I’m playing with a fun new AI tool called “human generator” – it lets you get really detailed in your options, and it feels like creating a character profile in a video game. I was impressed by the realistic quality of the clothing… usually people use Daz3D to make fantasy or scifi characters because there
In today’s digital era, the proliferation of artificial intelligence in various sectors, including content generation, has prompted a pressing question: How can we differentiate between human-generated content and AI-generated content? This is especially challenging with state-of-the-art models like GPT-4. In this article, we will delve...
This morning when I woke up, Reddit was abuzz about a hearing in the Mexican congress showing alien cadavers. I’m not a true believer, or even an X-files fan, but I’m proud of my imagination and entertaining new possibilities is something I enjoy. If my philosophy degree taught me anything, it was to never assume
In 1637, Descartes argued that machines will never replace humans, because he couldn’t conceive of a machine with levers and buttons for every word and the ability to also put them all into a meaningful order on purpose.* And there are still many – maybe if a majority – of people confidently denying that AI
So, I’ve spent the last few years bouncing around from cafés in Bali to beach huts in Thailand, all while juggling deadlines. Crazy, right? If someone had told me a few years ago I’d trade my office cubicle for a hammock and my coffee breaks for sunset views, I would’ve laughed. But here I am,
Today I decided I want to be traditionally published. Even though I like having the control of self-publishing. Even though I know I can earn more self-publishing. Even though my books routinely outrank and outsell traditionally published books. Even though I don’t need any help with editing, book design or book marketing. I want to be...
I love watching movies about writers and writing, so I binged The Lesson movie one lazy afternoon. It starts with some great quotes on writing and literature. Here’s the setup: a famous writer hires a tutor for his son. So this wannabe writer (with a photographic memory) comes to live with his wife and kid.
I’m writing this as a plan for me to follow as I’ve decided on a slightly reckless “business” idea and wanted to share it with you. Case studies are always useful, and I know a lot of would-be bloggers or even business websites are thinking “should I use AI to write articles for me?” How
I taught English for a few years before getting my PhD in Literature. I was pretty awful with younger kids (one 3 year old punched me), but once they got pretty fluent, we could move on to the funner, but weird English stuff. Like all writers, I love a creative metaphor or analogy, but sometimes
Getting more book reviews is a crucial step in the book marketing process for self-published authors. Not only do reviews provide social proof that your book is worth reading, but they can also help improve your book’s visibility on platforms like Amazon and Goodreads. Here are the steps and resources to help you get more
This may seem like a weird post, for a personal blog about creativity, but it’s kind of important. Writers or authors who want to build an audience and sell their work probably want to get traffic. Getting online traffic lets you write from home and be a slob instead of standing in a public market
Fictional characters — the lifeblood of any narrative. They are the entities that give flesh and bone to the abstract ideas of a plot. For writers, they are the medium through which they connect with the readers, invoke emotions and drive the storyline. Let’s delve into the fascinating process of creating and understanding these figments...
