Who I am
Hello! My name is Erebus Esprit. If you're reading this then you probably have some idea of who I am, but allow me to introduce myself anyway. I am not a writer by trade. I do have some formal education on the matter as well as a history of personal research, creative decisions, and public feedback on literary matters. I have many opinions on how writing is and how it should be, but a lot of those fall under the category of 'this works for me, so I do it.' I will likely repeat myself whenever I talk about writing, but I'll go ahead and say it here and now: these are just my opinions. Take what works for you and do it.
Drops of Darkness
This is the blog away from the reviews where I can get a little more personal with all you lovely people. Drops of Darkness is going to contain writing advice, philosophical pondering, and a little bit of miscellaneous postings. I'll do my best to steer clear of contemporary politics and religion, I ask that everyone does the same in the comments if you decide to leave any. This is not because I don't believe these things shouldn't be talked about, but rather because I don't wish to talk about them and don't want to use my platform to do so. I find those issues rather divisive and counter-intuitive to what I am trying to do.
If you're wondering about the name for this blog, 'Drops of Darkness', it actually comes from my name. 'Erebus,' sometimes called 'Erabus,' is the Greek Personification of Darkness. Didn't think you were actually going to learn anything from a blog, did you? If you walked into this already knowing the namesake of Erebus, I just want you to know you're awesome. If you didn't, you're still awesome because now you know. Drops of Darkness is meant to be the place where I can get more personal, share some thoughts and ideas, and interact with all you lovely people. It has its own separate place so that those of you who are only interested in my books or my reviews don't have to be distracted by it. This section of the website is largely going to be text. I'm not going to flower it up with a lot of distracting images because you're here to read what I have to say, not look at other people's pictures.
I'm not going to promise regular blog schedules because this takes third priority after my day-job and writing my books, but I can promise that there will be future posts. If you're interested in following along, consider signing up for my monthly newsletter to stay abreast of not only the blogs, but also the books.
Thank you all, and as always: Peace and Love
