I didn't mean to drop off the face of the planet there. I did it just about everywhere. I haven't felt very much like being friendly, which is one of those things I can't really avoid what with having to work and needing to support the family.
In June, I lost my oldest sister. It's been very hard to realize that she is no longer around anymore. My family has needed me, and so I've been spending extra time with them and when I was on my own I've been escaping in video games. Not sims though, Elder Scrolls.
This doesn't mean I'm done with Sims, but I haven't actually played Sims 3 like a real game ever. I've only really ever used it for screen shots because I really do like the look of the sims over Sims 2. (I know, crazy.) So I do actually use Sims 3 as a writing tool to bring characters to life from time to time. It's a fun tool for that, and easy to use to boot.
But I am on a break still while I try to balance everything out. I haven't even written for a few months. Today marks the first day I've actually sat down to just write because I had a character voice too loud to ignore. If I hadn't gotten up and started writing, she would have carried on without me and I don't trust my own memory. I guess that particular story is tired of waiting!
So, I'm sorry that I don't have an update and that I've been awol. I don't know when I can expect to be back to anything that resembles normal.
