Can’t continue writing songs

Problem

My Sim is supposed to write a song but I need to write it in one go as there is no option to continue writing the songs.

It’s the same for lyrics and custom mixes on the DJ booth

Cause

Songs, lyrics and mixes are placed in the Sims inventory to be continued from there, different to books and comedy routines.

Solution

To continue click on Sheet Music, the Song Lyrics or Our Very Own Mixtape and then hit Resume on the song you want.
