What do you do when the world embraces A.I.? Well, if you’re me, you buy a manual typewriter made in 1978 and take a huge leap back into the past. I don’t want A.I. to write stories for me or bring my visions to life. Creativity is about the individual creator’s unique perspective. Our ideas and stories are based on the emotional baggage we’ve acquired from living a life filled with happiness and chaos. Every story I’ve ever written has been influenced by something that happened to me at some point during my life. A.I. has no baggage. It’s never experienced setbacks or success. It doesn’t feel anything.
James, this is great. I also bought a typewriter for creative reasons (only I went way back to 1954!):
I've never used a typewriter. Perhaps the time is now!
Your new typewriter is a beauty! I’ve found that when I start a piece of writing on paper, the end result feels more “me.” And that’s what people are subscribing to.
Happy typing (or pecking)! 🐓😄
