Hi everyone,

This is the sims blog which belongs to me. I’m known as NotJustaBook, Gnasling or just Louise around the simming world. I write stories in the sims 3 and I like reading them as well. I also do poses for the Sims 3.

Feel free to have a look around and drop me a comment. I love discussing writing and finding new stories to read.

        Louise here is very humble! She tends to think we’re only being nice by reading… She forgets that I’m not that nice lol if it was shite, I’d stop ;-D

        Anyway, my point (and yes, I did have one) is that you will be blown away by her writing and starving for more!!!

        Love you Louise/notjustabook

    Hi, I found my way here through your interview on Kym’s/Rosemary’s blog. I think I was going to catch up sometime and I never got to it, sorry! Now I’m here and I’m very eager and motivated to catch up. By the way, I do love your poses and they are super handy for storytelling!

    • notjustabook

      Thank you for being here! Nice to have you! And don’t feel too bad – I’ve meant to catch up to yours forever and didn’t get around to it. I might have read a few chapters…? Maybe? Anyway, I think yours is up next ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for reading! And I’m so glad you like the poses – there are just never enough poses for storytelling!

      • loladiamond01

        I agree, never enough! Really, you don’t have to bother with my story, though. I’m kinda ashamed, considering how good a writer you are with me not even being a native when it comes to the English language, oh goodness. Well, I’m glad I eventually came to catch up, because your writing is very addictive!

        • notjustabook

          Oh, please don’t worry – I love reading sims stories, it’s good fun! And I’m not a native English speaker myself, so that, also, is not a concern ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll read it whether you like it or not ^_^
          Thank you so much, though. It’s so nice to have people along for the ride!

          • loladiamond01

            I love, too. You’re not? Well, I’m amazed, I would’ve never guessed. You are very good with your writing, I admire it. In fact I admire all of the non-native speakers, because I know what kind of courage and struggle it takes.

          • notjustabook

            Nope, born and raised in Denmark ๐Ÿ™‚ Us Scandinavians just know we have to be good at English because nobody cares to learn our languages! Ha, ha ๐Ÿ˜€
            I admire it, too! It’s very daunting, especially if you’re not so strong with languages.

          • loladiamond01

            Poland here. Do you think anyone cares to learn Polish? Big, fat NOPE. I fell in love with English, though, which still doesn’t mean it’s always easy to get my thoughts out.

          • notjustabook

            Oh for sure not ๐Ÿ˜› Your English seems pretty good, though ๐Ÿ™‚
            One thing we also have going for us is the fact that movies aren’t dubbed, only animated movies and live action movies for little kids. So we hear English almost all the time because we just have subtitles ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hey, I don’t know if you can help me out, but how do you take pics with reShade activated? My screenshots came out just as usual, using the C-key…

    • NotJustaBook

      Of course! By default, itโ€™s mapped to the screenshot button on your keyboard. You can map it to C if you like. Because of the way ts3 works you have press f10 before taking pictures with ReShade or else it takes pics of the UI as well!
      Hope that helps <3 so exciting that youโ€™re using it!

  • freja64

    It still doesn’t work… Frustrating. When you say that I can map it to C, does it mean I have to do something special computer wise? I’ve tried F10, and taking pics as usual with C, but the picture comes out as usual, even though it’s blurred like it should in game… I’ll restart my laptop to see if it works. (I’ve already cleared the caches…)

    • NotJustaBook

      In the menu where you change the effects for ReShade there should also be a settings tab. In there, you can change what key takes the pictures. If you haven’t changed anything under settings, it’s probably still the prt scr (print screen) button. Have you tried taking a picture with that?
      It sounds a little weird for you, because in my game, ReShade completely disables the C-button.

      • freja64

        Yes, I’ve tried, and it pastes a black screen on my paint program… I’m using a pre-set reShade program downloaded from MTS. At first it didn’t work but the person who made it told me to disable edge smoothing and it worked. I will uninstall it an re-install and see if it does the trick… Thanks for helping me!

        • NotJustaBook

          It might be putting the screenshots into a folder under the ReShade folder. That’s what happens with mine – you can change what folder you want it to go in.
          If it doesn’t help, don’t hesitate to say ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hey, just wanted to tell you that apparently WP stopped being silly and it now changed your primary blog to this one, so it’s the one that readers are redirected to while clicking your name in the comments or seeing your in their likes. Good news! Maybe that’s what caused you to go into spam, though.

    • NotJustaBook

      I think you’re probably right! And because of my commenting issues, I had to edit my settings and stuff again, so that’s probably what happened! Thanks for telling me <3

        Hi Louise! I found your blog through the comment section of another blog and will be reading your stories. ๐Ÿ˜Š They sound wonderful, and I love that you are doing them with Sims 3. You donโ€™t see that too often anymore. Itโ€™s awesome that you also do poses for Sims 3. Iโ€™m always looking for new sets to add to my game.

        My stories are also done with Sims 3. Itโ€™s the game I started with and learned on, so it will always be my favorite and go to incarnation. As mentioned, I write stories, too and would love it if you came over to visit my blogs sometime. I donโ€™t know if posting the links here would get this comment kicked over to spam, but you should find them by clicking on my name. Let me know if you do need or want the links sometime. ๐Ÿ˜Š

        • NotJustaBook

          Hi there! Thank you for stopping by – Iโ€™m glad to have you. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you enjoy the stories.
          Sadly, the ts3 community this dwindling, but I donโ€™t really have a desire to move onto 4, so Iโ€™ll be sticking around in 3. I started way back with the first game, but ended up stuck on 3. ๐Ÿ™‚
          Iโ€™d love to come and check your stuff out! Iโ€™m currently super busy with irl projects as well as my generation 2 heirโ€™s wedding, but once all of that kerfuffle is handled, Iโ€™ll make sure to drop by. If I canโ€™t find your stuff through your name, Iโ€™ll look in the Sims Story group on FB. ๐Ÿ™‚

          Thanks again for dropping by – I hope you enjoy your stay. ๐Ÿ™‚

          • sweetnightingale

            Thanks, Louise! ๐Ÿ˜Š Itโ€™s so nice to be here, and I look forward to reading more of your story. Iโ€™m still in the very early stages, but I will definitely be continuing. I donโ€™t know if you saw my other comment, but I have always liked Carlo Mancini. It will be great to see how you have developed him.

            No worries! My stories arenโ€™t going anywhere. ๐Ÿ˜Š I know how it is to be super busy, and those weddings are torturous to do. They are beautiful for our Simmies, but they are torture for us.

            I totally hear you on the Sims 3 Community dwindling. Itโ€™s so sad. Like you, I havenโ€™t really moved on to 4. I play it once in a while, but it wonโ€™t be the game that 3 is. Iโ€™m a latecomer to the Sims, so it was 3 I got used to, learned on, and constantly play. It will always be my favorite. I do have the other incarnations and play 2 every now and again. Like you, though, Iโ€™m stuck. LOL!
