It’s week 4 of the Worldbuilding Summer Camp 2022 homework club, and we’re talking about the logistics of success! To recap:
- In week 1, we set our goals for Summer Camp 2022
- In week 2, we decided how the themes would help us achieve those goals
- In week 3, we talked about inspiration, playlists, and mini-metas!
- This week, we’re talking about planning to achieve our goals!
Preparing yourself to write towards your goals
It’s the last week before Summer Camp begins, so it’s time to get your last-minute prep done! Think about when and where you’ll write, and make sure these times and spaces are ready for your creativity:
- If your life schedule allows, set regular writing times and set them up in your calendar so you don’t miss them. If you don’t have time for regular time sprints, think ahead and plan your writing sessions.
- Will you write at your desk? On the couch? Make sure your writing space is neat and tidy to avoid getting distracted!
- Organize your world. Is your world meta complete? Do you need to improve the category tree of the world? A well-organized world will help you easily reference your worldbuilding while writing!
- If you need a special coffee or tea when you write, now’s the time to bulk buy it! If you always write with a playlist (and you didn’t make it last week) make sure it’s ready and downloaded on your phone.
How Writing Communities help you succeed!
Writer’s Block and Impostor Syndrome are realities we all deal with—which is why finding a writing community for your current project is so important! Fortunately for you, for Summer Camp our amazing community comes together to support each other and share tips and inspiration!
During the entire month, we’ll go live on Sundays on our Twitch channel with a virtual write-in, where you’ll be able to get inspiration with the rest of the community and take part in live writing sprints! You can join the stream every Sunday at 7pm UK time/11am Pacific time.
We also have a writing sprints channel on our Discord server, so you can organize and join writing sprints all day long! Simply join our Discord server, make sure your Discord and World Anvil accounts are synced (you can do that from your account settings on World Anvil), and you’ll see a #word-sprints channel under the Ongoing Events category!
Summer Camp 2022 Homework Assignment 4
At this point, if you’ve been following along with the homework, you should have
- a goal for your Summer Camp
- an idea of how the themes fit into your plan
- a mini-meta to inspire you for what you’re planning to create
Now, it’s time to plan for success!
- Make a date with yourself: whether it’s a regular daily slot, or you’re carving out a couple of writing sessions a week, make a date with yourself to sit down and complete the prompts. You’re more likely to succeed if you plan that if you leave it to chance! Make a note of these sessions in your diary and your Summer Camp pledge.
- Support: Summer Camp is a marathon and you’ll need support, people to chat with for inspiration, and even just other worldbuilders to cheerlead you on! Whether it’s the Facebook Group, the summercamp-2022 channel on the Discord or the Reddit, get some accountability by sharing your project and meeting some like-minded Summer Campers! Add your chosen community to your Summer Camp pledge, then go and share your Summer Camp goals there for accountability!
- Submit your Summer Camp pledge article in the comments of this blog one final time to submit your homework!

Alright, last week of prep! Very honored to have had my pledge as a featured article this week, and really looking forward to my first summercamp with y’all. 🙂
…okay, it’s not completely done, but I wanted to add pictures and they’re being hoopty. Here’s the homework for the week though!
Oh Look, I used the wrong kind of link. whoops.
Hooray! Let’s go!

Final version of my pledge!
And now with the actual pledge link.
This one took some real thought. I always want to ‘do it all’ and it’s not possible, especially this month.
My week 4 pledge! https://www.worldanvil.com/w/necumia-thedoctor292/a/doctorE28099s-pledge-article?preview=true?
Last homework is done! Good luck to everyone participating this year!! https://www.worldanvil.com/w/treasure-box-tris/a/summer-camp-pledge-2022-article?preview=true
Final homework done! If there are any summer campers writing in the Australian morning and evening timezones… let ‘s try and find each other on Discord 🙂
Definitely – Sydneysider here, often writing in the evening, although I do tend to dip into Discord completely randomly and infrequently (otherwise I’d spend half my evening chatting!). My Discord handle is the same as my WA username, unless it’s reverted to ShadowFalcon. BTW, don’t forget to post the link to your homework here, too…
Oh, and I just noticed – the URL link you posted is to the generic World Anvil dashboard URL – anyone who clicks on it will go to their own dashboard! You need to remember to paste the URL for your world, which you see when you click ‘View World’. 😉
And done! https://www.worldanvil.com/w/the-kaleidoscope-system-kaleidechse/a/summer-camp-2022-article
And here’s the final homework completed, with several days still to go until Summer Camp starts: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/sundered-lands-scholarmage/a/summer-camp-2022-pledge-article

SUmmercamp, 2022… I AM READY FOR YOU!!! Fourth and final homework: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/world-of-cartyrion/a/summercamp-2022-preparation-article
Here’s homework 4
It’s only a few days away. Let see how we do it!
It’s done! 😀 I had some technical problems with the spotify links, but I corrected them already… https://www.worldanvil.com/w/evera-liafelis/a/summer-camp-2022-article?preview=true
” Make a note of these sessions in your diary and your Summer Camp pledge. ”
Is there a diary feature within World Anvil? Or does this mean the Notebook feature? Or, just a personal diary?
Curious if there’s a feature i’m not aware of.
It means whatever system you use to organize your time!
Last homework done. Three days left!
Talk about last minute homework, haha. https://www.worldanvil.com/w/sky-pirates-cytheron/a/summer-camp-pledge-2022-article?preview=true
Here’s the pledge, done and dusted.
Here’s week 4: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/overlord-lady-grayish/a/summer-camp-pledge-2022-article?preview=true
My schedule is a little vague since it will be a, “when I have time,” on some days. But there is some sort of loose plan.
I don’t think it’s letting me post when I log in with Twitter…. This is my latest update:
It just takes manual approval when you post for the first time (this was probably the first time you posted). Just approved comments with your other account, so you should be good to go for next time!
I’m not gonna let this year be the year I don’t submit any homework 😀
Here is my Summer Camp 2022 Pledge Document! I’m looking forward to this year’s SC!
Good luck everyone!
Finally ready to start! Can’t wait.
Just in time, again!
Have fun, all!
This is the complete(ish) Pledge document for me.
I was late with this one too, but I finally did it. Starting to feel a little like normal again, after a couple of really hard weeks on the home and work fronts.
My newly expanded and reformatted pledge for week four. Enjoy.
All homework is complete!
Finally added week 4’s homework! Let’s go! https://www.worldanvil.com/w/valayo-hcraven/a/summer-camp-2022-article
Finished the homework! https://www.worldanvil.com/w/breafir-gasog/a/summer-camp-2022-pledge21-article
OK! Right under the wire I feel. But I’m ready to go! https://www.worldanvil.com/w/amalgama-holyflpncows/a/summer-camp-pledge-2022-article
https://www.worldanvil.com/w/5Bitsaso5D-lilseasalt/a/summer-camp-pledge-article?preview=true? gosh mine is ugly compared to veterans of this site, but i do just humbly want to make a world so it’s ok
Hi! Make sure you publish the article, right now it’s a draft so no one can see it other than you!
So ready for SummerCamp at last! 😀
Making a plan was SUCH a good idea! Thanks for the amazing assignments. 😀
Better late than never, right? I think I got a little stuck since I had already added strategies for my success and wasn’t sure how much I could add.
Made it right before the opening Stream. 😉
Okay last late homework assignment. Let the games begin!
