I am convinced my browser history has been flagged, and some overworked, underpaid NSA lackey scrolls through my Twitter feed while waiting for my next search to sound the alarm in the bunker he is confined to.
If you also write, your agent is probably tossing darts at the same board mine is. Our internet searches are landmines waiting to explode.
Below are a few of my recent searches.
Subliminal versus supraliminal messaging
What sound does a moose make
How the world ends
How long do dead bodies smell
awhile or a while
Take down an airplane without using a bomb
What does Alaska smell like
Can you kill someone with a cellphone
How high is Denali
How to write a great sex scene
Can you hack into an airplane’s systems
Types of rifles
I am positive more than one of these has sounded the alarm. I would not be surprised to arrive at the airport someday, only to find out I have been added to the No-fly list. It is amazing the peculiar details authors must seek out to make their work authentic.
I hope my use of thesaurus.com offsets the other ones.
What are some of your wildest internet searches?
