News, Updates, Stuff, and Things

Hi! Just a quick update to say that I’ve done some tweaking to the site. Not a lot of noticeable stuff, but it was brought to my attention that the images on the Creeper Downloads page were broken, so I replaced those with simple text until I can get new images. Feel free to download some Creepers and finish my legacy for me! Haha.

Going through those links made me miss them so much :( I’m hoping to get my new computer in the next month or so, so we’ll see. It appears I may have accidentally lost Jermajesty, though… THE GENERATION 8 (or 7?) HEIR. So, I will have to do some searching for him and/or figure out a Plan B. This poor legacy has been through so much, but I’m determined to finish it. Fingers crossed!

Otherwise, I hope you’re at least somewhat enjoying my adventures in TS2. It’s been nice to have that game to play and get back in the swing of writing updates again.

I hope you’re all doing well! I’ve been lurking on some of your stories and I’m enjoying seeing pretty TS3 images again. You’re all so brilliant. Thank you for sticking around!

Pleasantview: Dreamer House

 

Alternate title for this chapter: Vomit.

Lilith and Dirk went on vacation shortly after being married. They’d wanted to wait to have kids (although they’d both rolled the want for a baby), to travel a bit and save money, but everything FAILED. Lilith came down with food poisoning a few hours into their island getaway, and her birth control seemed to fail (maybe it doesn’t work in vacation worlds?), which made her completely miserable and near death. They had to cut their trip short.

A Very Non-Sims Update

Three posts in a year? Wow, I’m on a roll.

In case you couldn’t tell by the title, this post has nothing to do with the sims and more to do with my real life (I know, it’s really weird). There’s also a shameless dash of self-promotion, so if this sort of update isn’t your cup of tea, I apologize, but I hope you join me another time!

So, in November of last year, one of my best friends (and fellow simmer), andiewinslife, came to me like, “Yo, Starla. There’s this thing you should do, ok?” and I said, “Sure, ok.” So I did it. The result is this:

Fifty Shades of You!

This is a book that I wrote. It is a Fifty Shades of Grey parody that is gender-swapped and available for personalization! Exciting! If you click on it, it will take you to the website where it’s featured (amongst many other, probably much better books, some written by andiewinslife as well). You can create a free personalized preview and it’s fun for the whole family! …Except, um, it’s smutty, so maybe not the WHOLE family.

Anyway, I’m not trying to be completely like LOOK WHAT I DID OK BUY IT, but I did want to share this with you, mostly because you all have been so supportive over the years and I feel like telling you these things about my life (and I want to hear things about yours, too, ALRIGHT? I know I said, like, “This is a book that I wrote,” but it was so much more than that, and not at all simple for me. I learned so much in the process, not only about the writing/editing process, but about myself. I mean, I’d never written anything this big before. I’d never finished NaNo. I’d never even put more than maybe 5,000 words together on one project. Hell, I can’t even finish a ten generation sims legacy in less than, what has it been, a decade?

This was a little over 45,000 words with a pretty demanding deadline so I pretty much wrote it in a month. So… idk, I’m kind of proud of myself. I mean, it’s no Harry Potter by FAR, never, and it’s not like I’m going to be rich and famous and go on a book tour or anything, but it’s a thing I did that I never imagined I was capable of doing. It just goes to show that we are ALL capable of whatever the hell we want to do. GOT IT? Now go follow your dreams!

ILU all, sims update soon! <3
