Books are a great way to make sure your Sims have a constant stream of income. Bestsellers, mystery and biography books bring in the most money. On average, Sims need 3-4 hours to write a book. This means they can easily write 3 books a day.

The good news is that you can speed up the book writing process a bit with the help of a few handy tips and tricks that I’ll share below. Let’s jump right in!

How to make writing go faster in Sims 4

Step 1: Get Very Inspired

The best way to make writing go faster in The Sims 4 is to make your Sim Inspired and Very Inspired. It usually takes less three Sim hours to write a book while Inspired. This emotion is crucial for creative activities such as writing. The Creative trait directly influences how often a Sim is Inspired.

Step 2: Get Very Focused

Equally important, the Focused moodlet allows your Sims to stay really focused on the task at hand. To get Focused, have your Sim study a book, browse Simpedia, use a Focused potion, and so on.

Keep in mind that improving your Sim’s writing skills won’t make writing go faster but it will help them unlock new book genres.

Use Mods

Alternatively, you can also use mods to speed up writing in Sims 4. For example, you can install the QuickWrite mod by Mikya to cut the writing speed by half. You can also install the Faster Writing mod and speed up writing by up to four times.


To speed up writing in Sims 4, make sure your Sim is feeling Inspired or Very Inspired. The Creative trait and Focused moodlet allow your Sim to write high-quality books and stay focused for longer. Alternatively, you can use a mod such as QuickWrite or Faster Writing to make writing go faster.
