Sims New Year's Resolutions

Inspired by simtopi and strange tomato.

1. Finish Maxis Makeovers. This will definitely happen this year but now that I'm to the bigger neighborhoods it is a bit daunting. Seriously, Pleasantview took a fair bit longer than anticipated once I got through each and every house. I think Bluewater Village is the one that leaves me a bit befuddled at this point in time.
2. Start posting my yet unnamed work in progress story. And also, you know, give it a name. This will happen soon but it is worth including.
3. I'd love to do some short character stories but we'll see how that goes. My tendency is to create huge projects that take forever to come to fruition so it seems like it would be fun to do some bite sized stories to share a little more regularly.
4. Thank creators more. Comment on people's stories more. Generally be more actively encouraging to my fellow simmers. This one I'm kind of terrible at. I love reading BACCs--like, seriously every time I read one I am so impressed at the love people put into these but when it comes to commenting I go a little blank aside from using awesome, amazing and fantastic way too much. Also, I'm a CC packrat but I don't always leave a comment and I'm thinking that with the work that folks put into their content I really should take the time and not be so shy.
5. Read more sim stories. Yeah, this. I have such a backlog to catch up on here. Not much to say here except that I'm really looking forward to this. I've got quite a few stories earmarked but I need to make sure to set aside the time, make some tea and read.

I probably should also just play the game as intended. But what I really love about sims is the way that it is (especially when modded) extremely open ended. The creative play aspect of the game is what I've loved about it from the beginning--it can be anything you want it to be. Part of why I've enjoyed this community (across many different sims sites) since Sims 1 is that it is so inspiring to see what everyone does with the game. Games that leave room for the player's imagination are seriously awesome!

Your make overs are incredible so I'm certainly looking forward to seeing more of them!
