Okay. I’m going to be honest, completely honest.
1. I am sooo sorry I have been MIA. There is no excuse for my lack of work recently, other than complete laziness. I feel sick about wrapping myself up in a blanket and hiding. And I apologize for that. Completely. 😦
2. I allowed some stuff get to me which is why I had a hard time doing anything dealing with my writing, and I apologize for that as well. Sims 4 stuff sent me into depression since I wasn’t around for sims 2 transition into sims 3 and it worried me people wouldn’t be as interested after sims 4 came out. But as lizzy1990 pointed out to me earlier, “how good are any of those newer legacies going to be when it’s just the base game, really? ;)”. The other reason I got depressed about my writing is explained in #3
So, 3. I’m going to write stuff that will offend people. I was having problems with this earlier… I’ve gotten some minor backlash about some stuff–nothing bad, really. (Nothing on here either it was said elsewhere) But it sort of just pushed me into depression and questioning if I should change a lot (a LOT) of things about my legacies. It put me in a bad place, and I am completely ashamed it did. It wasn’t hate stuff. I can deal with hate. It was just… me wanting to please my readers. But I can’t do that. I just can’t. I woke up today and it was like… invading my brain. I am going to offend people with stuff I write. Whether it is… more m/m in my legacies than f/f (which is unintentional) or… I portray something in a negative light even though it’s for a reason and I don’t agree with that, or it’s something like religion which I am trying not to go into except for Elijah stuff since I want to do the sims medieval religion type stuff… but I am gonna offend people.
I am sorry for that. But I can’t just cut stuff out or add stuff in just for the sake of pleasing readers. I will go where the stories take me. I have no control over a lot of the stuff that happens. No joke. Like, what is going on with Chance right now–the last chapter that was published? Wasn’t supposed to really happen. It was originally gonna be a couple paragraphs and not that intense of feeling. But Chance said “lolz no”. Most my writing says “lolz no” and goes in places I don’t know about.
Plus, you know. The saying. You can please some of the people all of the time and blahblahblah. So yeah I AM sorry if you get offended by anything. But I just need to take my own advice that I give everyone: I need to write what I want to write. I can deal very easily with is constructive criticism, so please if you have any of that throw it at me. Or pointing out mistakes I made. Typos, or using the wrong name, etc. Stuff that happens a lot to me. Or hate, if you have hate then feel free to say it. And if you do get offended by something feel free to say it, I’m not saying don’t say it. But I’m not going to change things. Which I’ve been trying to do for the past… however long its been since I worked on anything for my stories. I’ve been going over legacies and generations (since I have gens 2, 3 and 4 planned for Dannings, and gens 2 and 3 planned for Patchwork) and debating whether to change things or even just cancel things. I don’t want to do that, and I shouldn’t give up on things because of me worrying about offending people. That’s just silly. 😛
So… 4. I guess there isn’t a 4. xD Except I am gonna get back to work on legacy stuff. Maybe not tonight cause of my headache, but tomorrow probably. I need to just stop worrying so much.
Blah, so that was a lot longer than intended but I needed to get that stuff off my chest. I hope you guys understand. Thanks for being patient, and for sticking with me. ❤
