It’s time for another flash challenge! This time it’s another tradition/ritual template. What do people do when they go out in your world? Pick a culture in your world and tell us what they do outside of their own houses for their leisure time. If you have already filled out the Advent prompt 2020 for a “leisure building” or the Summer Camp 2021 prompt for a pleasure settlement you can connect these articles if you want to.
It’s not a man’s working hours that is important, it is how he spends his leisure time.
Do the people of your culture enjoy some kind of a sport? Horse or People racing? Do they go to a specific building to enjoy their time off from work or school? What do they do there and is there a special age range? Which people enjoy their free time together? Do they watch a movie or go to the theater? Some other kind of entertainment where they just sit and enjoy or do they participate with their own body? How often do they enjoy this leisure time? Once a week, every day, or something in between?
As a youth, I spent three nights a week at a martial arts center and several other people on different walks of their lives did as well. A lot of youths visit the skating park in my city every night. A lot of adults go out to drink at their favorite joint two times a week. What do the people of your world do?
Leisure is the time for doing something useful. This leisure the diligent person will obtain the lazy one never.
– First, you need a World Anvil account.
– One article per account and only one person per account.
– Minimum of 300 words and a maximum of 1500 words.
– The article needs to be public.
– Submit the article before the 25th of August, at 12:01AM GMT (the site time, look at the bottom of almost all pages of WorldAnvil.)
– Go to this prompt page and create your article.
-You can also post the link to your article as a reply to this blog post, but for it to count you have to link it by creating the article from the prompt page.
I’d rather spend my leisure time doing what some people call my work and I call my fun.
-The largest prize is the pride in having finished another article for your world. It has grown by one article.
-Fun with friends, if you haven’t joined the discord do so and join in on the fun on the #challenge-discussion channel. (#sync-your-roles to see it) You can find a link to the discord at the top right corner after clicking the circle with a question mark on all the WA pages.
-Janet and Dimitris will show off some of the entries on a stream over at the WorldAnvil Twitch channel when there is time.
-Some articles might even be featured on the site over on your dashboard.
The real problem of leisure time is how to keep others from using yours.

Sometimes you go “okay, I must admit this article isn’t as interesting as it could be, but it’s rather significant to be honest”. This was one of them, as I have several clubbing scenes planned for this story. https://www.worldanvil.com/w/lance-breaker-michael-chandra/a/clubbing
