New Update Schedule

Wootlabs at this point is over a year old, and for the better part of that year, it's been updated twice weekly. After a lot of pondering, I've decided that it's best to drop the Thursday updates. There's a lot of reasons that go into this, and while I know this might disappoint some readers, I want to make it clear I didn't make this decision lightly. I think this will be a positive thing for the comic, for a few reasons.

Doing a comic twice a week, combined with a work schedule, leads to very little time allowed to learn and grow. All too often I've been noticing that I'm so focused with meeting the deadlines that I end up relying on things I already know how to do. There's no growth, and we're left with a comic that's consistent, yet not all it could be. There's a lot of room for improvement with Wootlabs, and with a less demanding update schedule, there's free time to work on those improvements.

I can't say it's all that, though. The other side of things is the toll it's taking on me personally. It can be stressful to meet a deadline, especially in the middle of the week when I come home tired from work. I don't want the comic to be a responsibility first, and a hobby second. It's when that line blurs that people stop enjoying things they love, and I absolutely don't want that to happen with the comic.

So, I guess what I'm saying is that even though this is a change that leads to less comics moving forward, those comics should be better, and drawn by someone that isn't pulling their hair out. :) As always, the support people have shown for the comic has been fantastic. Thanks for sticking around this long, there's plenty of stories left to tell with the Woot family.

Seems like a solid plan to me I love your characters and storytelling style, and I'm willing to be patient if it lowers your stress. The improved freedom to experiment is a welcome bonus! Keep on rockin', and I'll keep coming back every Monday to see the results!
