The dreaded H word

24 January 2011

Okay, now for the real explanation. Obviously, there’s no bugs in the Smithsonian basement, and they’re not fumigating. I, on the other hand, am moving.

You’ve probably noticed that the past month of updates has gotten a bit unreliable? I’ve missed days, or forgotten to add in the text. A bunch of them are still missing transcripts, that sort of thing. The reason? All my free time has been taken up by cardboard boxes and packing tape.

So now I’ve come up against a hard cutoff point. I have no more photographs, and all my props are boxed. My tripod is in a bag somewhere and I don’t even know what happened to my camera charger. I simply don’t have Artifact 3 ready to go. This means, loathe though I am to say it, that the Darkened Heart project has to go on… ugh… Hiatus.

I hate that word. It’s a loaded word in the webcomic community. It symbolizes abandoned projects. All of them swear that they’ll only be gone a month, or X many weeks, and hardly any of them ever come back.

I wish I could prove that this one will be different, but what kind of assurance can I offer that’d be stronger or better than the ones offered by all those abandoned projects?

I’m moving on Saturday/Sunday. It’ll probably be a week or two before I’m unpacked. Once that’s done? I can’t promise that all the prep work for the next artifact will be ready in less than a month, but I’ll at least try.

Keep track of the RSS. The moment something new comes up, you’ll see it there.

Be well,
