Occasionally, a webcomic I like will stop updating for a while. And I might be tempted to think “Hey! What is up with this chumpzilla? Dude can’t draw summin’ twice a week? Once a week? I mean what is the deal! I still like that strip. Nuts to that guy!” At which point I might snap my fingers all sassy-like.
And after while, the artist (or writer) (or artist/writer combo) (or just the artist despite a combo, but I am getting ahead of myself) might walk into view from behind the content blackout, clear his throat, and offer excuses that are mostly unsatisfying.
So … hello again!
Yes, for the third time in a year, hello hello. Today, I speak to you on my own behalf, and not on Greg’s, because this is all my fault. (Mine. All of it!) Honestly, I’m not really sure what to say—it’s pretty clear that my interest in Chronillogical has waned a lot lately, and I need to figure out why. Right now, it feels as though there are a lot of reasons, nebulous and ill-defined, most of which fall under the umbrella of “my arting skills are pretty poor and drawing this strip is a pain, which makes me not want to do it!”
What’s frustrating is that, when the strip started, this was a problem that I could at least push aside long enough to finish something. For about a year and a half, we kept Chronillogical on a pretty regular schedule. But after a while, the strip didn’t feel right, and so I suggested making changes to it. Updates suffered. Then they suffered again. And now again. And I think it’s safe to say now that I don’t know what I’m doing and I’m not industrious enough to fake it! Not yet. With work and luck, that day will come. (On Eileen.)
Rest assured that Chronillogical has a future. (GET IT okay never mind this is not the time for that.) (Not the TIME okay seriously I will stop.) The strip has certainly had ample time to die by now, if it were destined to die! But I need to do some serious work before we’ll know what Chronillogical’s future should look like. Maybe when that day comes, I’ll be able to commit to a regular schedule, like the grownups do. Until then, subscribe to the feed and we’ll let you know what’s up, when it happens.
For right now? It would be irresponsible for me to make promises like “new comics next week!” so I’m not going to say that. Greg and I have some ideas to wrap up this arc, so we’ll probably move ahead with that before getting all experimental up in here. I don’t know exactly when they’ll show up on the site.
If I’ve left out any details you’re curious about, please sound off in the comments!
