Me either...until now. It's high time I cull the herd.
Now before you alert the authorities, let me explain.
Whew, there, I put it in print. Now it's a fact.
I AM WRITING A FREAKIN' NOVEL.
I've made a commitment - I expect you all to hold me to it...but don't become naggy bitches - that never works with me. I'll end up rebelling against all of you and never type another word of the story.
My protagonist is a female serial killer. She is NOT going to kill 'em with kindness.
Here's where I'm finding myself wavering. I know that this may be hard to believe, but I've never tortured and killed anyone...yet, though I must admit that I've had some revenge fantasies...but I digress.
What prompted this writing goal?
I was asked to join a critique group. The members are excellent writers, and are so encouraging and positive about writing. Writing is their thing. I want it to be my thing, too. I intend on taking full advantage of this opportunity.

With the critique group, I feel successful and accomplished (and I keep telling myself all these positive
Problem is that I'm afraid of the Google searches I may have to do (and worry about alerting Homeland Security or the FBI with my search history).
So, I'm coming to ask YOU for advice: What is the most excruciating murder method you can think of? It needs to be slow and painful...my character wants to enjoy the experience.
If any of you have personal experience knowing or being a homicidal maniac, that would be so helpful to me.
The Boy has given me some tips. He will come into my office (oh yeah, I have a home office...squee) and say, "Mom, let's play a game of Hide the Body. I'll go first. I have a bathtub full of sulfuric acid and a bone saw ready."
Maybe the authorities need to look at HIS search history. He said that was one of Jeffrey Dahmer's methods when he was not hungry for some flesh.
Then, today, I saw this image on Facebook, and realized that I'm not the only one who has these macabre thoughts:
Let's do this, shall we? It won't hurt a bit...
