New Story

I've started writing a new non-Sims story called 'How to Kill Yourself in 12 Easy Steps!' Bit of a mouthful, I know! It's really strange writing without the pictures to guide you, but I suppose it's all good practice.

The story is for adults only, and some people may be disturbed by some of the issues that will arise, but really it's not such a depressing story. Just a little black!

Why I hate computers

Well, I've been having computer troubles for a little while now, but everything really went pear shaped recently. The graphics are now so fuzzy they're distracting. That's why I haven't been here for a few days, pure frustration. I'm afraid I won't be able to take pictures any more until I get a new computer. I'm sorry for messing people around, I know how frustrating it can be to invest in a story only to have it shelved away. But I will continue with My Perfect Life, I promise, as soon as I have my new computer. I might even get one for Christmas.

The main frustration for me has been the idea that I can't WRITE for a few months. I never realised how much I enjoy it until I suddenly couldn't. So I'm going to try writing a new story without pictures. I have no idea if anybody will read, and I don't really expect anyone to, I'm just writing for myself. It'll be strange not writing in script format, but good practice I suppose.

Again, I'm really sorry. But My Perfect Life will be back. Eventually.

And not so alone anymore...

Firstly, just to let you know that episode 2 of My Perfect Life is up and ready. Yata!

Secondly, I have been accepted as a member of SimTales! *insert cheer here*. I'm really proud to have been accepted, because I've seen the high quality of the stories at SimTales and I'm flattered to be counted among them. So thank you Leah!

Going it alone

Okay, so I got hit by the 'story rejected' virus, and if you write stories using the Sims you probably know what that means. So, here I am in my new place - very exciting - and looking forward to writing stories with no restrictions. Woohoo!

I've written two story series before, both to be found at TSR - 'The Beach' and 'MediEvil'. I'm really appreciative of all the wonderful feedback people left for me on those. *sniff* [wipes eye]

I'm a bit short in terms of concentration span, so I like writing different kinds of stories, from drama to fantasy. I also tend to write in script format. That's because I tend to 'see' my stories more like a film or a television program than a novel. I suppose I'm too much of a couch potato!

The main reason I decided to set up this account is 'My Perfect Life'. I put so much thought into planning it out, only to find there is no way on God's green earth TSR will accept it. So I'll post it here instead. I hope you'll enjoy reading it as and when I learn how to use this blogging site!

Bwye and thanks for reading!
