About the Writer

Hi! I’m Danielle, also known as DiDi, and this blog here is where I’ll be posting my stories derived from playing Sims 3!

I’m 24 years old, and I’m engaged to the man of my dreams.


I have two step daughters that I love with all my heart and soul.



I’ll be trying my hand in numerous things as I write my stories. There will be times the photos in a story will all be different(different lighting/processing, etc.. )This is just me experimenting. I hope I won’t take away from the story for my readers by doing this experimenting, but I cannot learn unless I practice,practice,practice!

As far as writing goes, I’ve been doing it since I was about 9 years old..Truth be told, I had a very rough childhood-spending many years in and out of children’s homes and state’s custody-and I found that by writing I was able to express myself in ways I never could vocally..Well, at least not then. These days I’m quite vocal! lol There’s a small piece of me in almost all of my stories. I do this because I like to write at least a little about what I can relate to. I feel that we each go through things in our lives, and we are meant to share those experiences with others so they can learn from them or just know they are not alone.

Though the story I’m working on now will be my own take on a sort-of Legacy style, you’ll find that it will go so much deeper than that.

There may be times that I’ll consider some of the parts of the story “adult”…but for the most part, it will be open to everyone.

There is something magical about playing The Sims. Every creative outlet is there, no matter who you are or what interests you:machinima, storytelling, picture taking and picture editing, interactive/casual gameplay, a wide community that spreads around the globe…..but what I enjoy most is picturing something in my head, writing that image down in detail, and then causing it to come to life before me. On a really hot day (I prefer snow or rain, lol) I’ll go into my world of Sims and create a scenery more fitting to my likes..When I wish for something I can never have, I escape into The Sims world and give it to my pixel-dollies..and when I’m sad or hurt or angry inside I know I can always turn it around by simply popping in my game disc and enchanting myself with my own ( and others’) creations.. I’d like my story to be that for you-when you’re sad, I wanna make you smile and laugh..When you’re devoid of emotion I wanna open you up, make you analyze and think and feel..and when you need to escape, I want my story to give you the break you need and deserve..Because we all have a right to a little happiness in this crazy world..

  1. Are you still having computer questions? I am in the process of building one, so I might be able to help. Email me and if I can’t help, I can point you to a couple places that can.

    • I now have a brand new computer, so I’m not experiencing the same problems. However, my new computer’s speakers have currently stopped working! lol I don’t know why but now I can only hear anything if I plug in my headphones!
      Forgive me, I’ve no idea how to email you! lol Perhaps you could try sending me a private message with your email address? I am considering building a gaming computer, and maybe you and I could discuss the best way to go about it? Though this computer is quite “nifty” (lol) I still think a real gaming pc would be so much better.

  2. Hmm, my email shows up in the comment form. How do I send you a private message? As far as a gaming computer, it really depends on how much you want to spend. However, if what you have now is running everything you play… then no need to upgrade yet.

    As far as your sound. Your soundcard drivers may need to be updated, your speakers may have gone bad, or something simple like the leads are plugged in wrong. Unplug your headphones, and plug the speakers in the same jack… if speakers work, then you can get a Y splitter from radio shack and run your speakers and headphones at same time.

    • Oh! lol You are so right-I see your email right there!!! 🙂
      Well, at least now I know it! I am going to email you so you will have mine as well.
      As for my speakers, it’s not any speakers I have plugged in, it is actually my built in speakers..they just got all wonky on me all of a sudden! I honestly don’t know what happened but about 2 nights ago they just stopped working and when I checked everything it all seemed fine, and as I said the headphones allow me to hear..That’s so strange to me-I’ve never had a computer do that before!

  3. Dear Didi,

    I only found this site because it turned up as a ‘referrer’ in my blog stats. I’m thrilled to pieces you have added mine to your blog roll.
    Your welcome word is very moving and I empathise completely.
    I’m looking forward to reading what you have written.
