Of the various projects I've got going right now, the one I'm easily least passionate about right now is Night Shift. And personally, I feel like it's starting to affect my output. And yet, I'm still getting people tell me how much they like it, including a guy who, just a day or two ago, told me it was "better than ever". It certainly seems to be more frequently-visited than ASR, though it may be sorta tied with Pogo Stick.
Anyhoo. I don't want to let people down, so I'm going to open up the floor to discussion. I don't want to END Night Shift, but I was toying with a sabbatical. A month or two, maybe. And not anytime soon--I still have plotlines dangling. Maybe in the new year. But I'm starting to feel like the strip is sliding, and will continue to do so unless I put it on the back burner for a while.
I really am a scatterbrain. I get excited about whatever it is I'm NOT doing. So to be honest, I'd rather be doing ASR, Freak U. and another strip/graphic novel I've been chewing over (and overseeing Pogo Stick) without five new Night Shifts a week getting in my way. NS is *easily* the hardest to write...both ASR and Freak U have some very twisty plotlines planned, but I'm BREEZING through them. No sweat. But coming up with five punchlines a week is murder.
So, would you be crushed if NS took a vacation? More to the point, would you stop visiting the site? I *could* keep on with Night Shift, I just don't want it to suffer in comparison with my snazzy new ideas.
