The Fate of the comic
Hey Folks, its Kuragari. I have Bad news, and potentially worse news.
The first is that the comic is not going to have any story updates anytime in the next week, maybe two. The rest of the Wily Storyline will be completed before the end of the month, but that could be at the very last instant before the month of august starts. Question comics will continue, and will be uploaded as if they had occured in the daily progression as usual. So will the rest of the Wily Storyline.
The second bit...is that I don't know if I want to keep working on the comic.
Ever since I got my nightshift job, I've been really busy, and really tired. Not only that, my desire and drive to make the comic a daily comic has turned something I enjoyed into effectively a second job (because unless I force myself to build up the caches, the comic would probably only update every week). But thats not the real problem.
I just am not getting the motivation to keep making the comics. And I believe a large part of it is the lack of feedback.
Even though I don't care what people think about my comic, I still would like to know what they think of it. Hearing comments and feedback from people is the way I am able to tell that someone is reading the comic. The views count means nothing to me, only the fan count and the number of comments.
I don't expect dozens of comments for every page, but a part of me wishes people would say more about what they think of the comics.
So, here's the status of the comic.
-The comic will have this current storyline finished sometime this month.
-I do have the next storyline planned out, and an outline for the one following that. But...
-At the same time, I don't really feel the inspiration or joy that I normally get out of making the comics
-I feel that I have only a few fans, despite the fan count telling me I have 48. If I offend any of my fans with this or my earlier comment, I apologize,
-My normal routine of forcing myself to make the comics is not working.
With these in mind, I intend to take a month to consider exactly what I want to do with the comic. Comments from you the readers will of course effect my decision. Now, I would like to state that I have no intention of deleting this comic, nor do I intend to permanantly abandon it (not yet anyways) However, the current fate of the comic is in limbo. I may end up doing some sort of revised update schedule, like 3 comics a week, or just slowly build up the cache over the period of a month or two and set it to have updated daily anyways.
or something like that. Or, I may take a somewhat indefinite hiatus until I can get the motivation back.
At any rate, I felt I owed everyone an explanation as to why the comic hasn't been updating, and how things are going. Hope more people come up with questions, as I would like to still do the six question page things.
