My best friend in high school had a boyfriend named Jason.
Jason cheated on her then bragged about it online.
On my own profile, I wrote something vague about how people disappoint me.
All hell broke loose.
Jason and his friends began an online assault against me, attacking me at every turn. Before long, it spilled over into the real world and Jason started following me to work and my hang out places. He even threatened to rape me.
Luckily, telling him that I was getting the police involved was enough to make him back off, and it died shortly afterwards.
When I told my Creative Writing teacher about what had happened, her advice was “Write it out.”
So I wrote Fade to White.
