Changes as the tide
Okay so some things that are gonna happen soon
I'm going to kind of gut the comic because I've had some people point out that there are pacing issues that can easily be remedied. It's not going to be too serious, mostly I'm going to be combining smaller pages into bigger pages so that the slower parts of the story don't take so long and require less clicks for the reader (THAT'S YOU!!!).
And if you're partial to the first chapter, read it while it's still there, because I'm going to cut it entirely. In all honesty, it has its moments, but as the primary narrative building block of my story it is painfully weak in many regards and just makes it take longer for the reader to get to the actual plots. I wrote it years ago before I got into the groove of Writing For Webcomics, and it no longer serves a purpose.
With the pages that remain, I'm going to combine some of the chapters because I think that will also help unify the plot a little bit.
So, some pages getting combined, first chapter getting cut, chapters getting all squishy. I'm gonna keep putting out updates whenever possible. I want this to be a good comic that people read and want to come back to as well as something that I can be proud of, and I think these are some good steps to help me on my way.
I aim to have these changes in place by March, so uh, get it while it's hot, or something. Thanks for reading Loud Era, and I'll see you all soon.
