Hi. Somehow, you’ve managed to come across my page. Kudos for doing so!

My name is Eric John Monier. I’ve been writing, at least on the amateur level, since the age of sixteen. The first time I ever wrote anything aside from school work was on April 10, 2003. What caused me to begin writing was a combination of medication or lack thereof, dreams I had experienced in the previous months, different literary works I was studying in High School English classes and, of course, just being young.

Due to the loss of a fellow aspiring writer on September 6, 2016, I’ve realized that I should not let this gift go to waste anymore, even if I never earn a solitary copper penny from it. Therefore, I created this webpage, so I can share what I write with the world.

I was married from 2010 to 2018 to a woman who didn’t appreciate or validate me at all. She hated most of everything I wrote. She was very cruel in so many ways. Needless to say for the last four years of that marriage, I wanted out but tried anyway because I wanted to honor God.

From the latter parts of 2018 until December 4, 2019, I was in a very loving relationship with a young lady who did appreciate and validate me in every way possible. And not only that, she reminded me of the good female characters in the stories I write, so I fell for her completely. But then she called it quits on me out of the nowhere.

I guess that means I am technically on the market.  However, I do have very specific standards, because I would rather be lonely, but free than tied down and accountable to someone who doesn’t make me totally happy.  Most of the [good] female characters in the stories I write tend to possess the same attributes of what I would look for in a future partner or spouse.

There are very certain reasons why I write and I realized this one day in 2009 while I was working.

These life events are [some of] the Factors that made Me want to Write or at least the ones I am comfortable enough to share.

Believe it or not, I used to Hate Writing because of my early education and upbringing.  It is but a miracle that I like to write now, much less that I keep an active blog!

If you don’t know me that well and haven’t figured it out yet, I will say that I am Indeed a Hopeless Romantic and I initially wrote love stories, but now have since expanded my horizons.

On this blog, I will be posting some of the articles, commentaries, essays, humor, personal reflections, product reviews and stories I’ve written (and re-written) over the years. If/when I come up with anything new, I will be posting that material as well.

By the way, here are some websites I frequently use that supplement my varying hobbies and interests…

I am a Prepper and have been since my early 20’s but always wanted to be the equivalent of one since my mid to late childhood.  Of course in those days “everyday carry” and “prepper” weren’t commonly known words and phrases like they are now.

Some of my writings may inform you, entertain you, provoke your thoughts, provoke your emotions or maybe all of the above.

I hope to vindicate most, but I know; in the process, I’ll unfortunately probably offend someone at some point eventually. I can live with that, for the most part.  Furthermore, to anyone whom I may offend, just know that I made you feel and think!

All in all, I hope you, the reader, have a positive reading experience on my blog and that you come back often!  May God richly bless you and may you be more enlightened than previously!
