Welcome!

Welcome to my Sims 3 legacy blog!

Especially if you’re a new reader, it’s really exciting to have you here.  Thanks for coming to check my story out!  Please feel free to leave comments and feedback – I really appreciate hearing from people who read my stories and find it very encouraging!  I also welcome constructive criticism, although if you simply don’t enjoy my story, you don’t have to stick around (but thanks for giving it a go anyway) 🙂

This is the story of the Hunter family as they progress through the generations, following the basic structure of the popular Legacy Challenge.  For those who don’t know, the Legacy Challenge (originally created by sims community member Pinstar) is about following a single family through ten generations, focusing in particular on one member of each, starting with a founder.

Although I will be following the basic structure of Pinstar’s legacy challenge, I won’t be following all of the rules in order to focus more on storytelling than point-collecting.  I will also be following an alphabet naming scheme, meaning that every child born to the family will be named in alphabetical order (eg. Amy, Bob, Charlie, etc.)

Finally, I feel the need to include a disclaimer: I know it’s quite common to feel this way, but I personally consider much of the early writing in this story embarrassing and cringeworthy, and the only reason I haven’t deleted the entire first generation is because others have claimed to enjoy it. However, I like to think that I have improved my storytelling since, and only ask that you not judge the story as a whole based on its humble beginnings. There isn’t a lot of narrative overlap between generations, so if you can’t stand to read the earlier ones feel free to jump in at a later point in the story, although I can’t promise that everything will make perfect sense if you do.
