Yes, make sure to take care of yourself. Look, I decided to quit just reading the comic to come here and say that, so you'd better do it! :D

I've subscribed to the RSS feed for the comic so I'll see when you do come back.

So #1000 will go up next, and after that, the plan is:

- take some time off (I have a few medical procedures ahead next week and a bunch of other stress triggers too, so the timing for the break is pretty much perfect)

- after that, write the scripts for at least 6 months worth of comics

- after that, do some long overdue changes to the website/scripting

- after that, draw at least 3 months worth of comics

And then SHD-WK will resume. It will happen May 1st at the very earliest, but that date is rather unlikely; I'm aiming more for "some time later this year". I'll keep you all updated in this thread.

At least I made it to #1000. For the longest time I didn't think I would!

Congratulations on #1000, that is quite a lot of comics and a lot of time well spent. Good luck with your plans, health-, comic-, and otherwise...

Looking forward to the return of SHD-WK. I hope things are going well health-wise, ak-ryuu. :)

Greetings from Austria!

Although I am really not good at posting in forums, and therefor don't really do it, I think it is probably the right time to show there is still a fanbase for your comic even here in austria.

We are hoping and waiting patiently for the return of shd-wk.

Best wishes

Jakob

I can already say that it won't be in May.

I'll have a hospital appointment at the end of next week, after that I'll have a better picture of how this year will go for me.

The plan is still to concentrate on writing the script as far as I can first, and then get back to drawing, so that I hopefully won't have to have another long break after this one; but this one might end up quite long. I still definitely want to finish the story though, it just has to be fairly low on my priority list for now.

GoodThoughts continuing for your health. I checked back for the first time in a month or so to find this post.

Just be aware that you have friends wishing you well, and (patiently!) looking forward to more of the story.

{{Hugs}} offered if you want them...

Hi guys,

I bring only bad news. Well not only -- healthwise, I'm doing quite OK at the moment, so that's something. (Thanks for all your well wishes!)

a) I still can't say when I'll be able to continue. I have some major )(positive) changes in my private life that are taking priority, and I'm not finding the time or energy to work on the comic. I do still sincerely want to finish the story, just ... not now. And I don't know when. So it might be a long time.

b) I'm having major problems with one of my web/domain providers that I'm currently trying to solve, but I'm not too confident that it will all work out. If the worst case happens, I might lose the shd-wk.com domain as well as the forum. The webcomic is hosted elsewhere, and will stay online, although possibly only under its original address http://shd.khrysh.net/ -- so you may want to bookmark that. I'm trying to get the shd-wk domain transferred there, but I'm not sure if I will have the energy/ability to move this forum.

I'll tell you more when I know more, if I can ;> Thanks for reading!

I'm really glad your health is better, and that the hiatus is continuing on account of positive changes in your life. I don't check in often (I got an email notification of a response here), but I'm keeping shdwk on my favorites list and will check in occasionally. It's not as if there aren't lots of other things to keep me busy!!

Yes, I'm sure we all are glad to hear improvment in your health. And I'm sure when you say "long time", its months and not years. Be safe mate.

I got the Internet stuff mostly sorted out, so I don't expect any problems on that front anymore.

I'll have to sit down and think about what to do with the comic and how. I know it's really not the best spot in the story for a long break, but I'm not sure that there's a much better one anytime soon storywise either. I probably should have gone for the long break the last time I had a break, but I really really wanted to reach #1000 at that point ...
