Here is my article on office bullying. It felt like it took a long time to write. It did take longer, but honestly it wasn't that bad. I spent about five hours researching, outlining and writing. That's longer than usual for me to write an article, though honestly not bad.
When I first started on the subject, I felt like I didn't know anything about it. But as I researched, I realized I knew it all too well. Though I had always viewed office bullying as straight up harassment in the workplace. I talk a little about that in the article.
