Hello Simmers and story fans! It’s just me checking in with a quick update and an informative post.
First, I have two new posts coming. The first will be Chapter Three in Generation Two, and you will NOT want to miss it! Chris is ‘massaging’ some of my storyline to clarify and polish it; I hope to have that back soon! I am shooting for a Christmastime release, but it will definitely be here before the new year settles around us. The second post will be the annual Year In Review post, and though I haven’t begun compiling data on that yet, I’m pretty optimistic I will have some impressive numbers to share with you!! Stayed tuned for both posts.
The second item of note is an approximate three week break for me. This is to prepare our home for some significant structural repairs, which will be completed around the second week of January. I have much to do, and not much time to finish packing away valuables and breakables. After a close call in August with a tiny electrical fire outside our bedroom window, and a bigger, more serious fire on the property in November, the property management here is taking more seriously the issues present in these older apartments.
Those photos were of the structure fire diagonally across from our building. Our home was never in danger, but you can bet this event was stressful for all 100 families that call this place home.
Management is being proactive with repairs going forward, which is why we are being temporarily displaced. We have issues with stress cracking and leaking windows, wet rot and mold. These issues will be repaired while we are gone. I understand they will replace our old, worn flooring in the non-carpeted areas, too. This is a good thing!!
Writing will continue actively once we are in the hotel, and then another week off to resettle everything how it was before. In reality, this shouldn’t change how often I’m publishing chapters, but I wanted y’all to be aware of why Chapter Four might be a little longer than I’d like.
Thank you ALL so much for your audience to this blog, for loving and supporting my work, and for your comments, emails, and social media follows. The Sims community rocks, and I’m so humbled.
From my families to yours… I wish you all a Merry Christmas, and a happy, healthy and prosperous new year. May 2022 be the year all your dreams come to fruition!!
