โ€œIโ€™ve seen things you people wouldnโ€™t believe . . . Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion . . . I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhรคuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain . . . Time to die.โ€ โ€“ Blade Runner (1982)

Welcome to Write Club! Each month, I will be hosting an Unofficial Challenge (Prompt). If you have not read the Entries for the โ€œMarch Madnessโ€ Challenge, you are missing out, my friend. They are truly and MADLY great!

This month, we are exploring the mystery, intrigue, and/or horrors of Artificial Intelligence (AI).

โ’ถฯษพโ’พส… Sิ‹ฯƒษฏาฝษพส‚ แ‚ฆษพฮนษณษ  Mฮฑแƒง ฯส…ฯƒษฏาฝษพส‚ . . . ฮฑษณิƒ โ€œTิ‹าฝ โ’ถโ’พ Dฯƒษฑฮฑฮนษณ แ‚ฆษพฮนษณษ ส‚ Tาฝฮฑษพส‚ ฮนษณ Rฮฑฮนษณ!โ€

Write about some aspect of โ€œAIโ€. Explore the boundless opportunities of AI, or the mystery, intrigue, or even horrors of AI. Give us an apocalyptic warning, a sci-fi thriller, or explore how AI might be used for the benefit of mankind.

No ideas coming to mind? How about a review of your favorite song, book, short story, or movie dealing with AI.

Have fun with this! As with prior Prompts, you may creatively explore the topic in any genre and format. Donโ€™t be afraid to think outside of the box. (But do not allow AI to write your story!)

As always, I have provided some AI-generated images at the end of this Prompt. Feel free to use any of these as inspiration or for your storyโ€™s cover photo.

โ’ถ๐ฉ๐ซโ’พ๐ฅ ๐€๐ˆ ๐๐ซ๐จ๐ฆ๐ฉ๐ญ:

  1. Write about some aspect of โ€œAIโ€. Explore the boundless opportunities of AI, or the mystery, intrigue, or even horrors of AI.
  2. You choose the format and style (make it in the style of a short story, an apocalyptic letter, a sci-fi thriller, a (doomsday) diary entry, a poem, or write an article about some aspect of AI) โ€” you decide the format. (No ideas coming to mind? How about a song or book review?). I wanna see us push the outer limits of our creative abilities.
  3. The word limit for this Prompt is 3,500 words.
  4. It makes no difference what Community your entry is submitted to.
  5. Post a link to your entry in the comments below by Thursday, April 25, 2024, and I will append it to this story. (If your Entry gets stuck in review, drop a comment below to let me know.)
  6. The top 5-10 entries will be selected, and I will award each of those Authors a $5 tip.

Have fun, and Welcome to Write Club! ๐Ÿ‘Š

And donโ€™t forget: If this is your first time at Write Club . . . YOU HAVE TO WRITE!

    I know it's too late, but I'll just leave this story here in case you'd be interested: https://vocal.media/fiction/nemesis-986m0uef

  • Hannah Moore2 months ago

    Ah, I'm sorry I missed another one! Been a patchy period for vocal engagement for me.

  • Catsidhe2 months ago

    Thought this was going to be a microfiction, then it turned into a poem, lol. Thanks for another interesting prompt! https://vocal.media/poets/i-only-want-what-s-best-for-you

  • Anna 2 months ago

    Here's another one, I wrote this in a hurry... https://vocal.media/poets/nemesis-k3c10a37

  • Anna 2 months ago

    Hey! Almost forgot about this, I hope it isn't over yet! Here's my short haiku or senryu about robots: https://vocal.media/poets/taking-over-367a0pkb

    Dharsheerha suggested I enter this so I'll give it a try. Hopefully, you'll like it. https://vocal.media/futurism/dangerous-mind

  • Rebekah Conard2 months ago

    This is a good opportunity to vent about a job loss... https://vocal.media/journal/when-the-robots-took-my-job

    Oh yes. Another AI faux pas to register. https://vocal.media/futurism/the-singularity-x5o03rl

  • Novel Allen2 months ago

    Never heard of the Flock of seagulls. I just started an AI story that will fit in so well were, like 20 minutes ago. So uncanny, my reading this now. My spirit is revived. Keep being "Awesome Stockton".

  • Cathy holmes3 months ago

    Hmmm. Let me see what I can do. ๐Ÿ˜

  • Paul Stewart3 months ago

    Oh, this is interesting. I love the prompt and shall see what I shall see what shall see what (smacks my computer brain, lol joke) come up with!

  • Mack D. Ames3 months ago

    An odd contribution to AI attempts: https://vocal.media/fiction/art-i-ficial

  • C. Rommial Butler3 months ago

    I contribute this at Dharsheena's behest, as I seem to have synchronistically written it without foreknowledge of the challenge, but ask that it remain an unofficial entry. All prizes go to others! Please! https://vocal.media/futurism/open-letter-to-the-algorithm

    Hi Rob - As an old fasion storyteller..not a big fan of Ai. As with my Profession. Ai will be an intrical part of other j.o.b.'s such as: Doctor 'Scripts/Exams'/Pharacists/Engineers...and you get the picture...from my Gen to yours, progress. Your work is very appreciated by me and the VocalVillage. 'j'.in.l.a.
