For me (I'm not a writer though)...for my Sunday Sims...I try to be in a good mood. I usually make my story in the morning while it's quiet...lots of coffee. I like my story to be light-hearted and funny, romantic and frosted with sugar. Let's face it...real life is far from perfect...my Sims deserve the best
Depends on the post. Usually, though... drink (usually just a bottle of water), maybe some instrumental music (usually of the video game variety--hey, it's great for mood-setting), and then just type away
I generally try to plan out scenes roughly on paper first. And I mean rough. lol Then I'll go in game and take shots first, sounds backwards I know but that's just how I've come to write my sims story. Very rarely do I type out the scene first and then take shots. Though I was lucky once but Blogger decided to eat my entire post when they had their melt down! I've since recovered, I think, but now back up everything I write into a word document.
Okay sort of veered off the track there.... um, then I'd upload my shots and start typing away!
Oh I forgot to add that I like to write late at night when all is quiet. No interruptions, no nagging from my boyfriend. lol

I just start up with a single Male/Female/Family or as I have done this time.... 3 families. I have an idea in my head and then I start to play.. but... most of the time I just have to change everything... and make up my story as I play. Sometimes I have a million ideas but cant' take the pics..so therefore it can take som time between my update... LOL
Jennifer...I agree, I like it to be quiet. I get distracted too easy
4mamma...I to have so many ideas that I want for my story. Then I get into the game and do it totally diffrent then what I had planned. Sometimes I just play and see what happens with their interaction but most of the time, I cheat Thank the Sim Gods for pose boxes and Sim trays!

I don't have a routine. I'm random, I suppose. Sometimes it's loud afternoon. Sometimes it's quiet wee-hours of the morning. There's never the same beverages, snacks, or even style of writing (via computer or notepad).
But I do need to formulate a routine that way I'll train my brain to know when it's time to write and get down to business!
