Hello! sorry for the radio silence here. I am checking in to explain why there have been so many extended hiatuses. I don't think I really talked about it here.
Over the past 5 years I developed a chronic illness that comes and goes in cycles. I have lost many months not just of work hours, but just life in general because it's both mentally and physically debilitating and painful. Sometimes it's all I can do to feed myself and crawl back into bed.
From examining the way my illness behaves, I believe it is directly linked to my mental/emotional health. I've been in therapy for those past 5 years and uncovering a lot, and learning about myself, and the way I was made. It's been a very painful journey of metaphysically taking myself apart, scraping out the rot, and adding in newer, healthier pieces, so that I can feel whole when I can manage to put myself back together again. To be honest, I am just hoping that my emotional healing will result in getting my physical health back.
But right now I'm still in pieces, and it's a very tall order to produce something personal like Cut Time, while my person is still in shambles. I also want to clarify that it's not the comic itself that is weighing me down. I always look forward to a time when I can actually work on my comic, enough to be posting regular updates. The previous string of updates was kind of a miracle to me haha.
Anyway, there is not yet an ETA for when chapter 5 will commence. I just wanted to establish that CT isn't dead, and that I appreciate all the understanding and support even though I didn't properly explain myself for a long time. If you find yourself very concerned about my absence, please feel free to check my socials.
