About

Hello there! A big welcome to you! Whether you're a newcomer here or long-time reader, I'm thrilled that you stopped by. Please pardon this fairly basic "About" page - I've never been the best at them!

A Little About Myself
- Eve Estelle isn't my actual name - it's a pseudonym, an alias, a pen name.

I've been blogging steadily for about two years now, but had a previous 6 months or so of experience before Edge of Night.

- I write for fun. I write to improve. I'm an experimental writer, trying out all sorts of different styles, forms, and subjects.

- Though most of the time I do try to adhere to them, I sometimes deviate from the rules of writing. I don't believe in boundaries when it comes to creativity (but certainly the result isn't always pretty!).

In other news,

I fail terribly at planning anything in advance.

- I'm a very reserved person, especially online. Still, I love people!

- I'm from the Midwestern U.S.

- When it comes to movies, books, etc., my tastes vary widely - anything from fantasy, to sci-fi, to mystery, to comedy; classics, modern, silly, stupid - you name it. Except romance.

- Besides writing, I love to stargaze, hike, take pictures, horseback ride, and I'm a lifelong gamer.


About Edge of Night
Focus

Edge of Night is a blog that focuses on writing. It's a place for me to publish my poems, short stories, and other works online. While the main topic is writing, I do post periodically in other areas.




Why I Started It


I'd been wanting to share my writings with the outside world for a while - I wanted to hear what people thought; what they liked, what they disliked. I wanted to find out what I needed to change, to improve in each piece of work. Before this blog, my files would simply gather dust in Microsoft Word, until I lost the files altogether. But with it, I'm able to interact with wonderful people from around the world who can help me see the good and the bad in my writing - and in return, I can do the same for them, if they'd so like.
Fun Facts About Me & My Blog
 Created: October 2014

For those in my personal life, the fact that I blog is a secret (shh!).

 I'm a Whovian, Sherlockian, fan of Supernatural, and Person of Interest.

 I love the paranormal, supernatural, and any mysteries of the kind.

 I prefer my glass half full, thank you very much!

 Although I'd love to travel, it's unlikely to take me far (so far: Canada).

✧ I "patiently" waited ten years for 2016's Warcraft film.

 I chose EoN's name without thinking about it - I was tired of being indecisive.

 I find dark pieces especially fun to write, but they aren't usually personal.

 You can probably tell that I'm a fan of Edgar Allan Poe.

  1. Eve Estelle... I've never enjoyed reading anybody's about page as much as I have enjoyed reading yours. I'm a new blogger and I used to feel until now that about pages are meant to be boring but after seeing how creative you have been here, I'm inspired to make my about page better. Thanks for the inspiration. :)

    1. Your comment made my day, Aradhana. :) Thank you. About pages can be anything you'd like them to be. It's very easy to think you should go straight to the generic style, but it's a page about you and your website - it should express who you are, and show off some of your unique style! Can be very hard to think of what to put in there, but hey.. You can always change it up.

      Welcome to the world of blogging, by the way. :) I'm certainly no expert, but feel free to drop me a message if you ever need help or have any questions!

    1. Welcome to my little writing haven, Vani! :) I'm thrilled you like it! Thank you. Yes! Aren't there just so many fantastic writers out there? It's great, although surprisingly difficult to find them sometimes. Always fun to stumble upon them!

      Like I said on Twitter (but didn't have enough space to elaborate on lol), I stopped by your own blog and loved what I saw of it. I've been off and on busy all day today, but I plan on returning ASAP and leaving a comment or two! :) Thanks again!

  9. You don't know how deeply I search to find blogs like these... :D XD
    I found yours through someone's button swap page. I think I should make one too!
    Thank you! I also want to read more of your poems and stories. :))

    1. You definitely should! They're such a great way to discover other blogs! And they're pretty fun to keep up with, honestly. :) You get to see all these creative little buttons, exchange them. Let me know if you do end up making one - I'd be happy to add yours!

      Delete
    2. I will let you know! I have made a page already, where I have added your button. My button isn't really working, so I will inform you about it soon!
      And I really love the look of your blog. :)) It's very neat- one of the reasons I decide to read a blog. :D

    3. Aw thank you! :D Most of the design work was done by another wonderful gal and fellow blogger; unfortunately she's stopped blogging a few months ago. I do agree that she did a great job!

    4. What a sad thing to hear. I hope she gets back here on the blogosphere. I love what she's done to your blog.

    5. I do, too! I'd love to see her come back. I understand having enough of something, though.. Maybe she'll get the urge to start up again sometime. :)

    2. Thank you...but the link is wrong. :(
      I corrected the code on my blog. Fix it if it's possible..:)

      Delete
    3. Hm.. I went and fetched your new code, but it still keeps correcting the link to "https://www.blogger.com/www.plainjane.in". Tried simply deleting the blogger part, but it pops right back in. What program/website are you using to create your buttons?

      Delete
    4. Ah! Think I got it! Not sure what was going on there, but it eventually let me put in the right address. Should be fixed now. :)

    1. Ahaha! Are you one as well? :) I barely made it into Canada, but I'll still take it. My family and I took a trip to Niagara Falls when I was little. <3 It was gorgeous.

      Thank you! Sounds great, I'll hop on over and grab yours to put up. :)
