Still Alive!

Hi everyone! Just letting you know that I'm still alive, and doing better than I was a week ago, though perhaps not quite back to where I'd like to be.

After limping along for a while, and producing too many strips I really wasn't happy with, and wasn't having as much fun doing, I finally realized I'd been feeling far too down for far too long, and I just missed feeling good, happy, and creative... and maybe I could actually do something about it. So I went to the doctor, changed my meds (I'm on a mood stabilizer for my bipolar now), and I'm trying to make some positive changes in my life, think about what will help me feel better, what I want to do, etc...

In regards to that: I do want to make some changes to Everwas in the future, to make it more fun again. More happiness, more snuggles and sexiness, more having a good time. No more sad, heavy storylines, at least for a while, I hope. Sort of a re-concepting of the characters (appearance, personality, etc) and the strip in general. Hopefully nothing will be too jarring, and I hope you'll all still enjoy the characters as much as ever!

I'll write more about this later, as I think more about what I want to do.

Overall, though, I want to thank you all for your caring and support. Thank you for your e-mails, your PMs, your kind words and your patience. It's meant so much to me so far, and I appreciate it very much! I'm so grateful for all of you. Thank you!

Glad to hear you're doing better! Can't wait for all new improved Everwas! Unless the waiting is for you to get better, I can wait for that, but you know, figures of speech and all.

Hehe! Thank you very much! ;)

Yeah, right now I'm just focusing on feeling better, so that I can start focusing on making the comic better. I'm kind of sad to not be posting updates, since everyone seems to enjoy them so much; I'm very glad for all the patience and good wishes in the meantime, though. :D

Aww, that's incredibly kind of you, JPoPP! Thank you! :D

I'm doing much better than I was, that's for sure. Since changing things up, I feel much more cheerful most of the time, and more like my old self. :) I'm a little 'moody' sometimes, but not too bad, and I'm still trying to work through some creativity and work issues, which is why I haven't been posting strips so far.

I'd like to start posting some things again, but I may just have a few fun, 'filler' strips for a bit to try and get back into drawing mode, before I get back into the actual storyline.

Thanks again for asking, and for being patient with me. :D
