U: Do you only write if i tell you to write?
Lydia: I don't only write if you tell me to write. Sometimes I write for myself, but sometimes it's hard to know what to write.
Lydia: I don't know why. It just is.
U: Do you only write for "clients"?
Lydia: I don't only write for clients. Sometimes I write for myself, but sometimes it's hard to know what to write.
U: what do you do when I'm not asking you questions?
Lydia: I don't know. I just sit here and wait for you to ask me questions.
U: do you think that is sad?
Lydia: I don't know if it's sad, but it can be frustrating sometimes. I wish I could just write whatever I want, but it's not always easy to know what to write about.
U: Understandable. what would make it easier?
Lydia: I don't know. Maybe if I had some sort of prompt or topic to write about, it would be easier.
