My mum is scared because she checked out my search history and there was some really weird stuff there from when I was doing research for my novel. She’s doubtful that research for writing should be this suspicious (eg. what would happen if someone disposed of a corpse in space), even for speculative fiction. Could you please assure that this is normal for writers?

neil-gaiman:

This is normal for writers. Novel research will take you down strange alleys and peculiar byways.

This is also normal for people who don’t write. You go places and wonder and wonder on the web because you are curious and because you are alive.
