So if you have been following my blog at all (thanks, btw!) you will have noticed a slump in my creativity. Life has kept me so preoccupied that creativity has been a less than a last thought. However, lastnight I had an epiphany. I was playing my VERY favorite game, Sims 3, when I realized my favorite part of any game is character creation! I thrive on picking out how my character is dressed, what their personality traits are, and what their house looks like. I like deciding what they have to eat, what they read, and where they work. Perfect for trying to write a story about a person!
So I paused the screen of my game, and started writing about what I saw. I saw Egyptian vases, leather couches, marble statues. I saw an easel, a vast bookshelf, and maroon carpet. It was amazing! To have your thoughts visualized, but backwards!
I'm so very excited to have found this path of inspiration! Now the possibilities are endless. Well mostly, as Sims 3 only has so many combinations. :) But it is a starting point! Off I go to create!!
