ChatGPT At Work

Asked ChatGPT to “write the first two paragraphs of “The Colour Of Magic” in the style of Franz Kafka”. And this is what it came up with:

As I awoke one morning from uneasy dreams, I found myself transformed into a tourist on the strange and fantastical world of Discworld. This world was a flat disc, supported on the backs of four elephants which, in turn, stood on the back of a giant turtle, Great A’Tuin, as it slowly swam through the cosmos. I found myself in the bustling city of Ankh-Morpork, a place of wonder and confusion. Everywhere I looked, there were sights and sounds that I had never before encountered: wizards casting spells, trolls wandering the streets, and colorful dragons flying overhead.

I was overcome with a sense of dread as I realized that I was entirely alone in this strange world, with no idea of how to return to my own. I searched frantically for someone, anyone, who could guide me and provide some semblance of order in this chaotic land. But as I roamed the streets, all I encountered were blank stares and shrugs from the bizarre inhabitants of Discworld, who seemed to take my presence in their world as nothing out of the ordinary. I was trapped in this world of absurdity and uncertainty, with no hope of escape.
