The Bully Inside - a Thought Monster

For 2 months after I sent my first book into the world, I felt so stuck.

It was weird and hard. How could I feel like this after giving so much time and love to something that I created and was so proud of? Someone told me that it’s normal to feel down after completing a big project like publishing a book.

My Truth About Bullying

When I was in 4th grade, I bullied someone.

So hard to admit this, but it’s true.

The girl I bullied was very pretty. She had long, curly, gorgeous locks. Her stay-at-home mom put her hair in a bow each day. Her clothes were new and clean and pressed, many of them hand-made by her mom. She was quiet and sweet. A living doll. In my young mind, she had the whole of her mom’s attention.
