Hey all,

just checking in to say that I'm still alive and I haven't forgotten about SHD-WK -- but I also don't have an update.

I do still want to continue and hopefully finish some day; but I still can't find the time, energy, place, or tools needed to do so at this time.

I'd like to at least finish the writing, but have not made much progress on that front either.

If/when I do, should I
- just release the written notes?
- force myself to draw and publish them, no matter how far below my personal "good enough"?
- hope to find somebody else to draw them that I feel I can work with?
- something else entirely?

At this point, it will probably be years until even the writing is done. I do have notes and I know where the story is going, but I've been "out of the loop" for so long it will be hard to even get into it, if I don't have a few weeks/months at a time to devote to it, and with Real Life and health issues and family issues going on, it's just not happening right now.

Anyone who dropped by to read this, I do hope life is treating you well; and perhaps one day you'll check by once more and the site has indeed come back to life again!

(If it weren't temporarily dead, it would have lived for .... 16 years now. Where has the time gone? Spiky would be 16! .... when do dragons hit puberty?)

Hello, author.

I was just doing my daily rounds through my ancient bookmark folder of favorite webcomics, skipping over those that have (sadly) died, but it seems that I missed Order of the Stick by a few pixels and landed here instead. When I found this post and noticed the lack of replies, I couldn't leave without saying something.

I'm afraid I have no advice for you. Obviously I want to see the story continue in the best quality possible, but not if it means sacrificing your health or quality of life. Finding an achievable way of finishing the story isn't really something your audience can help you with.

What I can say is that it makes me very happy to hear you're alive, that you still care about this story, and that you still want to finish it some day. It must have been very discouraging to post this update and not get a single reply for two weeks. I just wanted you to know that there's at least one person out there who still thinks about you and Spiky from time to time, and hopes that one day you'll be doing well enough to achieve your goal. It's not much, but consider this small bit of encouragement a late birthday gift to the dragon, her struggling knight, and you.
