Obsession with People I Don’t Actually Like


Have you ever noticed that it’s far easier to think about someone with whom you completely disagree? Sometimes, I absolutely despise a person because of what his life represents, the words that come out of his mouth, his complete lack of self-awareness… and yet, I really enjoy thinking about him.

According to Anne Perry, “Being likeable and being compelling are not necessarily the same thing.” (Foreword to WRITING THE BREAKOUT NOVEL).

Thus, let us tip our glasses to the folks fictional and non- who are altogether too interesting to completely abandon, but also big enough jackasses that we’d never consider them friends.
