After the last post, I had a thought. ChatGPT isn’t that great at coming up with a story, but what if you gave it an outline?
I wanted a story that had an open ending. Mostly I decided that anything I use AI for I’ll put it up for free (details, including link below).
So I used my CLOSAT game to come up with a writing prompt. Then I used ChatGPT to come up with two characters: The Main Character and a secondary one. As in the image above, it was Jaxon and his sister, Scarlett.
After I used a short story outline for a basic plot. It’s one of many plot outlines and this one is great for open-ended short stories.
Then I had some trouble with ChatGPT. As you can see, my saved chat history is missing. As (almost) predicted, the page crashed, and I wasn’t able to access this conversation. After a couple of days, I could finally access the history and continued the project.
It’s interesting to note, ChatGPT wrote exactly 1500 characters, cutting it off mid-sentence.
I put it in the Google doc anyway, for context.
There’s no dialogue, and it’s certainly better than the last one, but again, it seems so generic. I prefer dialogue, even if there’s a little, because it humanizes the characters. This looks more like an expanded plot. Something some writer or movie maker can expand into a book. Since I used OpenAI’s ChatGPT to make the story, I’m giving it away for free. You don’t even have to give me credit, although I wouldn’t mind a review for Elizabeth: Heritage Journey.
