I haven't forgotten the blog again! The lead-up to the holidays has been unusually hectic this year, and I just haven't had time for it. I might have been able to pull together a gameplay-based update, but I can't fit one in right now, if the story is to happen the way I want.
My next update will be a storytelling-heavy and picture-heavy one with multiple locations. It's one I've had in my mind in one form or another for ages, so I want to get it right. And it has to happen now, as other events depend on it, and they need to happen at certain times this sim year (before a character goes to college, for example, or during the sim-summer, or whatever). It's the worst update to come to right now.
The good news is that I have almost two weeks off work over the holidays. So it will happen soon. I'll leave this post up until the update comes. In the meantime, I wish everyone here Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. See you soon!
