I signed up for NaNoWriMo, which is all well and good. My goal is to produce a follow up to Bad Traveler featuring a secondary character in a starring role. This is not my error, at least not yet.
No, my problem came when I sat down to do character research. I made a mistake. A big bad terrible mistake. I forgot to use an incognito window on my browser.
Going incognito sometimes presents problems, like I can’t link directly from an incognito window to Pinterest. Since I wanted to populate my newly created NaNoWriMo board, I didn’t want to be incognito the entire time. But then the mistake happened. I was so excited to see a link for “Fifty Beautiful Welsh Women” that I clicked rather than pasting into a incognito window. I ended up on a “lad-mag” site. The women were fully dressed and if you check out my board, you will see they are indeed beautiful, but I fear my advertising stream will switch over almost entirely to Viagra and body building techniques.
I already miss the pretty shoes and boots. Perhaps the new advertising stream will inspire a different type of story. In the meantime, I’ll try to practice safe pinning.
