@vekkev59 The issue will probably come back. I merged your thread with the bug report now.

@LostOne20 I didnt realize the thread was merged with another til now, but I did encounter the bug again last night but I havent done anything different so I can only assume that its a time based bug perhaps? Not sure but writing is definitely wonky.

@crinrict in a way I'm glad im not the only one having issues but also sucks that writing is having issues for everyone. No game is perfect by any means but this is probably one of the few i actually care enough to make bug reports for.

Write a genre book BUG

★★★★ Newbie

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.58.63.1010
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get Famous, Cats&Doge, Parenthood, My First Pet stuff, holiday celebration pack.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? It is a basic Sims function. It has always been a function on many Sims versions.
What happens when the bug occurs? I click the computer, I press “write..”, I press “write genre book..” and when I go to select any type of book to write, it doesn’t register to my sims queue.
What do you expect to see? I expect the action to be added to my sims queue and to be able to start writing a book of my choice for my sims career progression.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. This started immediately after I updated the last patch on November 12th

What do you expect to see? I expect for my sim to write a book that I choose for their job to progress. I cannot write a book but I can “practice writing”.

I'm having this issue as well (struck it first on writing a comedy routine). Also fixed by buying a new laptop/computer

@ShastaKnight I merged your post.

Can I get feedback from everyone if they're using a spellcaster with familiar or if it's happening for every Sim ?
