Writing about bullies doesn’t come easily. We want to put that behind us. We wonder, “Who wants to read that?”
Probably most people.
Whenever we get together and share memories and stories, encounters with belligerence, arrogance, or outright bullying invariably come up. It’s always a compelling story.
Our listeners commiserate. They respond with their own stories. This happens when we write too. When we write about bullies and persecutors, we connect with readers and start conversations. We see new facets of each other’s personality.
