There’s a huge difference between liking someone and liking the attention they give you. Receiving kindness does not entitle you to like someone. Just because they call you pretty does not mean you like them. You like the fact they call you pretty. Someone liking you is them asking about your family and your favourite candy. It’s about having deep conversations about the most pointless things which somehow have meaning to the two of you. It’s about getting asked how your day was instead of what you’re doing. It’s about liking the person for who they are instead of what they say.
Who: All of you. Players. Writers. Photographers. Designers. Stylists. Creators. Builders. Everyone from Sims 1 to Sims 4, My Sims to Sims Medieval.
What: I’m thinking of starting a community-collective literary journal of sorts for simmers, by simmers. As such, the focus would be on writing (short fiction, humor, tutorials, creative non-fiction), which I know you’re all great at, but in-pictures are more than welcome as well.
This will be a heavy undertaking for just one person, so if you’re interested in helping with more than just submissions, feel free to offer yourself as sacrifice. Of course, this all depends on the amount of feedback and submissions I receive. It could be amazing and last forever, or it could fizzle out in a shorter time span than it took to make this cover. Who knows?
Why: Because simmers are awesome and a medium that gets their creative work the attention it deserves seems like an amazing idea. (And I’m not doing anything with my writing degree so it gives that, and me, a sense of purpose.)
When: Distribution of the issues will all depend on the amount of submissions we (currently we = me) get. Hopefully in the future a schedule can be created.
How: Issues will be distributed on Amazon as free digital e-books. Let me know of any other distribution means you’d like to see.
Where: Any questions, concerns, inquiries, volunteers, and especially submissions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have a lot of faith in this becoming something beautiful and I really hope you all envision the same. Once you’re done reading this post, keep in mind, reblogging helps get the word out.
