The Sims 4 Wiki

The art of putting ideas and thoughts onto paper![]

Putting pen to paper (or more likely, fingers to keys) is no easy task. The blank page can be one of the most daunting foes, but writers take on the challenge of finding a way to put emotions into words day after day.

Writing is primarily done on the computer. Increasing this skill will unlock new Writing Interactions on the computer as well as the ability to Publish and Self-Publish books!



If you have a Sim reach level 10 in this skill you can unlock the Literal Genius Achievement.

Sims in the Inspired emotion will generally be better writers.
