Pen to Pixel: Writing a Novel with Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Ladies and Gentlemen, gather ’round and prepare to have your minds blown. I am on a mission to write the next great American novel, but with a twist – I’m going to do it with the help of AI technology!

Now, I know what you’re thinking. “But, isn’t that cheating?” And to that, I say, “Pish posh!” This is the 21st century, folks. We’ve got robots doing our vacuuming, self-driving cars, and even toilets that automatically raise the seat for you. It’s about time we harnessed the power of technology to write the next great literary masterpiece.

I mean, think about it. No more writer’s block. No more staring at a blank page for hours on end, trying to come up with the perfect opening sentence. The AI will do all the heavy lifting for me. All I have to do is sit back, relax, and occasionally hit the “generate” button. It’s like having a personal writing assistant who never complains about working overtime or wanting a raise.

And the best part? The AI won’t judge me for my plot twists or subpar character development. It won’t tell me that my protagonist is too cliché or that my dialogue is wooden. It will simply churn out page after page of pure, unadulterated genius.

So, what kind of novel am I going to write, you ask? Well, let’s just say that it’s going to be a futuristic, sci-fi, romance epic that will leave you on the edge of your seat. Or, you know, it might be a murder mystery set in a small town where the sheriff is also the killer. Either way, it’s going to be a wild ride!

So, my friends, join me on this journey to see what kind of literary gold can be struck with the help of AI technology. Who knows, maybe one day our children will be reading our AI-written novel in their high school English classes. Stranger things have happened.

Until next time, keep dreaming and keep generating.

(And YES! I used AI to generate this introduction. Pish Posh? I mean, who says that, right?)

But an actual note from me.

Unless you live on a deserted island somewhere in the middle of the artic ocean, you’ve probably heard about all the new Artificial Intelligence (AI) Technology that is making people scared. I know, people get scared of the unknown. Will the writing programs eliminate the need for authors? Will the kids use it to write reports and never learn anything in school? Will the AI art eliminate the need for graphic designers? And what about AI voices, reading to you, eliminating the need for audio narrators?

Well, I’m not here to debate that. Instead, I’m here to see what it can do. I’ve challenged myself to write a book, completely using AI, and post the progress and results on this blog.

So… let’s get started.

I’m using ChatGPT by OpenAI because this is the product making the news. And the best part? Right now, it’s completely free. Link:

From what I understand, ChatGPT remembers the string of conversation, so I’m going to try to keep the novel all on one string to keep details consistent.

So…want to see what Chat GPT is capable of?

Then follow along. Scroll down and “subscribe” to the blog to receive updates delivered right to your inbox.

This is going to be fun!

(Or a disaster. The outcome is yet to be determined.)
