So I created a new Sims household recently full of supernaturals—I had never played with supernaturals in TS3—and man, I should’ve done this sooner because this game is turning out to be so much fun. Like, I didn’t even have a plan when I created it. Didn’t know what jobs they’d have, what I wanted them to accomplish, etc., I just threw ’em all in a house together and was gonna see what happened, see what kinds of things each supe could do, that kinda thing. And not only am I totally invested in these sims now and constantly cracking up at all the strange new interactions, I’ve got all these inspirations for characters and stories based on these guys, and I’m thinking I might even write some short stories. (If my tennis elbow ever stops hurting so much, that is. It’s been worse than ever lately. I’ve gotten good at using my left hand only on the computer but have not used the computer much the past few days and am not planning to try typing an entire short story with one hand.)
Speaking of which, those of you who use dictation software, one of the problems I had when I tried one before was that it would turn off if I stopped to think for like five seconds. But I take lots of “think pauses” while typing. Any recs for a program that will stay on and keep listening until I tell it to turn off?
Anyway, my comments and replies might be generic today since typing with one hand sucks.
The sudden release of new books in series I’m reading continues with three more this week. Not that I’m complaining.
Books I Received for Review:
The first and the last two are from Dreamspinner. Wraith Hunter is from the author. Nero Protocol is from NetGalley.
Books I Finished:
Toric’s Dagger had a very detailed and thought-out world, and I enjoyed the motley crew of characters! Wraith Hunter was another unputdownable book in one of the few stereotypical kinda UF series I still read. And the fast-paced read was just what I needed. Pyresnakes was kind of… bland though.
Song of the Week:
Nothing this week.
Laugh of the Week:
Nothing this week.
In Case You Missed It:
– I shared book covers featuring wolves.
– I reviewed Organic by Jadah McCoy, a cyberpunk/dystopian about androids.
– I reviewed Shadow Fray by Bradley Lloyd, a gritty M/M dystopian about a dangerous, illegal fighting ring.
– I reviewed Meat: The Second Serving by Chele Cooke, an urban fantasy about werewolves and vampires.
