Scene-setting: The most important tweak you can make to your writing

While our modified script format can sometimes seem like a good excuse to write all-dialogue sims, we can’t forget that it’s the scene-setting, exposition, and character development that really motivates a reader to identify what what you’re writing and want to read more.

That’s why we’ve put together a new tutorial on our site that discusses scene-setting, explaining how this important skill can bring new life to your sims and change the way that others respond to your sims.

Read the tutorial on our website, then go nominate a sim that demonstrates great scene-setting for the Top Sims Contest!
