Today I drove to the RiverRock near the airport for the One Dance Competition. Jessica had students competing. It reminded me that we are all competing for attention as writers and artists. Our work needs to gain attention and hold it – this is the trick that’s the hardest to accomplish. It’s also why, so far, AI creative writing is so bad, it relies on trophes and old pieces of writing, when in reality, we’re attempting to create something new.
