So lately, whilst I still enjoy creating my comic, I've been realising I'm being consumed by it. I'm spending every moment making it, obsessing over hits and readership and worrying myself way more than I should about advertising, and the fear I'm losing peoples' interest, which is feeling scarily real right now. It's kinda just become my life, and I feel like I need to step back a bit. So for the next... fortnight? Maybe? I'm not going to post or spend time on CF and spend some time writing instead. Beyond will continue to update and the exchange won't be affected, but that's going to be it for now. I know I maybe don't post as much as I could anyway, but ehh...

Thanks for understanding anyway. Still love this site and the people here. Everything will probably get better. Hopefully. -u-'

Hey, sorry it's feeling that way. I've been there.
I hope the brain gremlins ease off and you get back to just enjoying things.

Hey Jammy, been there, so I understand how you feel. Make sure you sort it all out in your head, you are a positive spark on the site.

Out of curiosity, will this affect the exchange?

Sometimes it's best to just take a break and clear your head. Take care of yourself Jammy. Hopefully the writing will help ease your mind while still exercising that creative muscle!

I completely feel you, I'm having to do the same thing. Every once in a while it's almost necessary for an artist to get "re-centered" and refocused on the act of actually creating something.

The act of creating and the act of interacting/posting online inhabit two completely different mental spaces for me. Each of these two "states" require special attention and protocol. I can only toggle the two roles of "creator" and "networker/marketer/etc." for so long before it becomes tiring and I lose focus on what I'm doing in the first place.

Saying all that to say, I get it and best of luck!

Thanks so much for your kind words, humans. I'm feeling a lot better now and I think, ready to get back to work on stuff. I've missed posting here! I think sometimes it is good to have a little time off.

We'll be cheering you on, Jammy! Feel better soon. <3 I can relate to what you're going through. We've all been there. I still feel that I need a Break. I've worked so hard on my Comic. Constantly for Two Years Straight without much of a Break. So I understand you needing to rest. *hugs if you want them* Get some rest!
