You can engage in a back-and-forth with Copilot, asking for more details, resources, links, etc. on any topic you can imagine. 

Copilot can save you time, reduce effort, and even improve the quality of your writing. 

However, don't rely too heavily on Copilot as it may limit your own writing development.

And never, ever, share personal or company private information in Copilot or any other AI.
