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 to be anything like this (constant tiredness and grumpiness) I’ll need a little more than a week. It doesn’t help that I bought a Nintendo Switch (Super Mario Odyssey is legendary) and I may or may not have been spending copious hours on that.

SO! This is pretty much the same as the last post (I’ll probably delete these once I return), but it’s just to inform everyone that the next chapter will be out on the 20th of October, so don’t be shocked if you see nothing next weekend. I’m still not giving up on the story and I WILL be back eventually. Until then, have a great time.

I hope you get your energy back soon, I’m looking forward to the 20th ๐Ÿ˜€ I will be out myself till November 10th but I don’t think I need to write an official message since I post irregularly anyway ๐Ÿ˜‚
That picture of Regenzo is so nice! I love how her sweater and the cup (and the blanket and the painting and slippers) are matching, and Gina is giving me mom vibes hehe. Now I’m imagining these two being parents wahhhhh ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Thank you, Lila. I honestly can’t wait to post again myself. I really miss it, even when I can tell that it’s not the right thing to be doing right now. I can’t wait for more of your stuff, either. The last one was so good <3
    I just can't help but colour-coordinate things, which is why I'll probably never go over to ts4 - what would I do without CASt? Oh, you're so right - Gina really does have mom-vibes. I can't wait for the next gen with them being parents, honestly. But I've already started faffing around with their kids, so that might be why ๐Ÿ˜›

      Yeah, it’s sad they took out that option, as well as open world. The game is likely much less problematic but not being able to go wherever in the world is such a huge turn off.
      Already?! I get that lol. I keep on thinking about the Gen 4 kids when I full well know I should just be trying to finish this gen ๐Ÿ™„

        The game definitely runs smoother without mods, but the constant loading screens are such a pain. The game just doesn’t do it for me…
        Ha, ha, I do remember you talking about your next gen. I always start thinking about the next one waaay too soon :’)

It’s completely okay. I was going to say that’s why I didn’t set a date. But prologue comes out today at usual time, which makes me super excited. โ™ฅ I love this picture you posted, it’s so pretty, as always.

    NotJustaBook · October 6, 2018 at 1:45 pm

    He, he, I figured you or someone else might say that, so I added it to the post xD
    I’m excited to read your prologue as well ๐Ÿ™‚
    And thank you <3

I am glad you did get a chapter written.. that is a good feeling of accomplishment. And I can totally understand Super Mario! That was one of my first addictions to video games along with The Legend of Zelda! Played hours and hours. And now I play sims for hours and hours! I was hard for me to move to sims 4 for the very reasons you mention. Most especially the color wheel and being able to make it more specific. I own everything including all of the store…I miss it a lot especially when I am decorating and dressing my sims. ๐Ÿ˜ข I so want that color wheel back.

    NotJustaBook · October 6, 2018 at 6:30 pm

    Yes, it’s lovely to finally feel like I’m getting somewhere. Just today I snapped some pictures for the chapter after that, so that’s also a good feeling. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I grew up with a Nintendo 64 and playing Super Mario gives me such a happy feeling <3 It helps that it's probably one of the best games in the series so far, in my opinion ๐Ÿ™‚
    The colour wheel is such a golden feature - I have NO clue why they removed it. They said it's to improve performance, but colour wheels don't really hurt performance. It's silly! I felt a bit of hope seeing that they had one for pets, like, maybe they would make one for sims as well... but nope. Guess a turquoise dog doesn't hurt performance, but a turquoise sweater would just break the game xD (Sorry, I'll stop ranting now).

      I hear you! Exactly! Lol

Kymber · October 6, 2018 at 11:40 pm

I think it’s totally understandable and I’m looking forward to the return! <3

Hey Louise – don’t ever worry about the lack of chapters! We know how important is to sometimes just take a break and gather oneself in order to let the magic happen ๐Ÿ˜‰ I know I’ll be here on October 20th or later if that’s what you decide ๐Ÿ™‚
(I looove that picture of Gina and Enzo – so cozy and sweet. I bet they would make such a lovely couple once the bantering and bitching stops, lol)
Take care and see you soon! <3 <3

    Thank you very much, friend ๐Ÿ™‚ <3 Since writing this, I've managed to write another chapter and I've taken pictures for another (about to take more). It seems this extra week really is what I needed. The words are flowing again.
    (I can't wait to share the next few chapter, because I really feel like it won't be long before they get to a point where they can be this cozy and cute together).
