The Writing stack is about how to write, not about how to "drive" a program to do the writing for you.
If you dislike writing so much that you want a machine to do it for you, why are you bothering?
The point of writing is to express your ideas in such a way that others can experience them as well. ChatGPT can't express your ideas for you because it doesn't understand them (or anything else.) It cannot express its own ideas because it has none.
"Writing" with ChatGPT is pointless.
Close such questions and be done with them.
ChatGPT spews gibberish in (almost) decently formed sentences. It does not understand what a story is or what a plot is, let alone the less tangible things that give a story meaning and impact.
Writing and storytelling communicate things beyond just events and descriptions of places. They convey feeling and meaning - and ChatGPT has none of either of those things.
Above and beyond that, it does a poor job. The things it kicks out stick together for maybe a few paragraphs, then it falls apart. There is no long-term plot but merely related elements chained together at random. It can't maintain a coherent concept of characters because they are merely words strung together.
Actually making a complete story out of the random bits and pieces it pukes out would be more work than actually writing the story yourself. Tools should make your work easier, not more difficult. ChatGPT just gives you more to do.
All the buzz about ChatGPT reminds me of Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels, in particular the visit to the grand academy of Lagado. Gulliver encounters a professor who has invented a device to create all possible written works.
He assured me “that this invention had employed all his thoughts from his youth; that he had emptied the whole vocabulary into his frame, and made the strictest computation of the general proportion there is in books between the numbers of particles, nouns, and verbs, and other parts of speech.”
Sounds rather like ChatGPT, analyzing the internet to develop rules for stringing words together.
The professor then desired me “to observe; for he was going to set his engine at work.” The pupils, at his command, took each of them hold of an iron handle, whereof there were forty fixed round the edges of the frame; and giving them a sudden turn, the whole disposition of the words was entirely changed. He then commanded six-and-thirty of the lads, to read the several lines softly, as they appeared upon the frame; and where they found three or four words together that might make part of a sentence, they dictated to the four remaining boys, who were scribes. This work was repeated three or four times, and at every turn, the engine was so contrived, that the words shifted into new places, as the square bits of wood moved upside down.
Sounds rather like all those currently scrambling to make use of the bits and bobs tossed out by ChatGPT because they are too lazy or unknowledgeable or unimaginative to write for themselves. Much work for poor quality returns, where far less (but real) work would give better results.
ChatGPT is the professor's frame of letters. Would you like to be one of the professor's students scribbling down its random output, or would you rather create for yourself for real?
I know where I stand.
Write it yourself, or don't bother.
