Liebster #2

I was nominated for this award by Jazen...I think she enjoys burning ants with her magnifying glass. But, she is my friend and what kind of friend would she be if she didn't include me in her mise...fun? She's a talented writer of several Sims' stories as well as the published author of the book Fiendish. Thank you again for the nomination, Mica :)

The Liebster Award is given by bloggers to bloggers, to promote the blogging sites we love and support.

Accepting the nomination comes with these conditions:
1. Post the award on your blog.
2. Thank the blogger who presented the award and link back to their blog.
3. Nominate 5-11 bloggers whom you feel deserve this award and have fewer than or equal to 3,000 followers.
4. Answer 11 questions posted by the nominator, and ask your nominees 11 questions.

My Nominations:
~Misty for Ouroboros Legacy.

~Andantezen for The Last Canvas
~Katurah for Fashionably Late.

**And my last nomination I would like to posthumously award to a dear friend and extremely talented writer Jillyson for A Clockwork Heart.**

1. How would you achieve world peace? (yes I'm laughing as I type that LOL)
...7. Alright a better answer? I'd implant chips in the hearts of every human on the planet. The chip would be a tiny electronic device that would detonate at my discretion. If they dared step out of line, broke the law in anyway, shape or form, I'd press that little red button and watch them explode. Peace level achieved: 10.

2. Vanilla game or CC user? Why?
CC. Because there is just WAY too much awesome stuff to pass up. At one point, I had over 6 gigs of stuff (old computer). I'm slowly building that back up but hopefully I won't get too out of control. Not making any promises.

3. Do you prefer to make your own sims for your stories or use sims made by friends?
I make my own sims most often but I have used some from friends. For an upcoming story, however, I went with sims I found online from other generous creators. Why you ask? Well kind soul I will tell you, and thank you for asking. The story is about zombies and many of the sims may not survive (their fates are COMPLETELY in the hands of the readers). I couldn't very well let my own babies get eaten by brain craving, flesh rotting, death moaning, living dead monsters now could I?

4. Do you ever think you'll stop writing sim stories, or playing the game?
At this point I don't see an end. But, who knows. I know a lot of Sims 3 CC creators have taken to playing Sims 4 which is rather disappointing so there will be no new content from not only EA but the Sims' community as a whole which is a deterring factor. But for now, I'll be around. I've already planned a few more stories so you're not rid of me so easily. :)

5. Have you ever had your story veer off course from what you originally planned?
Yes. Many times. Sometimes the original plan for a story seems less um...what's the word...spectacular than something I can think of down the road. Often I will change events around to suit the new idea and since I plan my stories well in advance it's not usually too hard to edit. But there have been times I find myself writing a scene and ask myself "Now how did that happen?" or "How did we get here?" The characters can have minds of their own and She-Brain likes to work against me when she thinks something works better than my plans. The traitorous devil. You know she's broken up couples and killed people?? (By-the-by She-Brain is the nickname I give the voice(s) in my head).

6. If you were a sim, what would be your traits?
Animal lover, genius, good sense of humor, mean-spirited, perceptive.

7. What is your favorite sims EP?

8. What is your least favorite EP?
I'd say ITF as I've not really explored that one. But it was University because of that camera stealing mascot. But since I've modded my game, he can no longer be an attention whore. Take that Fighting Llamas!

9. If you were stranded on an island, what (or who) would you want with you?
A boat so I can get back home. Duh! :P And not just any boat. I want a fancy, expensive yacht that can withstand anything in order to get me back to civilization. Other than that? My husband. Misery loves company and if I'm stuck without internet and my computer, so shall he be! My dog. Even though she is the biggest chicken I've ever seen in my life, she toughens up when strangers are around and that's all I need. She can protect me (because I know the husband would be running in fear). Um...an endless supply of food and water and a nice shelter to lay my head. If possible, internet and my computer. I'd make that island my private paradise!

10. How long do you spend writing or rewriting a chapter before you publish it?
Oh wow that can really vary. If I know what I want it can take a few hours, 6-8. And even though I'd just finished it and read and reread and edited and proofread, I'll ALWAYS do it again the night before or the day of release just to be sure everything is as perfect as I can make it. If I'm a little scatterbrained it can take weeks, months even. I've been on extended hiatuses because of writer's block. 

11. What is the 1 store set that EA created that you can't do without?
Um...hmm...um...well...see the thing is I much really prefer CC. But, since I HAVE to pick one. It would probably be the magic set although I haven't used it much lately. Yes. Going with that. It'll play a role in the current story I'm writing.

Questions to my nominees: (rehashed for the new selection)
01. When did you start writing?
02. Are any of your characters or situations based on real people or events?
03. What inspires you to write?
04. Which of your characters is your favorite?
05. Who is your favorite author?
06. What kind of books do you read?
07. If you could use the Sims Time Machine, where would you go and why?
08. You're stranded on a deserted island with 4 characters from your story(ies). Who are they and what do you think would happen? 
09. If you could be any character from a book or movie, who would you be and why?
10. If you could marry the man/woman of your dreams, who would you choose and why?
11. Sims have a lot of quirky and fun inventions and objects not found in real life. If you could choose one thing (for example, spellbook, time machine, Bonehilda) what would it be and why? (Feel free to choose from any of the amazing custom creations as well e.g. Pose Player, Pregnancy controller, lighting tweaks, etc.)

Thank you again, Mica, for the nomination :)
