How Generative AI Changed My Life

AI has changed the way we all look at creativity. It’s encouraged people to let go of the traditional approach and explore their inner thoughts to capture the subtleties that come with every story.

The First Afrocentric Time Travel Magazine: “Temporal Visions!”

Generative AI is quickly becoming the most advanced technology of our time, and I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the creative revolution it’s sparked. It’s opened up new avenues of exploration and opened my eyes to the creative possibilities available to writers and creators everywhere. I can’t wait to see where this technology takes us in the future.

I used Midjourney to help portray the characters I envisioned for my upcoming novel. I spent all of February 2023 creating the beginnings of yet another masterpiece. This time, it’s a magazine!

I could build out the characters and their stories in a much more efficient and creative way than I ever could have imagined and honed in on their finest details, creating a more in-depth look into each of their personalities. My cast of characters has faces, personalities, and life-like identities. Having these designs in print conveys the richness and depth of this project that I never dreamt possible.

Dedicated to lovers of speculative fiction, African literature, and time travel. Temporal Visions: Inspiration Gallery sets the tone for the forthcoming novel, “Time Traveler’s Digest: An Anthology,” — Book available in May 2023.

I was able to draw on every detail in the room, from the colors and textures of the furniture to the smells and sounds that filled the air. With generative AI, I could create a realistic setting for my characters to inhabit.

Of course, this technology does not replace my own creativity. In fact, AI has only made me a better writer and pushed the boundaries of my own creativity. I created something unique and original. It has empowered me to think outside the box and imagine new possibilities that I wouldn’t have considered before. Now, I can truly call myself a multidisciplinary creative artist.

It’s an exciting time for creativity and for those who dare to think in new and innovative ways. I can’t wait to see what this technology brings to us in the future.
