Oh my goodness reading back on this story you guys have NO idea how much I am cringing!!! (IF anyone still even comes back to read this oh my gosh??)
I totally do owe an apology to my readers though, I kinda left without any proper explanation which was a bit rubbish of me. Like what's the point said, JK Rowling would NEVER disrespect her readers like that
Basically, as I grew up and matured, 123Step stopped becoming a labour of love, and just... labour. I tried to push through and continue drawing it for you guys but in the end, the more work I got from real-life, the more of a burden 123S! became, and now I've totally out-grown the story and premise, even thinking about picking up the story now makes me pull a face.
I'm really sad because I know how much my fans liked it and it's such a shame that in the end I wasn't creating content that I would even enjoy reading myself, which is the truth! I HAVE played around with remaking it into something I'd passionately want to work on but then it would be a new story entirely and that might even disappoint you more.
I do have to say though, I absolutely don't regret making this comic (as cringe as it is for me now) and I want to be able to make it up to the fans.... as long as it doesn't involve me finishing this comic :P
But honestly, making this comic has given me such a great experience in so many things, it's given me confidence and a drive to pursue other projects (and see them through!!) - not only that but the readership of 123s has been SO so wonderful, I couldn't have asked for better fans!!
I've pretty much left SJ now and secluded myself to tumblr, twitter, instagram and facebook, so find me there *if* you are interested in seeing what I've been working on the past bajillion years!
Again, thank you guys so much for the love and support even years on, you have no idea how much that means to me - I'm incredibly sorry for leaving you in the lurch, but I have learned and I now know better about what I definitely want to pursue - I hope that people will be a fan of that too!
Lots of love,
WalkedAway/Mad/Pocketgrandma/Ashling :) xx
PS; Bare lols @ my last news post "I'm not gonna give up on this omg u guys" I was so naive and had noo idea what the future held
