PostSubject: Presenting.... Dalton Anderson   Sun Dec 06, 2015 2:49 pm

I had been toying with the idea of having a sim Actor, who featured in "films" and "TV shows" etc, allowing me to explore different writing styles and scenarios without messing with my legacy or sim-illinaire tales, but to be more than a series of random shorts.

And so Dalton Anderson was born.



But I was struggling with a real focus, a 'where to start' problem, with actual story material for Dalton.

Then my prayers were answered by a thread on the Sims 4 Forums - This One

Basically it's a writing competition, each month a topic is given and you write whatever you like to that theme.  This has been great as it allows me to gain a little bit of focus for my writing and actually get something done.

I have only completed one story so far, but I thought I would share it here...'ol Mr Anderson won't become a star without some exposure!

So without further ado...

A Fine Time to Lose - the theme for November was 'Lost'.

I hope you enjoy...

A Fine Time to Lose was perfectly written. I loved it. I never thought about him losing her....and himself most likely. I hope you carry this on. Thanks for sharing.


I love the idea of using Dalton for all the story challenges. I am really looking forward to reading these. applause

That was sad. As I'm sure it was meant to be from the title.

Thank you to everyone.  

My story Everything Grows got second place in the March monthly story competition.  I am very chuffed, particularly as there were some amazing entries last month!

Latest short story!

This months challenge was to use a pre-defined set of screenshots and build a story around them.
