Thoughts on my Challenge?
Anyone have any thoughts or question about my challenge for Sims3?
Apr. 19th, 2010 06:01 pm (UTC)
I am really excited to try this. I tend to get really bored and distracted with normal Legacy.
Apr. 19th, 2010 10:48 pm (UTC)
Why thank you. Yeah, I started writing this because I've been wanting to write up a challenge for a while now but wasn't sure how to start so it wasn't dull. I thought about the group of people who are always saying how they want a farm (though we kinda already have all we need minus animals) and just went from there.

If you make a story on it, I'll be sure to follow and read it.
Apr. 21st, 2010 09:01 pm (UTC)

There the link to my story..I didn't finish chapter 1 yet and the pictures suck...I will edit it more later. Tell me what you think.
May. 27th, 2010 09:18 am (UTC)
