I do not use generative artificial intelligence (AI). Like most writers, I often rely on AI-assistive tools in software programs for spelling, grammar, and clarity in my writing, as well as assisting with research and expediting workflows. All finished writings, though, are products of my own thoughtful, creative, and experienced efforts in composing and editing the written word. Similarly for my original images, they may have minimal adjustments and cropping, but they are never altered in any way with AI. I’m not always certain, though, about other people’s images I borrow from elsewhere.
