#IWSG - November - What's in your search history?

Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds! 
Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer - aim for a dozen new people each time - and return comments. This group is all about connecting!

Twitter hashtag is #IWSG.

I'm convinced that I'm on an FBI watchlist. Okay, maybe I just really hope that if the FBI has been following my crazy Google searches they're fully aware that I'm a writer and not a serial killer.

Honest.

  1. Top hits of 2007. Yeah, only a writer would care!

  2. Ha, I expressed a similar concern. My crime thriller days are behind me - I realized it's not my forte - but the digital footprint is supposedly there forever. Definitely counts as an insecurity!

  3. Hilarious graphics! Not gonna lie--I kind of enjoyed alarming my ex with my research into poisons, but the only murders I've carried out were strictly on the page. Happy writing in November!

  4. LOL Considering werewolves don't exist, I bet most of that was made up.

  5. It's said that Google's auto suggest is based on what people in your area are searching. Based on that second image, you may want to keep an eye on those around you.

  6. Top hits of 1980 on mine. I have got to get my book published so I can prove I'm a writer, and not just a killer posing as a writer. Oh wait, it's possible to be both, I think.

  7. I'd have to wonder if the FBI has a tab in their files simply titled "Writers" that they put all of us in so they know the chances of us doing something we're googling isn't that high.

  8. Not so far fetched, being investigated, given the present climate of ‘false news’ and distrust.

  9. Hahaha—I was going to use a lot of those memes in my post today.

    Happy writing!

  10. I have a triple whammy when it's comes to being on the FBI watch list. I won't reveal the other two, but my search history doesn't help!

  11. Thanks for the laughs, Heather! It's that time of night when I needed some! I hope you've had a fun IWSG Day!

  12. LOL! I think all writers feel like we must be on some watch list.
