Lately, my days have been non-stop writing a novel, and I am in great need of some me- time. Sometimes a simple bubble bath is all I need, but there are other days that I would like to just sleep in and watch Netflix. If I gave in to those urges I wouldn’t make any progress with my writing. That is where the Sims come in.
I’m not sure if I have mentioned this before, but I love Sims. It’s my favorite game (besides Stardew Valley and Slime Rancher), and I could spend an entire month just playing it. I allow myself about an hour each day (on weekdays) to indulge in this video game addiction of mine, and now I have figured out a way to incorporate some writing practice with it.
If you are already familiar with the Sims, then you know that things can get pretty weird. So, I figured why not write an ongoing story that revolves around what I do in Sims? It may turn out to be hilarious, or it just may be cringe-inducing. Either way, I would like to share this journey with you by posting the chapters on this website. The story will probably be more inspired by what happens rather than having the story be word-for-word what happens.
I’m hoping for one chapter each week because one week of gameplay (which will be about five hours) can produce a lot of inspiring content. I’ll start posting those chapters on Fridays at 2:00 pm CT, starting on October 12th.
