If you're a writer, it's unlikely that you're a terrorist. But your Google search history probably tells a different story. Gotta write a good story that people would actually want to read, and that takes research.
Research like . . .
1. Torture Methods: Maybe your villain is into that kind of thing and your character/character's loved one is captured by them. Of course you want to find the worst and most painful torture method.
2. Bomb Building for Dummies: It is essential for this part of the story that one character or another builds a bomb. Except you don't know how, and you can't fake it because no one would publish it, or no one would find it believable. What do you do? Well hello, Google, miss me?
3. Psychological Repercussions of This or That Traumatic Event: Your character has been through Purgatory and you want to make sure you've got their new mentality right. Not as big a deal as building a bomb or torture, but you know, still suspicious.
4. How Much for a Hitman?: You need to know because this is how your story is. Maybe your MC is a hitman, or is hiring one. In any case, it's good to know much an average hitman costs. Doesn't mean it look good on your Google search history though.
5. Weapons: If you don't know what you're doing with a gun, then your character won't either. How can your story be good if the character who's supposed to be an expert in the way of guns isn't? This also applies to swords, daggers, crossbows, and other types of weapons.
In short, this probably looks like the Google search history of a terrorist. I guess that makes writers the terrorists of fictional worlds. ;)

A good chunk of you already know who I am, considering I sent you here, but for those of you people who found my blog by accident, let me introduce myself. My name is Madison Anderson and I was born and spent little more than half my life in Oregon (US for those of you who don't know and don't want to look it up), so it's no wonder I like the rain. I'm obsessed with Disney (bought myself a Woody doll and I'm so happy :) ) and books. I'm now into drawing, and whenever I get around to it I plan on selling my work.
