The Carrot Ranch March 7, 2022, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story about a robotic writer. Is it an analogy or a battery-operated i-writer? Is it possible? What will happen if robots write? Go where the prompt leads. Submit by March 12, 2022.
“Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to the pen of the future—the robotic writer.”
The man in the aisle at Costco now had my attention.
He held up a pink writing pen with a large barrel and two silver loops. The one-loop fit over my index finger, and the other over my thumb.
“Try it on. I know you want to.”
I slipped on the pen. It fit perfectly, and my hand moved in concert with my thoughts. I love this pen, but it costs too much, I wrote.
Wait… the pen can read my mind?
