Regular readers will have probably realised that it has been quite a long time since one of these blog posts ended with “(Don’t miss today’s Finger Puppet Show!)” and the reason for that is because I have not updated it in over a year now.
It’s a shame, because I wasn’t planning to take such a long break – it just ended up happening that way. When I was creating my 500th strip, it ended up taking up a lot more time than I expected. It was silly of me, really, because my idea for that strip isn’t really that good, but it’s creation is still going to be very time consuming. I actually thought I’d get it done right on time to post as part of a regular update, but when it ended up taking longer than planned, I made a strip which said that it might take a little longer than usual before the next update…
Sadly, after I had acknowledged that there was going to be a gap, I used it as an excuse to be lazy. At the time, I was working in a call centre and had a ridiculously erratic schedule which made it hard for me to do things in my free time. Thankfully, I have a good job again now and I’d easily have time to continue my webcomic – and this is something I want to do. I’m committed to resuming it before the end of the year, hopefully sooner rather than later and I’m a little ashamed in myself for letting it get so out of hand – so I do apologise to the very small number of people who enjoyed reading it!
Okay – disregard what I just said. I just looked at my webcomic and it seems that I last updated it in May this year. My memory is really getting bad these days… I feel less bad about the gap now, because it’s less than half the size I thought it was! It is true that the call centre job slowed me down though and I still aim to get back on track ASAP!
