I haven't abandoned this comic yet, just finished doing all the outlines for this issue. This issue was intended to be about 20 pages yet it somehow turned into 40 :S

I'm not sure what I'm going to do for the rest of the comic, I've completely lost my rhythm so ... I mean I have a script of some sort but ...

the rest of this issue should come relatively quickly, but I can't be too fast cause I gotta work on the next issue and get back my rhythm.

By the time I get it back, this issue would probably be completely posted and I'd be scrambling to get the new issue after this one up ...
I burned through my buffer again ... oh shoot ...
the system usually kept the children "wit" the mother

"WIT" ... I'm not gonna live this one down

Usually, I run these things through a spell checker but on random occasions, I still get weird errors (maybe I forgot this time?)

I'll go back and fix this next time I have a chance

All the pages of this issue are done, took me long enough. I'm not sure whether it's just my process is becoming more complex or my schedule is so convoluted I can't find adequate time for this maybe a combination of both. I used to be able to pump out an issue in about 3 months, now it seems to take half a year :( ... I'm already thinking about making revisions for this issue (editing and revisions, another factor which makes making this take longer) but besides that perhaps I can start working on the next issue ... or furthering the story ... or both ... probably the latter, time flies when it comes to making this stuff. before I know it the buffer I've built up will be all done '_'

I finally got the gestures stage complete, that’s the most difficult time-consuming stage. Not just doing the gestural work but refining the gestural work, fleshing out what everything is supposed to look like. This stage should have been completed about a month ago. My schedule is just not manageable :S

Now I can do all the outlines for this issue, the rest of the comic should come much quicker now.
I just burned through my entire buffer, had about 1 months worth of pages and thought to myself  I should be ok with this much of a buffer, I don’t have to worry about running out of pages … but I did anyways -_-;;

Project wonderful went down about a month ago; ever since then my site traffic has dropped 5 times. It’s probably not the only thing that has hurt my page views that’s not to say this webcomic was particularly that popular, but if you love something …

There are probably several factors that has counted for my drop in web traffic Project wonderful going down, probably not advertising as often as I used to that is posting on various social media channels and a while back I hit a snag. I wanted to get one of the issues critiqued and edited and the feedback was amazing and I wanted to go back and edit it and attempted to do so however it was difficult.

Doing webcomics I developed a certain kind of flow/rhythm, stopping to edit everything caused me to disrupt that flow/rhythm and I haven’t been able to get it back. This is probably reflected in the latest pages, they don’t seem to be as strong.

I want to go back and edit stuff, but I’ll run into this issue which will disrupt the rest of the work making everything worse. It’s a bit of a paradox, stopping to make things better makes things worse :S
@Szalhi: Thanks, I really wish that I could dedicate more time and energy into this, but the way things are like now I consider myself fortunate if I can find a couple of hours of any given day to work on this. In order to get this going, I think I would need to dedicate at least 3 hours a day. :(
Just caught up, this comic has been amazing.
Ok I admit I couldn't imagine what a teenage girl could be fantasizing about.

I know the comic hasn't been active lately but I assure you that it's not dead yet ... (though it seems like it's sort of dying which is depressing :( )

Things in my life have been a bit hectic lately so I guess you could say I've been having trouble finding time to dedicate to it

Even though updates has slowed down a bit I assure you the comic is not dead yet

Ok so I guess updates may not go up every month, I'll post updates when I can ... I'm busy sorry I keep saying that. -_-;;

Comic news ... well I would still like to get something printed, I got a bunch of pages reviewed and am in the process of editing them. The reviews and critiques were pretty good I thought, though some of the feed back I received I'm not really certain what to do with them. I received like an essay on feedback O_O;;. So It's going to take me a while to weed through all the feedback. When I'm finished editing I'll look into getting something printed.

This issue was supposed to go up on Monday but I got the updates mixed up somehow. The prelude is nearly complete ... yeah it was kind of short don't know what to say about that but after the prelude I'll definitely start the High School chapter for real. I know I've been promising this for a year or more but this time for real.

This is more drawn out than '13 Reasons Why' @@.

@Guest: Hmmm ... Good question ... It's a little strange that I would have trouble answering it ... Guess the most accurate answer would be their was a set time, but as the story dragged on I kept changing things so now even I'm not sure how far in the future this is.

Maybe it's like the terminator franchise where they keep chasing the singularity back ^^;;

I just read through your entire comic. I really like the idea and plot. But it makes me really upset knowing she hangs herself. Is it too plot revealing to know how far in the future that is at this point?

@Sam Bronson: Lol
But: how *many* pieces?
It's been a while since I posted any kind of news or comments or anything like that ... heck it's been a while since I've drawn anything. I've just been busy with life and stuff. I think maybe I'll attempt to post some news like maybe once a month, and the news will be about what's happening with the webcomic.

This Annual is almost finished; I wasn't expecting it to be 100 pages. O_o;; After this annual I will definitely transition to high school. But about this High school arc, there's a problem with it I have been wrestling with for a while and I have yet to find a solution for it. Originally the comic was supposed to have a more ... mature tone ... but the story focusing on these kids made doing that a bit more difficult and somewhat creepy. But with High school there's more freedom or opportunity to work with a more mature story however when the first part of the comic has a less mature tone, then the lateral part has a significantly more mature tone it's well ... a bit jarring. Going from elementary to high school can be a bit jarring because you're sort of coming from this "Care bears" environment to this environment that's almost like "Akira." It's really weird, perhaps making that kind of transition would be appropriate for the comic.

So what else have I been doing for the comic this past month ... I've basically been going back through the comic and trying to edit many of my posts because apparently my grammar is bad and I can't spell. -_-;; I wanted to attempt to print a book and see if I could send it someplace. What else ... I'm aware that my Donate button isn't working, I'm not certain why it stopped working or how to fix that. I know that it used to work because I actually did receive some donations, it wasn't much and I wasn't really expecting much. I don't know if it shows but I'm actually quite appreciative of it, it's a motivational factor. It just amazes me that you can set something like this up and receive donations or generate any amount of revenue. Feels like it's bigger than life.
@Alterna: Sparkle sparkle. :)
Goodness, that's a sparkly attack :)
Thank you for the feedback ^_^
@Johng298: Ah yes thank you, I seem to have an issue with spelling apparently ... #'_'#

I could attempt to filter things through a spell checker but I don't think those things are fool proof, that and I'm somewhat concerned about involving others into my "brain child". I'm uncertain what else I can do in order to accommodate for that.

I appreciate the constructive feed back and criticism because it will help me improve and make a better product. Though I'm worried I'll receive some harsh feedback because I don't want to end up going to bed bawling my eyes out. :S
Cheap goods
obviously like your website but you have to check the spelling on several of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth nevertheless Ill definitely come back again. ekecddecaeec
I wonder how these TV Tropes things get started. Do creator have some motivation behind building them or do various readers build them because the web comic is relatively popular. This one isn’t … obviously …
