Hey everyone. As you all have noticed by now, it's been over three years since I last updated the comic. Like so many webcomics, life just got in the way and keeping going wasn't sustainable anymore. To be more blunt, I burned out. I used to live and breathe making this comic, and after years of fighting to keep up, I just couldn't anymore. As I mentioned in my last few posts on here, I got sick. Bedbound for two months, barely able to keep myself fed, constantly in pain and exhausted sick. When I finally recovered enough to start working again, the idea of going back to making the Weave was enough to make me cry. I had pushed so hard and so long to make this comic that there just wasn't anything left in the tank. 

And then, I got lucky. Despite it being 10 months into a global pandemic, I found a new job that let me keep making art while actually paying me enough to not only keep a roof over my head, but to rest and recover from working myself deeper and deeper into the hole I had dug myself. But if I was going to do that, I had to let go. I had to let the Weave end. 

It was the last thing I wanted. It was something I had told myself over and over again that, I would never do, that I would keep fighting to tell this story until it was truly finished, but I just couldn't. And I was so, so ashamed of it. I know a lot of you have wondered where I went, and why I never posted anymore, and the answer is simple: I was embarrassed. I felt like I was letting myself down, and that I had lost my entire identity. Without the Weave, who was I? Even more so, I felt like I had let all of you down. Every one of you who read my comic meant the world to me, and here I was, giving up. Disappointing you. I couldn't handle that, and with every day that passed, my silence just grew louder. I was more and more paralyzed by the fact that I couldn't admit to all of you that I had needed to move on, and that my heart just wasn't in comics anymore. So the silence grew, and eventually years passed.

I don't want to stay silent anymore. I don't want to keep feeling a pit of anxiety in my stomach whenever I think about posting. I want to forgive myself, and move on, and make new things. So, here it is: The Weave, as it was, is over. I don't plan on making any new pages. I want to finish the story eventually, but I don't know when that will be or what it'll look like, but I want to be able to look back on the Weave and feel proud of what I've made, even if it didn't turn out how I wanted. I want to keep telling stories and making art, but at my own pace and in a way that is sustainable and makes me happy. I don't know what's next, but I'm so grateful to everyone of you for having been part of my journey.

Thank you, everyone.
