There is a specter haunting the world of writers - the specter of automatic writing. That's right, an article or report generated by a computer algorithm without human input. An algorithm is a "step-by-step procedure for solving a problem or accomplishing some end especially by a computer." This is a natural outgrowth of the science of Artificial Intelligence. So new is this topic of automatic writing that there are very few Google or Bing searches on the subject. People are only gradually becoming aware of it. This will change soon, because automatic writing will revolutionize journalism, not to mention freelance writing. And it will happen quickly.
