Meet the Boss

If you've ever had a job, you've probably had a boss (unless you're self-employed).  The boss character has a few universal characteristics.  Here are a few that come to mind right away:

  • leader
  • confident
  • can be pushy
  • judges their workers
  • demands production
  • can be intimidating

But the boss can also be fun to write.  Since they're in a leadership position, if you make your boss unconventional, they can come across as quirky yet effective.  Just realize that no matter what the boss in your story is like, they're in control and the leader, with those attributes, or they probably wouldn't have gotten the job to begin with (unless they know someone).

Have a great day!
