This is the three-month anniversary of my legacy story! That’s pretty cool, right?! So, a lot of stuff has happened in just 3 months, we’ve gotten to generation three, for a start! Heheh, that sound like a generation per month, but that really isn’t the case. I really am getting into the story now, we have 29 chapters of Gen 3 and we don’t even have an heiress! So there’s a lot more to come! In comparison, Gen 1 didn’t even have 29 chapters, and in chapter 29 of Gen 2…our heiress, Adelaide was born!
I had all the way up to 3.13 written out when I decided to begin posting on a real site, instead of just having it on google docs! It was the best decision I’ve ever made. I love how I’m connected to so many other amazing simlit writers, and how I can get feedback on what I’m writing! I feel I’ve gotten way better at writing as the time went on. Nothing much happened in Gen 1, but now, there’s something happening all the time! And I have so much more planned heheh… Anyway, one of my main concerns was being able to make each heiress different enough! I hope I’ve been doing that! I started this legacy only a month after I got the Sims 4, and started this WordPress blog 2 months after that! I’ve gotten way better at taking pictures now (yay for tab key!) I used to play the sims freeplay but Sims 4 is way better! Everything is just so much better! I knew I wanted a matriarchy when I started because I’m a girl…and so it’s easier to get into my heiress’s minds!
It’s crazy how only 3 months ago, this wasn’t really part of my life at all, and now it’s a huge part of my life! And I love it! I love writing the story (and yet I hate Language Arts for some reason…it must be the essays…) and I love taking the pictures…and making the plot! Some of the pictures I take, I’m just like ‘Yes, I love this!’ Those are my favorites, the ones that turn out the best! 🙂 it can take forever to get pictures sometimes, especially when you’re dealing with more than one sim!
You guys are amazing! I don’t know if I’d have gotten this far without your comments and support for my story! Sometimes I still can’t believe other people are reading what I write! It’s crazy. I’ll just write down some interesting stats for my story right now.
I have 23 followers (thank you guys!)
I have 109 total posts 🙂
And 50012 total words…
There’s 506 pictures total, too!
I’m planning to get seasons very very soon and I’m super excited for how it can fit into the story! Snow, rain, thunder…seasons…ahhhh it’s so exciting! Ever since 3.21 I’ve been trying to write at least 1000 words per chapter and it’s been working out great so far! Even if my first draft doesn’t have that many words, I try to get it up there and it just ends up better, and with more details! The average number of pictures per post is now three, because the words are telling the story now more than the pictures. Yay! So if there’s anything you guys wanted to say, tell me in the comments! Cheers to another 3 months! 😄
