In case you missed a previous post of mine, there’s a great convention happening in the UK called Eroticon 2012. It’s a place where sex bloggers and adult writers can get together, do a bit of networking, and take part in some amazing workshops. The £100 price tag may seem like a bit of a pocket hit, but it’s a lot less if you take into account that participants will be receiving a £50 voucher for LoveHoney. If you’re doing this as a business, like me, you can always take it off as a business expense!
I’m making a weekend of it, myself. I’ve bought my conference ticket, and just sorted out the train tickets to get me from my home in the High Peak to Bristol. I’m just waiting for another invoice to be paid off, then I’ll get my room at the Premier Inn taken care of too. I’m looking forward to meeting other erotica writers and putting some faces to the names that I’ve been reading for so long. I’ve had a look at the workshop offerings, and they’re just too good to choose from.

While jet lag can be quite the pain in the ass, I’ve found myself in that dream-like state where you come up with the most out-there concepts which seem to make perfect sense at the time. Lucky for me, I’ve been writing all of these down, in the hopes of when my post-Transatlantic-flight haze passes, I can use some of the ideas for story lines. At the very least, I’ll see something quite humorous, even if I can’t use them for any erotica story ideas.
Luckily, I’ve given myself two more days to recover back to normal before I start taking on any of the new projects that have come across my desk while I’ve been away. I know I wouldn’t be comfortable creating adult content in my current state!
I’m also going to take the time and trim some of the fat off. I have a few lingering contracts where the employer hasn’t been in touch for weeks, so I need to clear my plate and get going with newer and more naughty erotica and adult writing!

I was having a play on Twitter this morning (@RubyGoodnight, btw), and I came across a conference for erotica writers in the UK – Eroticon 2012. I had been looking for some kind of adult conference to go to for a while, but most of the social networking circles I run in center around the pornography side of the adult industry – not really a place for a writer like me. I’m quite excited about it. First payday in the new year will be going to paying for this 1 day erotica writer’s event!
Now, I just need to find a place to stay in Bristol that’s somewhat close to the venue, and sort out train times and whatnot. Maybe I’ll be able to find a few other cons like this in the new year.
