    There are many of them: Legacy Challenge, Wonderchild, Apocalypse, etc. They are challenges that guide the story along and have rules and such that give the challenge structure.

    now i feel dumb. i heard of that some of my s3 friends do the apoclypse challenge. with my luckk my sim would die the first day. i should try one with colin though . it could be fun . when i made him it was for a traditional legacy. he didn't like the no house before money rule.everytime he had to use the bathroom he got angry.the funny thing about it was his future wife nyla actually parked herself on his lot and didn't leave so he married her.

    If you just write your story the way you write your updates here, it will be fantastic, funny, unique and original! You can think of it as like your comments here--only with pictures!

    i discovered pictures are harder . i wanted to post a picture of the first day of work. which my sim still hasn't actually done but it wouldn't go. don't worry you'll be less confused when i get it up.

    @Rorygilmore34 @friendsfan367 My heart is with both of you. I lost my grandmother last month too. Very suddenly. I was in wuite the creative slump for a while as a result. But isn't it great that we have the wonderful community? We're not alone in our losses. That's a comforting thought to me.

    Wonderful idea for a thread by the way @CathyTea I've seen some very promising new stories posted on here already. I foresee expanding my reading list very soon. :)

    @Carewren123 Hugging you right now and I'm also stuffing red velvet happiness cupcakes in your mouth... *awkward smile*

    Thanks to mine and @aroseinbloom's conversation yestrerday, I now know how to roughly start my story! However, I seem to have an obsession with picking 5 letter names for my characters and it bugs me xD

    @CathyTea I have a technical question...

    I would like to make a, "Meet the Characters" section on my wordpress. Originally I wanted a drop-down tab on the right hand side of the page and when clicked on, individual character names would pop up for people to click on and go read. (Much like an archives menu) But that proved too difficult. Which sucks because I wanted people to have quick access to the character descriptions instead of scrolling through a long page of characters.

    So now I have decided to make an individual page with the characters. (Not what I really wanted)

    My question is...

    I just made a post, "Meet Grace." How in the world do I put this post under the, "Meet the Characters" page? I have looked all over the place on the edit page of the post to see if it has a spot/checkbox that indicates where it should be posted.

    Like on your wordpress, you have multiple pages and one even titled, "Other Stories." How did you get those stories to post there?!

    I really hope this all made sense. Coffee never kicked in.

    Hi, lovey!

    Go to WP admin and then to Appearances. From there, go to the Menus section.

    You'll have to drag and drop pages there, but that's how you customize the tabs at the top! The ones you want directly listed on the top should be all the way over on the left. The ones you want to pop up (or really roll down) should be tabbed in once. So...use the page 'Meet the Characters' should have 'Meet Grace' just a big indented underneath it.

    I know it sounds a little confusing :( but it does work!

    The neat thing about WP is that you can just click on the pages you want to bring over to the menu section and then you can organize from there.

    Does that make sense?

    @CathyTea Well, smashing all of the buttons proved instrumental. I went to the, "Meet the Characters" page, found the edit botton at the bottom, and added the post there.

    But now this spurs a new question...

    Every time I want to add a new character, do I have to go to this edit spot again? It would be just one HUGE post if I keep adding more characters.

    So another thought...

    I was thinking of having a section on my wordpress giving credit to the downloads I use from the Gallery. There are some incredible builders out there and I really want to give credit when I take pictures and add them to my stories. What should this section be called? "Credit to Builders?" I have no clue. I want the credit section to have a picture of the item/building/Sim I used and the creators name. That way, they get credit for their hard work and if someone likes it, they can add it to their game.

    Thoughts?
