I went ahead and made an audio recording instead of writing an update on several things I wanted to get out to readers as well as our fellow writers. I love AniTAY with all of my heart, and I wanted to speak out about that love while addressing a recent issue that kept me from attending an AniTAY panel. I hope you are all doing well, and TL;DR it was really tough on me to not be able to attend a panel for something I care about so deeply but I have really big ideas ahead and I am hoping to convey that passion for everyone who writes with me and reads my work.
