7 Tips to Improve Your Writing

 

“Showing and Telling”. Often in writing, we know when a character is angry or sad. You can write: Sarah was upset.

Okay, great, she’s upset, but is there a better way to show us that she was upset? Did she bang her fist on the table or clinch it? Was her face distorted? What were her movements? Did she run away, slam the door, and storm out the room? These are all things we as authors want to show our audience. I know for the Sims, we can see visually, but don’t rely on pictures only to tell your story. Write as if this was a traditional novel, without any pictures.

FYI For Using Mods

Just an FYI for using Mods. When you download mods, ALWAYS read the creator notes for information that may conflict with other mods, resources used that could conflict, etc. The Mod Conflict app will not tell you what mods are conflicting in your game. Therefore it is best to know exactly what you are downloading and what you already have in your game. Mods that change/enhance gameplay can be a lot of fun, but they are powerful tools and if you choose to use them, take precautions and know what you’re doing. Also deleting Last Exceptions (LE) won’t make your problem go away.  Happy Simming.
