Many writers have written stories about computers that went wrong.
“Westworld” Where a robot cowboy kills people.
“Terminator” A mechanical killer.
“Robocop” A half human device with some human flaws.
Write a story on a similar theme where a robot or simple device starts
to go wrong. It may be as complex as a free-standing robot that is employed
as a servant. Or as simple as a washing machine that starts to go wrong.
You may illustrate it if you wish.
