I’ve wanted to put together a Sims 4 story blog for some time now, but I’ve never really been able to make it work the way I wanted. I play my game rotationally with 15 different households and since I’m not a soap opera writer, I don’t know how to write that many stories all at once coherently and in a way that doesn’t make me want to tear my own hair out. So, this blog has been drifting along, with the occasional lookbook or post about how many sims had birthdays, but it wasn’t what I wanted. Then one night, inspiration struck: A news blog. I would write about the things that happened during my game and the families I’ve been playing for so long (I started this save file a year ago) as if I was reporting the news. That way I could tell a lot of different stories all at once without having to actually weave them together, because the news covers all sorts of subjects! My entertainer sims could be written about like they’re famous, my doctor sims could cover what’s going on in medicine, my detective could report on crime… I was so inspired I jumped out of bed at 1AM and went looking for the perfect theme and started organizing my categories. This is the new and improved San Myshuno Diaries.
While I’m playing, I take WAY TOO MANY screenshots and store them all on a separate hard drive organized by family. Keeping them all but not actually using them for anything doesn’t make sense so I’m really excited to finally put them into a story. I might even do profiles on individual sims so I can use the screenshots from a year ago to really tell that sim’s personal story.
I hope you enjoy the posts! And if you have any suggestions or just want to reach out and say hi, you can find my social media links along the bottom of the home page.
