Another thought occurred to me why write about revenge? It is a touchy subject to some people. One thing is for sure some people out there have all been wronged one way or another. People deal with ways over being wronged in different ways for instance I write about it. Some people have the gift of letting it go, and getting over it quickly. Some people don’t though.
There are people that don’t think about how to get back at them and make them pay, but I do. It is not a good thing though to do that because some say it is giving them power over you.
The reason why people do not get revenge is simply because of fear that they will get sent to jail or worse. There are ways around it though if you think about it hard enough. If you write about it without using their names or appearances you can definitely get away with it. Some people do deserve to get their revenge. Bully victims should be able to get back at their aggressors because if they did less people would be bullied.
I love to write about revenge because there are many people out there that deserved to get it served to them. I write for the victims of bullying, and I write it because I am one of the writers crazy enough to go there. I love getting back at people.
I do not do it in real life because it is not worth it. Those people are not worth paying attention to either. I have it stay in the story world, and I love making stories where people get what they deserve because I see too many people in real life getting away with it.
I write about it to get back at those people who do mean things, and people who do crimes and get away with it. My character loves getting back at people especially the mean high school girls who bully people to death to the point where the victims kill themselves. I have the most fun with revenge stories, and I will hopefully have a collection dedicated to revenge out soon.
Until next time,

A timely post. My latest novel, Watch Your Back! covers this very subject – a brother and sister seeking revenge on a sexual predator who drugs and rapes her. It was probably the best 'fun' I've had for ages, pouring out my own desires into the words, carrying out all my fantasy revenges without hurting anyone.Jill x
I think I did a revenge thing in a short story once. I'm fairly ambivalent with revenge; I was teased badly in school, but the best revenge I can think of is being a better person than them and having a better life than them.
