  • All of us are dealing with self-doubt in some form and I know I have had to struggle with low-self esteem my whole life so never feel badly. That was my point above. Most of what "activists" now focus on is finding ways they think people are being oppressed and by focusing on that you compound anxiety over things you have…
  • @AdamsEve1231 Thanks very much. I'll definitely be back once this is over. @NocturalDuet Thanks for the kind words. I'm definitely taking care of myself while I'm handling my caregiving as best I can. I'm lining up help of friends and family. Everyone here and in real life has been very supportive and I appreciate it.…
  • I probably won't be able to be consistent in the group because of them so freeing my space up would mean more activity for you is all I'm thinking.
  • @MedleyMisty You asked for an opinion on this paper and I absolutely do not agree with it nor do I find it accurate in my 40 years of life as someone who pretty much fits every label in the article accept being male having Aspergers. In fact, there are geniuses that posthumously have been diagnosed and not diagnosed with…
  • Hey guys. So my health has gotten worse and I'll be needing surgery. More details here. I'll be irregular in writing and being around while I get through this so I don't know if you want to replace me in the group.

  • Hi, guys. Sorry, it's been crazy plus I haven't been feeling well. I haven't been around enough to know who is still around. Here's a short update on my current situation: https://dreamingsimscom.wordpress.com/2017/01/06/update-1517/

  • @AdamsEve1231 She was a bare-Eyed Cockatoo I had since she was born in 1994. I miss her terribly. Between that and my caregiving stuff my head is spinning. I like you picture pics and will have to put mine up, too. I just want to comment/answer the posts as I can today between things first though so it might not be until…
  • Hi guys. Sorry I got quiet its just yesterday my bird got sick. I took her to the Vet and was with her for 3 hours. She got eggbound and they were unable to save her so I'm a little sad and lacking motivation to type questions.
  • I'll be working on answering questions over the next couple of days: Intriguing question. I suppose the way I keep it fresh is that I've read so many adaptations and things inspired by my favorite stories and because I have a strange mind that breaks apart everything and analyzes so I get an idea of what the more common…
  • Hi guys. I'll be answering and commenting tomorrow. I've had the unfortunate luck to been having to deal with long phone calls to SSI and the VA for my parents income and its sort of hijacked most of my spare time the last couple of weeks.
  • @AdamsEve1231 Okay well maybe focus on the rest of Gen 1 this time. I'll think of some discussion starting points and maybe ask for 1 question from each member to answer for myself then. * @AdamsEve1231 * @xJojox * @Simcraft81 * @WiggleyTuff * @Niemalyn97 * I'd like to kick off the discussion of my Wild Hearts Gen 1 asking…
  • @AdamsEve1231 How many chapters are we doing this time? Sorry since I've not been checking in so much I just wanted to know what in my sotry will we be discussing?
  • @AdamsEve1231 I will be around on and off this weekend. I'll post some questions tonight. Yes I have been busy but in December I will have a couple of slow weeks. :)
  • Hi guys. This has been the year for me for adjustment in caring for family needs so I havne't been as activ in discussions and such. I will be around for this discussion though. Today though is another doctor appointment so I won't be around today.
  • Hello, Due to game issues that led to the game crashing twice more. I just can't play with it anymore so I can't continue Quest for Immortality in the style I set it up in. So I'm going to provide a summary (more info is found here). Part 2 Summary: Part A

  • @AdamsEve1231 Sorry I wasn't around a lot to discuss Kass but I have talked in the other threads a bit about how much I like her story and your writing style. I haven't looked at your Gage spin-off yet but I do like how rich your world is for Kass. I personally don't see doing spin-offs if a character or story is fully…
  • @friendsfan367 There really aren't "rules" for writing but basic structural elements that have proven to make stories engaging. Literary Theory, Screen Play Writing, Creative Writing are basically studies of what has worked in the past and can help improve your writing by studying them. I've taken a ton of classes and…
  • Hi, all. Everyone in my house is feeling better so I'll be stopping in this week. I wanted to link this excellent video explaining Three Act Writing Structure which is the basic structure I use in my writing a lot.
  • @CathyTea It's funny you talk about writing action. I'd write more but I have a sick mother and father and soon sister to care for while I'm treating my severe asthma/allergy symptoms. Not fun. :( I had to learn to write action and fight scenes. I did so by sort of reading the authors I thought handled it in the way I…
  • Hi everyone and welcome @Eowyn I had to help my family a little more this weekend than expected so I wasn't around a lot but I will answer your comments and questions tomorrow. I'm a little sad that I'm having to reevaluate yet again if its possible to continue my Sims 3 stories since my game only wa stable for a month…
  • @Marialein @CathyTea Wow! I don't think I've ever had a story I haven't started writing yet get a recommendation! I'm very flattered! The only thing about Morrison Mansion Mayhem (the story title) is because of how busy I've been I decided to postpone releasing until December so I'm not sure you want to add it to a…
  • @AdamsEve1231 @xJojox @CreamierThanMami @Simcraft81 Hi everyone! I thought it might help encourage discussion of my story in the coming week if you had the themes I was developing in generation 1 of Wild Hearts and a bit of background. This story was built around the theme of transformation and inspired by the play…
  • @cathyTea @RipuAncestor I like that idea of a bimonthly focus, two weeks on a different writer, since that gives us a chance to concentrate our reading to that person's story at that time. It would allow discussion a lot easier.
  • @AdamsEve1231 @xJojox @CreamierThanMami @Simcraft81 I will open discussion up tonight. I'm sorry I wasn't able to participate before but I'll be around for questions and to talk about my opening and story in general on and off this weekend and next weekend. I will have a new chapter up next week for those caught up
  • Hi guys, Thought I'd stop in to say hello and just say I'm actually not behind in household/family issues for the first time in months (since my sister moved out here in February) and I'll be starting to work on my Simlit again this week. I think I should be able to balance things out and get a more regular release…
  • @CathyTea I'll be seeing Verdi's Macbeth with Placido Domingo. B)
  • Sorry I disappeared guys. Check this link for details. I'll be back around by Sunday or sometimes in the coming week. See you soon.
