A slightly longer chapter break than usual

A slightly longer chapter break than usual published on 9 Comments on A slightly longer chapter break than usual

Hey guys! Thank you for last week, it was really lovely to see all the people reading my daily updates! I know I say this all the time but really, thank you so much for reading. I’m honoured you’re here to share your time with me.

So as it says in the description I was looking over my outline for the rest of this book and I just really need to rework some things. I have learned a lot about storytelling and development over the last year and a half at The Animation Workshop and I want to apply these things. This is a perfect time to pause and make sure the next chapters get as good as possible.

I don’t have an exact date for when the comic will be back but the hiatus will probably be around 3-4 months, only to return stronger than ever.

This site won’t be dead though – I have to figure out how I want to do it but I would love to update you all on non-spoilery concept art and sketches while we wait, just to make sure everyone knows that this comic is very much good and alive. I’ll give more info on this as I make the calls!

So thank you, I hope you all got safely into 2018, TLO will be back as soon as I can manage it because lord knows this comic and the characters means the world to me.

    As long as we don’t lose you to the hiatus, that’s fine. Storytelling is all about growing, so if you’ve reached a point where you’ve grown beyond the story you expected to tell, more power to you for pausing to recalibrate. Keep up the good work, and may this storyboard edit help you grow even more as a storyteller!

      No worries at all! I didn’t come this far just to give up 25% through my comic

      I really appreciate this comic, thank you so much

    This is a great excuse to go back and re-read what’s already there to make sure I haven’t missed anything and to re-enjoy what I’ve already enjoyed 🙂

      Which is what I just did…

      Keep the story coming, please! I’m enjoying it very much. (I’m being selfish here. I have a lot of pain. It’s one of the ways I can distract myself from it.)

      My favorite color is green, you use a lot of it, to great effect ☺️ Thanks!

        “I have a lot of pain” I am sorry to read this and I hope it eases for you. If you’d like another webcomic for distraction purposes why not try which has an extensive back archive and is a story I’ve really enjoyed.

        • Meran Ni Cuill

          I’ll go check that out! Thanks for a new comic! (I read a lot of them! Haven’t heard this one though. )

          Ever read Digger? It’s been long finished… also Little Dee, also finished, and A Red Tail’s Dream too.

          The pain doesn’t ease. I’ve tried many modalities; most don’t touch it. But I deal.. ☺️ I found a pet laser device off Amazon. It helps my knees. For a day… but it does a great job!

            I haven’t. So many lovely comics, so little time!

        Hey there! I wanted to drop by and say I’m really honoured and touched by this comment.

        It’s not been that long and I’m already itching to get back to making pages so I hope this reassures you that the comic will come back 🙂 I’m just being disciplined so I can make sure to maintain the quality after my return!

        I have a list of recommended comics here on this site if you’re looking for another good read! I hope you find some more good content to keep you occupied

          Thanks for the reply!
          I currently read about 50 comics, lol.
          My biggest addiction is Stand Still, Stay Silent.

          I do like those with good storytelling. Yours qualifies! That you want to make it better just further recommends your work. Thanks so much for making is available. I wish I had a job, I’d send you $$$ to help out. I can’t though, but spreading the word I ~can do. ☺️
