Something a little different this week. I’m coordinating my blog of today—June 13—with that of my Okie writer friend Mark Widyr’s post of June 20.
AI GENERATED POST-APOCOLYPTIC STORY IN WILLIAM FAULKNER STYLE
In the desolate wasteland of a post-apocalyptic world, where hope seemed as scarce as water, there existed a curious relic from a bygone era—a video, haunting in its beauty and resonance, that captivated the hearts of the survivors. Its origins were as mysterious as the cataclysm that had befallen humanity, shrouded in the depths of forgotten cyberspace. The video spoke of a forgotten past, a glimpse into a world that had once thrived, a testament to the fragile nature of existence.
The impact of AI on our lives has already begun to evidence itself. Some applications promise tremendous benefits for the human race, others might be viewed as risks. Some of my friends who have read these stories feel they have no soul, no feeling to them and point out that were Faulkner and Hemmingway never written, the computer could not imitate their style. To me, that’s little consolation. Unlettered individuals can now create stories that are at least readable without the skills to do so. Merely punch a few buttons on a computer, and there’s a story.
Stay safe and stay strong.
Now my mantra: Keep on reading and keep on writing. You have something to say… so say it!
