Thank you to the wonderful Jowita from neverdoitagain for nominating me for this award! I feel guilty accepting this (a second time) considering I haven’t posted a chapter since 2016. 😅

What do you most enjoy about being a member of the WordPress community? I love how truly supportive the environment is. There’s so many lovely people who share the same passion for creative writing and Sims! The community is positive, uplifting and tightly knit, and I know that every time I open the site, I will close it in good spirits.
How often do you check to see if there’s anything new out here on WordPress? I check each morning, sometimes more often if I’m working on my own story. And of course, if I publish a chapter (which I haven’t done in sooo long) I will check much more frequently!
What makes you call a person a skillful writer? That’s a hard question. For me, the most important aspect is the ability to create vivid imagery and bring out emotion in the reader. If I genuinely feel something for the characters, whether it be sadness or frustration or protectiveness, I consider that skillful writing.
What do you do when you feel like you’re stuck on a particular storyline and don’t know where to take it? How funny that I got stuck on this question! Ideas for storylines usually blossom naturally when I’m writing, Pinterest is also a good help. The hard thing is forcing myself to write and begin that flow.
The prettiest Sim you’ve ever had in your game? Probably Luc or Cinna. But in my game overall, the version of Briar in my profile picture is the most recent and in my opinion, the prettiest.
Your favorite couple in your gameplay/stories? I have one couple that I ADORE in this generation. However, they won’t meet until Chapter 3.23, which makes me sad because their dynamic is by far my favourite in the legacy so far.
Your favorite non-romantic relationship in your gameplay/stories? Lilith and Raphael. They have a great platonic relationship which I haven’t really illustrated yet.
Have you had a Sim that you fell in love with right away? Raphael, he has such a cute mopey face haha.
If you ever did any storylines, what is the one you’re most proud of? I don’t have any that I’m proud of, to be honest 😂
Have you had any Sims that remind you of someone? Most of my characters have some facet of my personality, but off the top of my head, none remind me of other real life people.
Is there any random fact about your blog story you want to share? There are going to be three weddings in the last couple chapters of Gen 3, which I’m excited for!
