Back in May, I proposed that if Patreon support reached $30 a month, this comic would switch from updating every other week to weekly. Since then, Patreon pledges have grown. And although we haven’t hit the $30 mark, I’m still very grateful! Thank you to all my wonderful Patreons!
This is why, it has been very difficult for me to make the following decision. I need to postpone my $30 Patreon challenge. I can still update every other Tuesday, like I’ve been doing. But for the foreseeable future, I cannot update every week. It’s not something I want to do, but it is something I must do, so I can meet the obligations of my day job.
My job requires me to acquire two certifications within a limited time frame. To get these certifications I need to pass two very difficult tests. However, between working full time and making this comic, I haven’t had much time to study. Initially, I didn’t see this as a problem, because I was getting continuously faster at making pages. However the deeper I dove into this comic creating journey, unexpected tasks kept popping up. Like realizing the original plot wasn’t that great, and then quickly studying story structure, character design, and plot, so I could rewrite a better story. Or looking back at old pages, and realizing that I REALLY needed an editor.
So even though I’ve gotten faster at certain aspects of the comic creating process, it’s still my first comic, and I’m learning. I want to make this the best story I can, and I want it to be entertaining, fun and inspiring to readers. To do this, and still keep my day job, I need to stick with updating every other week for now.
If any of you decide to lower or end your pledges, I completely understand. However, I would be extremely grateful for your continued support. Because even as a comic that updates every other week, it still takes a lot of time, thought, heart, and money to keep it going. You patronage is both an emotional and financial lifeline for me.
Thank you for your time.
