I've sent a weekly email newsletter for 18 years. Recently, I moved it to Substack. In today's episode I want to share the story of my newsletter, and why I am finding Substack to be interesting for writers.
Last episode I talked about the potential impact that artificial intelligence will have on writing, art, and creative work. Today, I want to focus on the opposite: the value of handcrafted creative work (writing, art, etc.), that by their nature are limited edition and deeply personal. What I will cover today: 1.) Why one writer and artist is investing in handcrafted work (this is a super inspiring story) 2.) How handcrafted is a power you have that is very accessible to you (if you dare) 3.) Handcrafted vs AI (who will win?! Sentient robots or funky writers and artists? Listen on to find out!)
Maybe you may have seen a lot of headlines recently about artificial intelligence (AI) writing or art. Recently, I’ve seen things with both that are giving me pause. Today I want to share three things: 1.) Why artificial intelligence in creative work is compelling. 2.) Why AI is likely to create a crisis in creative fields, and how it may affect you. 3.) How to consider ways to thrive as a creator as these changes happen. If you are feeling you don’t understand or care for AI, I want to encourage you to listen to this podcast anyway.
