Mary Stewart has taken on the challenge. She has the Best Selling Author aspiration. Her traits are creative, perfectionist and art lover.



I placed her on the $1,500 lot in Oasis Springs. After spending the first week between the library, the gym and surrounding area in Willow Creek, Mary has accumulated the following.





I was very, VERY surprised when her bills when she arrived home were $1,917. That is more than the lot is worth and there was nothing on it. I'm confused. I've used this lot before and even with basic stuff the bills are much less than that.

Mary is doing very well at writing books. She gets daily royalties of around $1,500. It is now the Thursday of the second week.

Mary Stewart is very pretty. Did you earn that much the first week?? Wow...impressive!

I have no idea why your bills were that high. Were you leaving the items on the lot as you collected them? I sold mine from the inventory as I collected and my bills the first week were only a little over 100 simoleons.

Thanks BG. She is a good writer. She has earned the Creative Visionary reward trait. That and the perfectionist helps her to earn more and have better quality books.

Everything was in her inventory. I got the notice while she was at the library. It said then, before she even went home, that it was that much. I'll see how much it is the second week. She now has a bunch of stuff including a computer that she needs to write. I had a glitch with the fridge. I would ask her to make a salad and it would take the $3 but the action would cancel. I figured out to quit the game and go back in and it was fixed.

I wonder, had she earned a lot from the books the first week? I bet the bills are based on the entire lot value and the reserve funds. I had that stove/fridge glitch. I used the repair game feature (while game is closed, right click on the game image on Origin) and it fixed that issue.

She hadn't published any books yet either.

I've played Mary for two full weeks now.

Bills. It must have been a glitch. Maybe it counted the stuff in her inventory. Maybe it counted the library. I don't know, but it is very weird.



I'm using walls to designate the weeks and paintings to designate the use of the young again potion. I bought the painting while I could, but she won't be using the potion for a couple more days yet. She has mastered the writing skill and is on the last of the necessary tasks to complete her Aspiration.



Current status.

Potion markers can be an exception to the rule.
This is an unpredictable event so it will be allowed.
I will clarify that in the challenge thread.

Well that and all that other stuff that I laid out on the ground was in her inventory too.

No pics this time.

Mary has found herself a boyfriend and had her first woohoo. He is an elder, so won't last as long as she will. She has a garden and is one best seller away from completing her aspiration.

End of week 3 she has $61,844/1,000,000. She is making almost $6,000 a day in royalties. When she gets her Aspiration complete, she is going to get a job in the Writer career.

Thanks ladies.

Mary has completed her Bestselling Author aspiration. She got a job in the Writer career and got a promotion the first day. I changed her aspiration. It is now Fabulously Wealthy. I laughed when I changed it because she whizzed right up with only one task to completing this aspiration. She needs to earn $200,000. She is at $115,000/$200,000. Not sure what aspiration we will go for next. Probably one the the other two creative ones.

Here is her with boyfriend, Duke Justice, cloud gazing.



Duke visits, sometimes twice a day, and chats with her while she writes. She asks him to stay the night and he goes to sleep at about 6 am and leaves when she leaves for work.

She has completed week 4 and is at $105,687/$1,000,000. This is a fun challenge. When Duke stays, it reminds me of the ISBI Challenge I did with Bonnie Ayres in Sims 3.

Duke came over for a visit, but, his time came.



He died at the front door.



I sent Mary over, well, because I thought she should be there, however, she was hungry and stepped over the body to go in a get some lunch.



She had a little chat with the Grim Reaper afterwards. She is dancing, he is not.



I put his grave under the apple tree.



He did visit a couple of nights later. Mary got an achievement for woohooing with a ghost.



At the end of week 5, Mary has a little house. The interior is painted. I'm using siding on the exterior now to designate the weeks. She has taken her second youth potion. She is at level 3 of her career and $45,000 away from completing her current aspiration.

$151,012/!,000,000

Duke still shows up every couple of days. I have the option to ask him to be her boyfriend. Laughing He helps himself to food and entertains himself while she sleeps. He has also been known to break stuff.



End of week 6. I've paid the bills, but I can't think of anything she needs to buy. I've left her with a very very red plumbob. She just got home from work. I'll pick up where we left off next time.

Week 6:
Skill Mastered: Writing, Cooking
$183,944/1,000,000
Level 4 Writers career
$15,000 away from Fabulously Wealthy aspiration completion.

One of Mary's friends called asking to come over for a visit. She hadn't even greeted Daryl when this happened.



Mary kept gardening through the whole process. She did stop to have a chat with Grimmy. I've moved both tombstones back together. She released them both to the netherworld. Duke has been breaking too many things at night and she doesn't have time for fixing them all.



Mary has great luck with friends. Rolling Eyes  She has 13 Sims in her relationship panel. 1 is the Grim Reaper, 5 are elders and 7 are ghosts.

I think she needs to find a new friend. So she has made friends with an evil child and a squeamish teen who hates children.

Mary completed her Fabulously Wealthy aspiration and has changed to Musical Genius. She quit her job at level 6, Short Story Writer, and got a job in the Entertainment career.

I'm only half way through the week, so I'll update when the week ends.
