Prerequisites to write articles in The Sims 4

In order to write articles in The Sims 4, you must begin your journey as a Writer. To do that, open your in-game phone, navigate to the “Find a Job” option, and select the “Writer” position. Alternatively, you can access the “Career” tab on the right-hand corner of your screen and choose the writer’s profession directly from there.

Once you reach Level 5 in the writing career, you’ll get the option to choose between two branches: Author and Journalist. Choose the Journalist branch and focus on developing your Writing and Charisma skills. To succeed as a journalist, it is important to work on boosting your confidence by practicing speeches in front of a mirror. Additionally, building a strong network of Sim contacts and maintaining positive relationships will greatly benefit you in this branch.

Once you have gathered the necessary information, return to your computer and select the “Write” option. You will be prompted to choose whether your article will have a positive or negative tone. Positive articles aim to strengthen relationships, while negative ones could potentially weaken them. Make your choice and let your Sim’s creativity flow onto the digital page.
