Eroticon Virtual Meet & Greet

Thank you for taking time to cast your eyes over it. Now with less self-deprecation! Or at least more positivity!

NAME (and Twitter if you have one)

Hannah (@HannahLockhardt) but I may well be going by my human name at eroticon, to which there have been some not so subtle clues (ie when I forget to take off things with my name on them before taking photos)

What are you most looking forward to about Eroticon 2018?

*shy face* The kink lab?

[This question was what had put me off completing the meet & greet. I had stopped looking forward to the conference, it had become something I had misguidedly believed I should do and there was no way out that wouldn’t disappoint someone. And I waited and I withdrew and I hoped I would stop feeling that way. And I think that I can, before the 16th. I wanted to be honest though. These questions were hard.]

Addendum:
Now I’ve had time to think about it, I’m feeling more positive about the weekend. I’m excited to share a room with Other Hannah where we might get free tiny toiletries and biscuits!
I am looking forward to meeting people who have managed to have a massive impact on my life despite us not having had the opportunity to meet face to face yet. People whose work I’ve admired, people who have looked after me and people I have flirted with shamelessly. I will be collecting all promised hugs and doling out many more, I hope.

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

This is for Hannah

[Tried to stick the video for Call Me Al here, but WordPress is having none of it.]

 

What’s the first career you dreamed of having as a kid?

I was a ballet brat for 9 years (seriously, 3 through 12, exams and everything), and for the longest time I wanted to be a ballerina or a baker. I got to fulfill my bread-filled dreams during work experience which was partly spent in a traditional bakery.
The dreams of being a writer came later.

Weirdest place you’ve ever gotten up to mischief (define ‘mischief’ however you like…)

I have been wracking my brains and can only come to the conclusion that I have not gotten up to much mischief, and never anywhere remotely interesting.

Addendum: I developed a really naughty habit of flashing when on long drives with M. Thing is, he doesn’t run a car of his own, he always borrows his Mum’s. So I have been both topless and knickerless in my ex boyfriend’s Mum’s car…

Tell us two truths and a lie about yourself

I’ve had poems published in two local papers, one of which was about Yorkshire pudding
I’ve accidentally shoplifted twice. One time I was almost out of sight of Asda before I realised I had a rotisserie chicken under my arm
I can’t tell my left from my right. Never ask me for directions

Complete the sentence: I want…

You to be happy and content.

  1. I think the Kink Lab is a WONDERFUL reason to come to Eroticon and frankly, I’m disappointed I probably won’t get to do as much time in that part as I’d like. I hope you begin to feel better about attending as we get closer, and I can’t wait to meet you in person. ((HUGS))

    Oh mate I’m so sorry! I totally understand how you feel – I always struggle with answering questions like that because often the answer is ‘I am too nervous to say anything in case I forget to say everything I want’ or I just get a bit paralysed by the indecision and uncertainty. Rest assured that no one will have any expectations of you, we’re all just hoping that you can enjoy yourself and take something home from the conference that helps you as a writer – whether it’s inspiration, new friends, contacts, ideas, anything. Take your time with things and please don’t feel you have to do anything you don’t want to – everyone has their own pace and their own needs, and we’re delighted with people joining in at all, there’s no pressure to do everything. Really looking forward to saying hi at Eroticon, and if you’re worried about anything or you have any questions do give us a shout! xxx

  3. You have to know I am very keen to meet you, we’ve had so many nice DMs and you kindly did my #SoSS interview even when those questions felt hard too. I think every day you are being brave and strong because you have more things which challenge you than many of us. I love that you are sharing a room with the Other Hannah. Please find me, I hope I’m on your hug list xx

  4. I’m really glad you’re feeling more positive about the experience. I think Eroticon is hard for a lot of us and all for different reasons. Even though I was unable to speak to hardly anyone last year due to anxiety, nor did I attend everything, I gained so much from going. I really hope you have a lovely time.
