For some reason, I’m hung up on what AI can mean for the future of writers. As a further exercise, I asked ChatGPT to create a story according to the following story according to the instructions you will see at the beginning. It also titled the story, all in about 30 seconds. Please, please, give me your reactions.




An AI-Generated Story

Instructions: Create a mildly erotic about Jake and Chuck, two young soldiers who find themselves becoming involved emotionally:

 Jake and Chuck were young soldiers, both serving their country with unwavering dedication. They were stationed at a remote military base, surrounded by the rugged beauty of nature. Days were long, and the nights felt even longer. The constant adrenaline of their work brought them close together, forging a bond that transcended their camaraderie.

 One evening, after a particularly intense mission, they found themselves sitting alone under the starlit sky. The night was calm, and a soft breeze rustled through the leaves of nearby trees. As they shared their deepest fears and dreams, they discovered an emotional intimacy they had never experienced before.

 Chuck's eyes, usually fierce and focused, softened as he spoke about his family back home. The vulnerability in his voice made Jake's heart ache with compassion. Without realizing it, Jake reached out and placed a comforting hand on Chuck's shoulder. Chuck turned to look at him, and for a moment, time seemed to stand still.

 Their eyes met, and something shifted between them. There was an unspoken understanding, a connection that went beyond words. In that moment, they both felt a longing, an attraction that they had never acknowledged before.

 As days turned into weeks, their bond only deepened. They found solace in each other's presence, seeking comfort after difficult missions, and sharing laughter during rare moments of respite. The line between friendship and something more became blurred, and they both hesitated to address the growing feelings within.

 One evening, after a particularly grueling day, they found themselves alone in the dimly lit barracks. The air was charged with tension, and they could feel the electricity between them. Without saying a word, Jake moved closer to Chuck, their bodies drawing together as if pulled by an invisible force.

Their lips met in a tender, hesitant kiss. It was a moment they had both yearned for, yet feared. But as their lips melded, they felt a surge of passion that swept away any doubts or hesitations. Their hearts raced, and the world around them faded into the background.

As the night wore on, they explored each other's bodies with a mix of passion and tenderness. It was an intimate dance of two souls finding solace and passion in each other's arms. They discovered a deep connection, both emotionally and physically, that left them breathless and hungry for more.

In the days that followed, their relationship blossomed into something beautiful and unique. They continued to serve their country with dedication and honor, but now they had something precious to hold onto during the darkest of times - each other.

Their love remained a secret, known only to them, as they navigated the complexities of military life. But they found strength in their shared moments, their stolen glances, and the comfort of knowing they were not alone.

Jake and Chuck's journey was one of emotional discovery and love amid the chaos of war. They were soldiers, bound by duty, and yet their hearts had found a home in each other. Together, they faced the uncertainty of their future, knowing that their love would endure, no matter where life's path might lead them.


Not certain why this AI-generated story bothers me so much. Am I looking into the future where there’s no longer room for writers? This story certainly doesn’t do it. It’s too pat, too soulless, but this is early in the AI game. Likewise, you can edit these stories, so perhaps someone who’s not particularly skilled could insert a little human feeling and action and convert a machine’s story into an acceptable narrative. I don’t know. But I think this will be my last AI story for a while.

 Stay safe and stay strong.

Now my mantra: Keep on reading and keep on writing. You have something to say… so say it!
