I put up a thread at Writer’s Cafe the other day asking other writers if they Googled their characters’ names to see if they were famous already. You wouldn’t want to make up a character named Andy Jackson without researching the US President of the same name, right?
The conversation turned to Googling oneself, something I have done, just for kicks. There’s a successful engineer in Maine (or maybe it was Connecticut), a really good guitarist, a criminal mugshot I didn’t look into. It was interesting to see the different types of people with the same name as me.
So Google yourself. See where your name shows up.
You might already be famous!
