The "Basic Instinct" Defense

As I remember the movie, Sharon Stone's character says she'd have to be an idiot to write a book about killing someone and then kill them in just that way. This perversely then serves as a defense against the charge.

Turns out real life works that way sometimes too.

OK, but I'd still rather watch Sharon Stone testify in court if it's all the same to you.

I hope they've got something more to go on than her books and blog! If she's been dreaming up the perfect crime all this time, she kind of dropped the ball in the final act.

If the writer channels an entity that wants to kill someone, it will not be the writer that wants to kill someone but the power and spirit that they use in their body that wants to. And if said entity happens to begin taking over as in hacking a computer remotely... well, then the sky is the limit.

Cybercrime sees crime being committed on other people's computers all the time and the users often don't know about it.
