All in a morning’s work

March 11, 2022

From Charli Mills at the Carrot Ranch is this week’s story challenge.
March 7, 2022, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story about a robotic writer.

All in a morning’s work

Artie sat in his chair and tugged his greasy ponytail tight. “Time to get working.”

He opened the What’sWrite? app and logged in. He decided that since today was Friday it was a good day for another Nash.

He chose Story\New\Murder.

He liked poison as the method and random as the motive.

Genre: Hardboiled. Level: Complex. Word count: 156,500.

He pressed the WRITENOW! button and watched as #31 in the “Nash Rambler: Private Eye” series auto-generated on the screen.

At 1,500 words per minute it’d finish writing in an hour. He should have it available on Amazon by lunch.

    Plenty of time to wash his hair.

    Hi Michael,
    This was great! It was as if you read my mind on this topic but wrote it better. Well except for the oily hair. I’d be happy just having hair again.
