tag — sunshine blogger award.

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 is it?
The Sunshine Blogger Award is given to those who are creative, positive and inspiring while spreading sunshine to the blogging community.

The Rules:
1. In a blog post, thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.
2. Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you.
3. Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
4. List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or your blog. 

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!

  2. These are really good answers. How can you not be proud of anything in your story? Oh, come on, Lila, you worry too much. And woot! Three weddings sound amazing. I am sure your photos for them will be stunning. I adore Cinna, too, she’s beautiful!

    • Darn my perfectionism! Ahh but I’m sure there’s something I’m proud of, just not the plots, haha. I think the main thing I’m proud of is the steady improvement.
      Thanks! I’m not sure why Cinna appears the most beautiful of three, since they all basically have the same facial structure, it’s probably her personality lol.

    • You’re welcome! Yeah, for me it doesn’t really feel like over a year ago. I’m very excited for when I can post again, it feels like one of those things that you’ve been looking forward to so long that it feels like it will never come (if that makes sense haha). Thanks 😊

    OMG not just one wedding, but THREE :O I already know they are gonna be stunning :'D Haha, I really can't wait until you start posting your story again *cough* no pressure *cough* Briar in your prof doesn't even look like a sim tbh, she's so pretty~ I also let bits of my personality seep into my characters, but I never have an actual person resembled in the game.
    I enjoyed reading your answers 🙂 Now I'm off to answer your questions~

      Yep, three, and they are all quite different styles so I’m hyped to decorate them!
      I’m hoping to have characters that look even more realistic than profile Briar for Generation 4 😃
      Thanks, I’m looking forward to reading your answers!
