New Temp Service For Writers

I’d like to propose a new kind of temp service for spoiled, lazy writers like myself. The way it would work is that, once the fun part of the creative process was over – the part where you get to feel the thrill of filling a blank page, say, or the joy of writing the last word of a first draft – you’d have this temp service that would finish the job for you. So you’d give the temp service whatever you’d done, and then some notes like, “need character development for Tom in act 1, please fix,” or “not enough dramatic tension in second half,” or, “need more jokes that are funny.” And the temp service would come back to you in a few days with what you meant to write the first time.
