You Did What?
You've heard stories about authors' computers being confiscated by the authorities. A scary thought for two reasons: 1) who wants to be in trouble with the government? 2) who wants their computer out of reach for weeks and possibly months? Yuck!
I know if they came into my house and looked at my books I have on interrogation, poisons, following people, and survivalist manuals surrounding my computer, they would begin to wonder about me. Thank goodness I also have how tos in writing romances and grammar books galore that would surely give someone a clue of what's going on.
What got me to thinking about all of this? Actually it was an email conversation I had with my CP the other day. It went something like this...
CP: How goes it with you?
Me: Going good. I just blew up Mary's Lexus. LOL!
CP: Cool. A bomb?
Me: Yep! Her dead husband's boss is sending her a
message that he doesn't mess around. He wants
that evidence. Or at least she thinks it's him.
CP: You go girl!
See. So much glee in causing destruction. I do believe to be a writer you have to be a little warped. LOL!
What books do you have that would make people wonder about you?
