Too slowly. Skip the boring stuff.

Too fast! See, if you go into even more detail, the story will never end, and that's a good thing too!

I dunno. I guess it was OK at 4 updates a week, but now everything takes twice as long ...

Hi all, time to ask for opinions!

We all know that the SHD-WK storyline pacing has been at snail's speed for the past 4 years, and having reduced the update frequency from 4 to 2 a week now, I'm wondering if I should speed things up a bit after all. I do want to end the comic some day ...

What are your thoughts on this? Are things proceeding too slowly? Should I drop most of the talking and cut right to the action? (Not like there's much action in SHD-WK anyway ...) Or would you rather see even more character interaction even if it means travelling even more slowly?

Are you as worried as I am that with only 2 updates a week, things will get slooooooow and boring really fast? :/

If at some point in the storyline I reach a point where I could skip 3 or 6 months, should I do it, or would it feel like something is missing?

Pacing was good when the comic updated four times a week. I wouldn't start running it in double speed now just because there is half as many updates in week though. It would be pity to miss background story.

So, keep the current spped and be careful not to slow down the pace more.
