Aaaaaaaaaand As We Cross the Finishing Line… #TheAnimangaFestival

Today is the last day of the month long celebration we’ve called the Animanga Festival.

Much learning took place through this tour, which is a polite way of saying that much went wrong haha. For example, writing on the phone doesn’t work, and i had a sudden urge to disappear for a while.

But despite it all, it worked out…. Because of the participation.

So before we start for today a huge, huge,

  1. Although I feel a bit sad and a little guilty that I haven’t participated much in this festival, it’s really good to see all these posts and a sort of tribute to all things animanga. Congrats on a successful festival, Auri 😊

  3. It’s been lots of fun, it really has. Writing for each prompt, coming back for each week with something new, it’s just not something I’ve done with blogging for a long time. So, thanks for including me in on all the funβ€”you guys and everyone who participated in this awesome month are the best!!
