After leaving The Feed, I’ve missed our weekly writers rooms. So, this morning, I turned to the GPT-3 Autoregressive language model to get my fix. I haven’t edited the questions or responses in any way, though I did cut out a boring part where we talked in circles about motive.
A private detective is hired by a client to investigate a crime. The detective looks for clues and interviews witnesses. The detective eventually solves the crime.
The clue that solves the case is a letter that the mistress wrote to the husband, confessing her love for him and her desire to kill his wife.

The detective does not believe her because he finds a letter that she wrote to the husband, confessing her love for him and her desire to kill his wife.
