I write psychological thrillers. Some might even call them Crime Thrillers. Do you know what that means? It means I have to look stuff up. Even though I was a Biology major with minors in Psychology and Criminology, I still have to Look. Stuff. Up.
Recently I needed to know a little something about heroin. I needed to know about its different forms, what it looked like, and how to prepare it for injection. Some of this was accomplished through asking certain friends and acquaintances with some knowledge on the subject (Second-hand knowledge, of course). The rest was done via numerous web searches. Oy, the internet thinks I’m a dope fiend…
You know what else I had to look up? Under what circumstances an individual could survive a self-inflicted gunshot to the temple. Oy, the internet thinks I’m a suicidal dope fiend…
Tis my life, ladies and gentleman. Oh, and I can’t even fall back on my charitable donations to the Purple Heart as a testament of my good character. These are some of the titles I donated the other day:
- The Death Penalty in America
- Murder 2
- A Scream in the Dark
- Killers at Large
- Murderers Row
- Female Serial Killers
- Serial Killer Files
- Born Evil
- The Creation of a Serial Killer
- Without Conscience
- The Sociopath Next Door (Those last four titles are probably the creepiest.)
And this was all within the last month or so…
Sometimes I think I should write about puppies…
Or add a disclaimer to everything I do so I don’t come across as a sociopathic, suicidal, dope fiend…
What does the internet think of YOU?
I know what you mean. I worry if someone did a search of my Internet history I’d look like a psychopath. But when one writes thrillers, especially those involving killers, weird searches are bound to occur. 🙂
True. But I think I would rest more easily if my books were published. Then I’d have proof, haha.
I know exactly where you’re coming from. I’m still tring to figure out how I can find it what it feels like to slice someone in half with a sword….or rip out someone’s heart with your bare hands. Any ideas?
Umm, no. My current villain isn’t quite so baroque, or messy, haha.
Ha ha ha, that is sooo funny! 😉
Thanks, I try!
I know you do honey, and it’s always so entertaining. I think you should write chick lit 😉
Ha! If you said that to anyone who knows me personally they’d die of laughter. I’m the biggest tomboy. That would be like saying Sylvester Stallone should write a book about quilting, cookies, and kittens.
Lol, just coz you’re a tomboy doesn’t mean you can’t write chick lit 😉
Look at all the geezers out there who write romance? Big macho men some of em 😉
Really? I had no idea!
If I wrote chick lit, I wouldn’t even know where to start. Shoes? Big closets and clothing sales? Boys?
Ahhhhhh, got you thinking now haven’t I? 😉
No comment. 😉
If my search history was looked at, people would think I’m way into BDSM and swinging smh. I mean yea some handcuffs are nice every now and then, but not as a life style. At least not yet j/k 😉
Lmao! I hope you have a separate computer from the kiddies…
The internet thinks I’m only interested in sports, music, and how to spell things.
Lol, mine thinks I’m interested in sports too. But it wonders why I haven’t committed my teams’ schedules to memory yet.
