are you working on?

Summer Camp 2021 articles will all be located in Wennovi, the western continent of Valayo, and/or Mantalos.

Wennovi by hcraven using Azgaar's
Wennovi is a land divided by a magical barrier, the Great Divide, into two vastly different subcontinents: Paltetia, a land that knows no magic, and Imbria, a land where magic level determines socioeconomic status and political power.   One primary source of conflict in Imbria are the cultural beliefs and differing practices of magic amongst the various countries.   Magic throughout the lands   Mantalos is an island-nation that finds itself pulled into the political and social drama of Imbria through its participation in the Magic Freedom Coalition.  
A world of Magic

How much are you aiming to complete?

I would like to complete all 31 prompts, however, I also need to get back into novel-writing, so I will be happy if I complete 10 prompts  

When will you write?

Any chance I get, though unfortunately, I tend to be most productive late at night  

Who is your support network?

I love your in addition pledge, those are great things to keep in mind during July. I also love that you, like me, aim for ten prompts but hope to finish all of them. Achievable goals are so important. Good luck with Summer Camp!

Good luck with the summer camp goals! And seems an interesting area where you will be working on :) Is the great divide then in the great woods discussed in your costume article?

Good luck to you too!   And yes. The Great Woods kind of buffer the Great Divide from the people, and they are both badly in need of new names :)
