Today is Sunday, so it’s a good time to reflect on and write about the week you just had. Write a piece of fiction about it if you’re in a creative mood. Or use today’s writing prompt to pause and reflect on your own writing process, and what writing means to you.
Keep reading to see today’s full reflective writing prompt about A.I. and writing, as well as weekly updates on what I’ve been writing and reading, and more.
This Week’s Sunday Summary Writing Prompt: What are your thoughts on A.I. and Writing?
As writers, it’s tempting to bury our heads in the sand (or clouds) and ignore the fact that A.I. (artificial intelligence) is taking the world by storm. And that it’s already affecting our lives in one way or another already whether we like it or not, as well as our livelihoods as writers. We must take a moment to reflect on the impact A.I. is already having on us and our writing. So, today, write a journal entry or a piece of short fiction answering the question: What are your thoughts on A.I. and Writing?
Or write a journal entry or reflective post summarizing the previous week you had and notable things you wrote, read, learned, etc., as well as what you want to write, read, and do in the week ahead.
See my thoughts on A.I. and writing in the Medium article I published earlier this week. Keep scrolling and you’ll find the link to the article in the post below.

Updates On My Current W.I.P.
I’m still editing and reviewing the first part of three in the current novel I’m working on, and I think I’m getting pretty close to nailing down a title. I hope to share new excerpts from the novel in the next week or so. Stay tuned.
Current Reads And Book Reviews
I’m currently reading This is How They Tell Me the World Ends: The Cyberweapons Arms Race by Nicole Perlroth (which is phenomenal so far) and Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel.

Liar, Dreamer, Thief by Maria Dong
This book is unique and genre-bending and many readers will enjoy it. I really enjoyed following the mystery Katrina (the main character) follows in the novel and had to keep reading to find out what was going to happen. However, I wish there would have been equal parts mystery and thriller and Katrina’s kitchen-door world throughout the novel, consistently. At points, it was all about her hallucinations and depression, but there was no mystery or thrill. Then at others, it was as if she did a 180 and was completely lucid and a completely different person, to the point that I thought I was following an entirely different character. It did seem almost insensitive to those with such an extreme version of a mental illness, like the one that Katrina is depicted as having in the first part of the book. One doesn’t just quickly pull through such intense episodes of mental illness like that, after seeing death and being threatened and abandoned and scared, without medication or help from a loved one or a professional. So, Katrina’s journey became more of a farce for me to follow and empathize with in the last third of the book, I am sad to say. But the mystery does stay alive throughout the book and you will keep guessing until you reach the end.
