“There. All done. You see, you’re a writer.”

“No, I’m not a writer. I didn’t write that; the computer did.”

“Whatever. Those are your words. Now they’re recorded. Poof; done.”

“That’s not writing, it’s just a conversation, and half of those words are yours.”

“Okay, wiseass. Here-“

He reaches out and slides the laptop over to in front of him, types in a short description and then-

“See? Just throw some of that in there and whah-la.”

“Oh great, like filler in with your meatloaf. Real fancy.”

“That’s called a simile-“

“I call it crap. It’s crap. You can’t just copy a conversation. What about facial expression, voice tone, sound effects? I can’t even make a decent fart noise or copy that stupid expression on your face.”

“That’s all part of it. Figure it out or write around that stuff.”

“Still sounds like crap to me. If it’s so easy then-“

“’-why isn’t everyone doing it?’ A lot of people are. I didn’t tell you, you could be Hemmingway. I just said you could write. Besides, I’m you and you’re me, and we all just like to tell stories.”

Oh, nothing serious. Just playing around a bit. You know, like 'the writing process' or something...It's how I come up with stuff, at least one way. The last part is just possibilities.

Kevin your frenzied voice comes across in everything you write. I love it.

Its fiction for writers, I liked it somewhat.
I'd rather there be something in mind reguarding the main character's persona (explicit / I prefer the theme/tone/structure to convey though).
I'd like there to be something uknown to expect: either a puzzle or the general goal of the main.
