I haven't really gone anywhere, really I haven't. I really appreciate that someone might have been concerned, but I had no idea that my pics were gone, and I wish the poster would have PM'ed me instead. There is no big drama here. My site is down... In the mess of the past month, I had let my hosting lapse, and that's all it is. I'm a bit embarassed, but I will take care of it soon and my pics will be back up before long.

I did post in my tumblr that things have settled down a bit. I'm still in transition mode and it will take me a little longer to be able to play with my sims again and come back to the community. I haven't been keeping up with other people's updates, and I'm really sorry about that but I will soon.

I'd like to have fun with my game and the community again. :). I hope that's still ok.

P.S. I really don't keep a personal journal anymore but you can keep up with my personal Twitter if you want to stalk me. ;)

For anyone who isn't on tumblr who might be interested, I plan on doing a Livestream on Tuesday night (about 8 or 9EST and this is depending on whether I have to work in the evening or not). I'll have a proper mic so I won't sound like I'm talking out of my armpit O_o), I'll have tunes and I'll have my game which I'll just be showing off a bit (probably just my neighbourhood and places in relation to my story)

I'll make further announcements on my Tumblr or Twitter.

Check out my Channel for past recorded videos: simtopi livestream

And do bookmark,follow, add to your RSS feed or whatever this tumblr if you're interested in seeing other livesimmers livesimming.tumblr.com.

P.S. If anyone has any suggestions for me I'm very open to them. ^_^

Greetings!

As usual, I've been busy and have been living my online life through mobile devices lately. I haven't really had a lot of time to sit in front of my PC and when I do I have to get business stuff done. I've been still writing notes for the next few chapters and actually seriously thinking of having the next chapter to the end completely written before I start shooting the scenes. I'll see how this works out for me. The obvious disadvantage is that it might take a while to write, but I guess once that's done, the chapters should be updated faster. We'll see, I'm just thinking out loud at this point.

Point form, some good, some bad :p

If you've been a long time visitor to this story, you do know and understand how much fun I'm having with this. I know I tend to get a little carried away with the storyline, and maybe things that are obvious to me, aren't so obvious to others. For example, I really did think I gave away Clara's back story back in Chapter 39, but in feedback people still told me they were surprised.

I've been working on sorting out the end arc. Believe it or not, we're here! It will take a few more chapters yet, but I'm going to do my best to be careful with it and not miss a thing. I've been getting so much great feedback from everyone so far, I really do appreciate it. What I'd love to do now is make this a "guessing" post. I'd love to know where you think I'm taking the story. If there are any plot lines that confuse you. If there are any storylines or characters you think I should explore before the end.

I won't tell you whats going on here obviously, but I'll acknowledge it. I just feel like I've spent a lot of time on this and for me it really is a huge project, I just want to make sure I treat the ending well, that I don't rush things or make people confused. :)

Thank you for your help. Believe me, you will ALL get credit when I'm done.

ETA: Thank you all for your comments. It really does help give me a sense of what the readers are getting. So far, I don't think I'm missing too much.

I've been so busy and swamped with work and other things the past week or so. Good for me, because its good to work, but its also kind of stressful for all the social anxiety issues I've mentioned before. I'm getting way better at dealing with it... But I kind of have to force myself to shut off. If I think about it too much I start going nuts with anxiety. I still can't deal with that phone... :p

So its nice to come home and hang out in GSC, play Sims, work on my stories and try not to think too much about anything else except having fun. I need to do this or the stress will swallow me alive.

I did want to say thank you to whoever posted secret #5 in this week's sim secrets. The House of Fallen Trees is a fun lot to play around with and I love seeing other people's stories and makeovers of that lot. It really is creepy! I really think Maxis deserves more credit for getting things right. Just like Sims, with lots like the HoFT, I do believe the game designers made them as simple as possible to give players a jumping point for their own games. There is no wrong or right way to play a premade lot (or Sims).

I also want to thank everyone for commenting and just generally being cool! And to all storytellers, legacy or challenge writers and pic spam posters for giving me something to look at throughout the day while I'm waiting for stuff to come in. This community, particularly those on my Friends list, means a lot to me.

More rambling this way, which I gush on about things that matter... )

Just hanging out today spending time with the dude and trying my best not to worry too much about work and stuff.

Secrets! Thank you poster of #36 this week. It was very sweet. I'm afraid to tell you it will end, and I am getting close to the end story arc, but as I said in the comments, I hope it will be fun along the way. I will try my best.

And that's why I'm sitting here thinking about how to go about for chapter 45. This is where doing lots of pre-planning for your stories would come in so handy. I'm kind of at a loss of what I should do D:.

Anyway....

my gawd, look at all the teal deers... )

First of all, I've been meaning to thank whoever posted this secret last week. I am extremely honoured to be mentioned with [livejournal.com profile] genlisae and [livejournal.com profile] skellington7d. Thank you! and thanks to whoever posted #14 this week. I love stories and I like interacting so its always a pleasure to do it... And its really nothing compared to the enjoyment sim stories bring us. :) I appreciate the secret, thank you too! *Bows*

Now teh suck )

I couldn't sleep so I decided to finish up this meme instead ;)

This is a meme about pre-made sims. Although most questions ask about a pre-made (singular), feel free to list more than one. Elaborate on your answers (the constant 'and why?' after each question seemed redundant). Skip or replace any questions you don't find interesting.
