As I look through twitter and other social media that I am on I reflect on what a lot of male friends I have. I have always had more male friends than female ones; it's just the way it is and every time I have tried to change it, it has gone sour. I like men so why be incongruent I am not a girly girl. I am a smart woman who thinks about sex.
Eroticon 2013 is only a few days away and I feel an energy bursting in me and I genuinely feel like I am going to explode. People have commented on it, I am more emotional and more volatile than my normal, passionate self. There are many things that I am looking forward to at Eroticon, mostly how to improve my writing as there is always room for improvement in my mind. However, it is the women that I will meet there that I yearn for. Smart, witty, intelligent women. Women who have made me blogging here such a soft place to land, women who both mentally challenge and stimulate me in ways that men just don't.
I have met some of these people before, in real life...Molly and her husband. There are people that I have 'talked' to via emails and skype. There are people that I have reached out an helped and I would like to see them now that they are in a better place. There are people who have reached out and helped me and I want to show them with pride how well I am doing now.
It is these women, who are not critical of their own gender or other women's intellect or perspective, but thrive at the meshing of knowledge. They celebrate it. I am going to spend my weekend trying to cram as much writing info into my head as possible but I will also spend it laughing my socks off, hugging, and possibly crying a bit too with these amazing women.
If some people see me as a writer of erotica and pedlar of smut who is only interested in men, catching men, snaring men, and shagging men, then not only are they missing the point but they are not 'seeing' me. Women shape me and create me. That is why women are important in my life.
