So... sometimes life hits you hard like a ton of bricks. Today it was two tons for me. I just had a very serious talk over with my flight instructor, and it's clear to me that I have to make a lot of changes in my life if I want to succeed as a pilot with the timetable that I have left.
It's a very long story, but in short I haven't been taking my flight instruction nearly as seriously as I should have been. I realize that now, and I should have realized that way back in 2016 when I first started having delays.
I will be needing to cut out a lot of my hobbies. My part time job even, in fact. So it's with an extremely heavy heart that I have to announce that PMD: And All the Ways of Life will be on hiatus or at least an inconsistent schedule until the Fall, expecting September or October to return to normalcy
. I'll still be making and uploading pages a bit, but for all intents and purposes the project is on hold.
This is... incredibly hard for me to do. I know it doesn't look like it but that webcomic has been my passion for nearly two and a half years now--I had had it in the planning stage since mid-2016 even if the first pages didn't roll out until mid-2017. Putting it on hold like this physically hurts me to do. But to me it is symbolic of what free time I must sacrifice to bring focus onto my helicopter career. Trust me when I say that it is not the only thing that I need to put to the backburner for a while.
I am deeply sorry for this most unfortunate announcement. Please take my guarantee that the project will be back-- I've made myself a promise that I will finish this story, and while I'm always late, I never flake out on you guys. I'll still be around deviantART if anyone is interested in my other, less time-consuming work. Thank you all for your understanding.
