So I’m standing in front of the mirror, scratching my cat behind the ears. “Hey cat,” I hear you say. So what? Is your pet really a little bit feisty?

I used to write articles daily, but lately I’ve been finding myself spending a lot of time on writing routines like this so that when I find myself frustrated with not having an original thought on something, then i can quickly pull up an article from scratch and just write from there – saving me lots of time in the process

My cat doesn’t LIKE the mirror – this I knew, but I guess I’d forgotten. When he’s been sitting in front of the mirror, he curls up and hides his face (the cat’s not a bad ‘actor’, he knows what to do when an audience is watching). So I was surprised when I heard him meowing at the mirror. What had he seen in that reflection? Just another cat. Nothing unusual, except that this cat in the mirror has a different color, and his fur curls up behind his ears. He is also a very ‘attractive’ cat, with the grace and good looks of a Persian Cat (and my own cat is not).

I was trying to improve my writing skills and came across this article that showed me how much of a difference it made using an automation tool like Quicksilver

It’s not a difficult process, I just record myself reading the article and put it into this tool. All I have to do is click a button and it’s like the voice of God telling me what to write. It’s like a machine bred with a writer, the perfect offspring.
I just had to google that last phrase and it said “machine-like parthenogenesis”. Thanks Quicksilver!
A quick google search tells me this is when an animal reproduces by itself – making a machine with our own skills sound even more impressive! In other words, Quicksilver is the love child of a computer and my writing skills. Let’s see what happens when I put it through its paces…
