It pains me to say this, but I have made the decision to put Lume on hold for now. I am by no means abandoning this project, but I just cannot bring myself to do anything with it now.
The vision that I have for Lume is too ambitious for me to accomplish as I am today. This project is incredibly important to me, and I do not want to ruin it by going in unprepared. I want to be able to do Lume justice and the pressure and fear that I have because of this critical requirement makes it difficult for me to write and draw. I need time to grow before I will feel comfortable taking Lume any further.
I am in a bind since I cannot grow unless I do something, and I cannot do Lume for fear of ruining it. Therefore, I have decided to put this story, that is so near and dear to my heart, on ice so that I can start fresh with new ideas. I need projects that I can feel comfortable making mistakes on, so that I can learn from them and to not feel obligated to take them so seriously.
One day I will come back and do this project right, but for now I need the time and space to make that possible.
