Problem with Writing Books

★★ Newbie

Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Free Holiday Pack
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have a Sim either start writing a book or continue one.
What happens when the bug occurs? The icon for the task isn't right. Instead of showing the computer, a hard drive(I think) is shown. The progress wheel stops and the sim never finishes the task. Also the action can't be removed from the queue. I can have my sim do other tasks but it shows the icon for writing a book in the queue.
What do you expect to see? Sim should write or continue writing a book until done.
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? No

Hi, PathlessInk. Did you manage to solve the problem? I also encountered this issue and never found out why it works in one case and not in another. This situation is much easier to deal with in the real world because we have professional experts who can help with various tasks. As an international student, this source allows me to write, especially in complex scientific terms, that I am not yet used to. It would be great if a service like this appeared in the game. Imagine your Sim getting help writing a novel while you sit back and enjoy the story.
