As many of you know I wrote a short, Sims 3 Christmas story last year (rolling out chapters all throughout the month of December before Christmas day) and I would LOVE
to do that again this year. See Story here if you're interested
So I went online to look up some Christmas Writing Prompts to get a basic idea for a new Christmas story (because I was having a hard time coming up with my own idea.
I picked out 4 Prompts from a list of 30 that I liked and I want to see which ones you
as a reader would like to read about. I tried to pick ones that wouldn't be too difficult for me to set up in the Sims...
Ultimately it will be my decision which story I go with, but I was curious to see which story plot most people would be more interested in reading and that will be helpful in my decision.
So here's the 4 Prompts:Idea 1Two people who are secretly romantically interested in one another. They agree to share Christmas dinner together, just as friends, because a family holiday isn’t going to happen and all of their other friends are already busy.
^Naturally here we have the classic Christmas romance tale. I'll ALL about romance as many of you know.
So this was the first one that caught my attention. However, my last Christmas story was a romantic one so...I was thinking I could move on to one that's not? But hey, if this sounds like the best plot to you than vote away! Idea 2A Christmas card arrives in the mail fifty years after it was delivered.
^Ok, shouldn't it say 50 years after it was SENT? 🤷♀️ I dunno, my brain is a little fried at the moment.
This could make for a very interesting story. One where my imagination could go quite wild with it.
(The thought of using the Roaring Heights world comes to mind... 🤔)Idea 3Notes and gifts from a “Secret Santa” take a strange turn.
^This made me chuckle.
And I bet I could do it in an office setting. I've always wanted to do a Sims story like that (You know...like the TV show "The Office."
If any of you would like to throw out a specific "strange turn," throw out your idea in the comments below. Idea 4At the castle, Christmas is very different from what she’s used to.
^I'm thinking this is about a commoner who'd just become a Princess or a Queen? I could totally use the Praaven world to set this one up - in Medieval times.
Like she introduces her family traditions to the castle and they invite in some of the poor children in town for a big Christmas meal and hand out simple, little gifts to them that mean the world to them.
My imagination could really go wild with this one too!
Thanks for reading and happy voting!
