So... why did I write Tale of the Manju
- Apr 2, 2012 11:53 AM
Hi everybody! For those of you who like Tale of the Manju, I figured I'd write a little bit on how this came to be and share some of my thoughts. Basically, I worked on getting this one-shot (more a children's book really) together for my wife. It was actually a present for her that I thought she might enjoy, and I took little inside jokes from our life and put it together into one story. I'd never thought really that many people besides us would like it, and I'm super happy that people do! = )
I guess the point of this entry in all, is just to encourage any lurkers out there to put their story together and share it with the MangaMagazine community when you can. It doesn't have to be perfect, it just have to be something you enjoy and put a piece of yourself into. Sometimes its intimidating just to get started, but its a great thing to do.
Overall, I'd say working on the Tale of the Manju has been one of the most rewarding experiences I've had for a while and I encourage everybody to create something, whether its a simple story you post in your blog or a full-on manga like many of the other artists here.
Anyway, hope you all enjoy the things I put up as I get time!
