    I have written then next chapter! It is 5 and a half pages long, and I'm pretty happy with it. I need to read it over again, and then I have to take screenies, but I think it should be out by next weekend for sure.

    I'm trying to figure out who I am now, and where I spend my time. Way too much on youtube :sweat_smile:, that's for sure. Also too much on Minecraft. I want to spend more time on my creative hobbies, writing, crafting, that sort of thing. It's just taking more time to balance myself out than I thought it would.

    I hope everyone is doing well, and that only good things come your way.

    Chapter 15
    Yikes, Deliah sure is a piece of work :grimace:

    Looks like Gloria has herself an impromptu watch party :joy:

    We have a bunch of daddies in the house :0

    Hey, no problem. I was wondering if Deliah's jealous trait would come into play somewhere. :joy: And it's good to hear you got your favorite custom eyes back :)

    Ooh, it looks like you got the wedding pack. I heard it was very glitchy, but at least the world, CAS, and BB look nice

    Horay for a new chapter
    So much face palming shenanigans that both Gloria & Seneca had to deal with. Deliah was sure scary with her wrath.
    "And people die when they are killed,"

    This line got me laughing way more than it should've.

    Hey guys!

    Sorry about the lack of an update and new chapter, I hit a snag in writing and need to push past it. I'll just blame it on my brain 😅.

    I don't think the image actually links to Chapter 16, but I was able to access it by modifying the URL of Chapter 15

    Chapter 16
    Oh, Aquila. Just had to make things awkward

    Yeah, I'd be annoyed too if I were Seneca

    Looks like Gloria smoothed things out. And a talking book! What a hoot

    Aww, that family Easter photo is cute

    I just want you all to know that I think of Ashton as having Ewan McGregor's voice, so you know what I mean when he has an accent.

    I'm working on the next chapter.

    You should! Ewan was great in it. Nicole Kidman was fantastic too

    I watched Moulin Rouge, and what a ride! And I haven't seen a movie scream early 2000s in a very long while. The music gets into your ear though. And a young Ewan McGregor is nice too :wink:

    Oh yeah, they intentionally covered existing modern songs to make them feel familiar to the audience, while making them seem avant-garde within the movie's 1899 setting. And yeah, it has that early 2000s touch 😄

    I know it's not a new shinny chapter, but I'm working on moving the old A heart Full Of Stars Chapters over to a blogger as well, and I'll post a link when I have a good number of them.

    I have the first 9 chapters moved over, in case anyone wants to read them. https://aheartfullofstarschapters.blogspot.com/

    Rereading the story is better than I thought it would be. I get to ground myself in the characters and the old history of the original characters, I get to remember how to write a bad guy with grimy persuasions. I've been feeling like my current characters are undersaturated, and those characters are so vivid. It feels... like I'm finding something I didn't know I was missing. Like I can see where I was and I can see better where I I'm going. And to not linger so gosh darn long on things :lol:!

    The new chapter has been written and read over, time to take screenies! That should happen in the next few days.

    If any mothers are readers of mine, Happy Mothers' day! I would have taken a nice holiday picture, but I was busy today and didn't have the chance. So well wishes to you today and everyday!

    Life is messy and I got a new car! It's been the forefront of my mind lately with getting it set up, registered, insured, checked out, all of that, so I don't have any screenies yet. I apologize.

    I've been looking into getting a car too because I moved to a very car-centric city. Prices are crazy now because of shortages. I hope you're happy with your new car :)

    New chapter hitting the pavement! Hitting the ground running! Hitting the chicken at 3,725.95 mph! What ever this chapter is doing, it's hitting!

    (No sims or characters were hurt in the creation of this chapter.) (Actually, I just remembered that isn't true)

    Chapter 17
    Deliah is persistent; I'll give her that.

    Ooh, camping trip. Too bad for Maria though

    Oh hey, Midshore's coming anyway

    RIP Deliah

    It's kind of annoying how nosy Deliah and Velma are. Seneca's life must be so annoying with all these weirdos

    The last six months or so:
    Both Gloria and Seneca have a lot of trouble on their plates. I'm glad Gloria didn't actually cheat on Seneca, Alec is handsome enough but it would ruin what they have together. It was surprising to me that he had a child. It seems like a lot of the characters have children. Hopefully they can stay friends. I like how Nora is acting like a good mentor/therapist for Seneca. Although I guess being close to a professor is rare, but why does everyone assume the worst of Nora? She's not thaaat creepy. I feel bad for Deliah, but going after a guy in a committed relationship is still a jerky move on her part, even if she is young. Hopefully things work out and Gloria and Senaca stay together, even though pretty much everyone want them to be apart.

    Where does the time go? I have this in my mind constantly, but still haven't taken screenshots... I'm really sorry it's not ready.
