Do you have a Sim (or two) who would like to share thoughts, ideas, and stories through correspondence with another Sim? If so, then the Pen Pal Project might be just for you!
What is this?
This is a collaborative project in which Sims write each other letters. The letters are posted on your blog (or, your forum thread, if needed).
How does it work?
Partner up with a Simmer or two (or more). Have your Sims write each other letters. You and your partner(s) can decide the parameters, such as aging on or off, frequency of updates, and so on.
What version of the Sims do I need to use?
You can use any version! We welcome all Sims storytellers.
Does this have to tie in with other stories I'm writing?
Not necessarily, but it can, if you'd like it to! This is a very flexible collaboration. If you've got a Sim in a current story, and you'd like to add the dimension of corresponding to other Sims, then that can work! If you'd like to create a Sim just for this project, that can work, too!
What if I sign up but then find out that I need to drop out?
We can work with that! Just like in real life, pen pals sometimes get busy and need to stop their writing. It happens. If you need to drop out, just let your partners know, and then they can find someone to take the new openings.
OK! I'm in! How do I participate?
Just let me know here in this thread! If you've found a partner on your own, let me know, and I'll add you to the directory. If you'd like to find a partner, then post here describing what type of pen pal you're interested in!
