I had such a wonderful time at Eroticon 2013 last weekend here in London.
It was the first event of it’s kind that I have ever been to and I must admit that I was initially so nervous about being amongst so many of the writers and bloggers that I have been reading and following on-line over the past year.
But Hubby and I met so many welcoming and friendly people, that we soon felt perfectly at ease amongst like minded visitors from all over the UK, Europe and America.
My decision to book for the conference initially was simply as a fan, just to meet and listen. (My own E-books, and my posts here, are actual extracts from my diary so I’ve never really considered myself to be an author . . . and I didn’t see myself as a sex-blogger either . . . though of course lots of people told me that I am!!!). So my reason for attending was just to be amongst people that I admired for being able to express all their thoughts and visions and experiences, so vividly and imaginatively.
But to discover that so many of the people I revere and look up to, are such nice and genuine (and yes everybody . . . NORMAL !!!) individuals . . . was truly, truly special and motivational.
The sessions I attended were all, without exception, fun and interesting and have made me realise how much more I need to edit and personalise my own writing. (Even as a “diarist” rather than an “author”).
So, (with special big kisses to Ian Jade and Rose Monrou) it was so lovely to meet such inspirational and talented people as Molly, Mina, Ruby Kiddell, Harper Elliott, Curious Muse, Ruby Goodnight . . . and so many more.
Just can’t wait until next year !!!!
