An Amazing Tool!
AI is an amazing tool.
But I’m not worried about it taking over for writers.
Not one bit.
Today I tried to get AI to create some insults for me.
I was going to work them into a humorous piece.
Its response was to refuse my request because it would be inappropriate and unethical to generate that kind of language.
And then it lectured me about being kind to others.
To test the system, I asked for some Shakespearean insults.
It gave me a few, but there was still a warning at the end about being kind to others.
The thing is, if you’re a writer, you have to write about all kinds of topics.
You can’t write a murder mystery without a murder.
You can’t write a romance without, *ahem*, romance.
You can’t write a conflict without conflict.
The joke among writers is that if one of us dies suddenly, the others MUST come in and delete the search history.
Writers have to research some weird stuff.
If AI refuses to generate certain perspectives, then it is very limited in what it can generate.
On the other hand, what if it did produce insults?
They might be too outrageous or offensive for me to use.
I would have to be so specific in my request to find just the right tone that I might as well write the insult myself.
I think AI is an amazing tool.
But it has its limits.
We still need writers.
Everyone has a story to tell.
