Writing Prompt Friday, Science Fiction Edition, and Hands On Festival Deadlines!

Hello all!  First, today is the last day to book your discounted hotel rate at the Maison St Charles (just give them festival code: Hands On Festival), and tomorrow is the last day to preregister for The Hands On Literary Festival & Masquerade Ball, with keynote speakers Joy Castro and Lee Gutkind, and secure your spot in master classes.  Visit our registration page to book your literary New Year’s Eve in New Orleans now!


Second: It’s Writing Prompt Friday!  Today’s writing prompt is all about artificial intelligence.  Imagine you, or a character you create, are having a conversation with an artificial intelligence.  What does the being look like? Who created it?  What does the AI want?  What does the AI need?   Do you or your character want something from the artificial intelligence?  Does it want something from you?  Why are you there?  Try for at least 1000 words, and, as always, if you like what you write, send it to us!

Happy weekend writing!  And we hope to see some of you in New Orleans for this year’s festival!
