OK – here’s my next assignment. We’re going to start small, with children’s stories. I think I have a good handle on how to write a decent children’s story myself.
We’ll start the attack like this:
- Gather a list of common animals. (Done)
- Come up with a way to generate cute prefixes for the names of these animals in English (Janga Jackal, Kiminy Kangaroo, or something like that – no idea how I’m going to do this).
- Handcode some basic knowledge about each of the animals in this list that will give rise to goals that a given animal would want to accomplish within a story (a mole wants dark and to burrow, a cat wants to chase things).
After the above, I’ll figure out what to do next.
