The bad fan fiction doesn’t seem like a big problem, but give that ten-year-old time to grow up and the fear of many writers–that their beautiful stories will be replaced with soulless AI-generated tales–becomes a lot more plausible.
However, some aspects of human writing may never be replicable by AI. Each person brings their unique soul and experiences to their writing in a way AI can’t (we hope).
If you want to distinguish your writing from AI-generated writing, play up your humanity.
I interviewed Dewi Hargreaves about his freelance work making maps for fantasy books, working at an independent press, and much more.
I’m here today with Dewi Hargreaves–writer, artist, editor, and all-around fantastic human being.
Picture us sitting in front of a crackling log fire, in a room with dark wood panelling and a wall covered in bookshelves. On the rug before the fire sleeps a unicorn.
We’re actually doing this by email, but I think it’s more fun if you picture the room with the unicorn.
I asked Dewi to keep his responses PG rated, and he almost entirely succeeded. I only had to bleep out one word. Otherwise Dewi’s responses are entirely his own, except for a few additional paragraph breaks.
