    A Little More Rest

    Hi guys, I’m just dropping in to say that I’m extending my break by another week. I know this is why others won’t put dates on their breaks and that it’s just extremely annoying to have me writing like this, but I like having a set date. Maybe it’s dumb – it’s not like anyone is going to hold me to it, but it’s my preference. So far, I’ve only managed to write one chapter and as I mentioned I want a bit more of a buffer before then. I know I was planning to take another week off, but I can already tell that if next week is going…

    Taking a Rest

    So I’ve been keeping to a strict once-a-week schedule for gen 2 so far and I’m overall enjoying it. So far, I think gen 2 is way better than the first and I’m enjoying writing it and hearing your speculations and commentary. Up until now, I’ve been ahead with my chapters as you guys might have seen on my chapter listing. I like that. But as you can guess from my wording just now, I’ve been ahead until now. I’m not anymore. The next chapter isn’t written. I know the title of it (it’s in the chapter list, after all), but besides that, I don’t have any photos I’m happy…

    My Name Is Louise and I Am Spam

    Hi guys, just a quick note that I end up in spam filtres right now. Like, most of them. I noticed this because my comment didn’t appear on Amy’s new chapter. This is sad. If you guys see me liking something and not commenting, chances are great I’m hanging out in your spam folder* where it is dark and cold and I can’t see. Please, help me out of there. Anyway, thanks in advance for helping me out. Where I can, I’ll contact you guys by other means (contact pages and so on), but for a lot of you I don’t have that option. Cheers! ~Louise (And yes, this post is pretty…

    Random | Problem Should Be Fixed

    As you may well know, I’ve had my share of commenting issues. For a little while, it’s not been possible to post comments directly to the blog and I’ve basically been a channel for communications between Automattic and my webhost. My webhost then ignored me for a week and… yeah. It’s a mess. Buuuuut, it’s been solved now! Once the webhost did theirs and boyfriend found a setting that shouldn’t have been enabled, it seems to be working. I’d love it if you guys would try commenting from the blog. You should be able to log in with your WP accounts and comment. And hopefully you shouldn’t be able to…

    Random | Moving Blogs

    Hi guys! Sooo, well, I’ve moved! Since my plan for NotJustaBookSims.com runs out at the end of August, I thought there was no time like the present to move things over to my own domain. If you’re reading this in your reader, it means I haven’t bungled it. If you’re not… dear god how did you find me? Hoooow?? Anyway, it was just time. I save a little money on having a domain of my own, and on top of everything I can install plugins and code it up to my heart’s content. One small change does affect you, if you link to my site. My blog will no longer be known…

    5 Years of SimLit

    Hi guyssss! Today, I’m bringing you a bit of a special post. See, bloggiversaries have little meaning to my blog. I think I’ve had this particular one for three or four years, but I’ve used it inconsistently. It only recently started to hold any kind of particular meaning to me. However, one thing that does have a special meaning to me is SimLit and it just so happens that tomorrow it’s been exactly five years since i began posting SimLit. You can call this my SimLitaversary or… something. Though probably not because that sounds dumb.

    Taggy Stuff(-ish) | Genderbend Challenge

    Edited to add Amy’s awesome logo! This challenge is like a thing now with tags and everything. Check it out! As you might already know, people are bending the genders of their characters, and I want in! Fair warning, though – I’m about to show you something that may turn your stomach. Namely, Carlo as a woman. It’s horrible. It’s an abomination. So, now that you’re properly warned, let’s hop to it! Let’s get the not-so-great out of the way first with the AMVS mains…

    It’s that time again where I got tagged. This time I’ve been tagged by lovely Rosemary whose blog Booomcha is just a delight. She’s a great writer and one of the kindest people in the Sims community. I’m happy she thought of me for this.
