I make a lot of traits for my sims to give them some variety, but this is the first one I've shared. I created it originally for my generic "crotchety old man" NPC, but I've found it a really fun trait, actually. I think it's good for sims who don't want the 9-to-5 grind, as it promotes collecting and writing as alternative sources of money-making. This trait also gives a decent boost to the writer career - those history books don't write themselves!

So-called smart sims (geniuses, geeks and bookworms) will glow in your company, however childish sims will find your company as dull as dishwater.

Tested for The Sims 4 v1.39.74 / Laundry Day Patch. Base game compatible.
