What are you most looking forward to about Eroticon 2018?
Of course, meeting old friends and connecting with people who I’ve spoken to online or who’s work I admire is something to look forward to – and I know from experience the conference will deliver this. But at last year’s Eroticon I learned a lot of new things, thought about things from different perspectives and embarked on things in writing and drawing workshops that were new and brave for me. I don’t yet know what these new things will be this year, but I’m really excited to find out. There were a couple of things that I was a bit too reserved to join in with last time (including this Meet and Greet exercise) I am emboldened this year!.
We are creating a play list of songs for the Friday Night Meet and Greet. Nominate one song that you would like us to add to the play list and tell us why you picked that song.
Long Train Running by The Doobie Brothers. It’s happy and funky and dancy and retro, so I’d be happy for that song to represent for me!
What’s the first career you dreamed of having as a kid?
When I was very little I wanted to be a nun, I think it was the outfits, the sense of inner, calm strength, and maybe a Julie Andrews thing. I hadn’t really thought it through.
Weirdest place you’ve ever gotten up to mischief (define ‘mischief’ however you like…)
Back of a classroom. With a teacher.
Tell us two truths and a lie about yourself
I worked on a Bond Movie.
I have 4 Kidneys.
I used to be a member of the International Bungee Jump Display Team.
Complete the sentence: I want..
(I thought one of my answers should be a haiku, so here’s one with an “I want” angle)
Artfully staged in
In Tumblr-style monochrome is
Not how I want it
Your ‘I want’ is brilliant. And I have to wonder if your Nun career dreams also involved singing on mountain tops because if so I can relate
I understand the nun thing – having been to a convent school – I thought about it for a bit – kinda felt it would be safe and secure! 😉
LOVE your ‘I want’! And I am a massive fan of Julie Andrews in sound of music too so I can totally understand your nun-ambitions =) x
The nun thing actually made me chuckle a bit. I’m also going to guess the last one is your lie?
I’m glad you have joined in with the meet and greet this year. Your mischief answer is one of my favourite fantasies, unfortunately not a reality for me though! I hope you have a wonderful time at Eroticon!
