There’s a push to produce words in the shortest possible time. Use AI to write.
You can finish fast while using AI to write, but what about plagiarism and copyright issues? Where’s the humanity in much of this “machine generated” work?
Many writers are shocked by the new release of AI to write content but it’s up to authors to produce higher quality work, with a deeper and more personal connection, delivering meaningful content not pages of degraded quality.
Now more than ever, we need to create something that matters, that’s relevant and will make readers think or swim.
Listening to Joanna Penn recently, a highly successful author and podcaster, who explained as authors, we have a responsibility to our readers. “Put more of yourself into your work. It’s hard, fightening, delving into the dark side. What matters in the new world of Artificial Intelligence, is your creative ideas, thoughts and beautiful creative production like the hard back books being printed in recent years, embossed, colourful and magnificently designed.
Like me, Joanna Penn doesn’t believe AI will replace creative writers, but it will be a sophihsticated tool to enhance and develop your skills and imagination as an author. Some call it a creative co-worker that can check your content, grammar, spelling and suggest other ideas to develop your story. It can’t actually write the book for you. I know disappointing after all the initial hype, but it can enhance the quality of your work. So why not use AI to write? Everyone wants to deliver the very best they can. Here’s a relevant quote that puts it in perspective.
“If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing or sing in writing, then don’t write because our culture has no use for it.”
Anaïs Nin French born 1903
AI won’t have the true heart-felt emotions a human author can deliver – no way. I’ve played around with it and can see its limitations but it’s a great tool to assist, rather like a co-writer, to bounce ideas around and agree on the best plot structure. Give it a go and let me know what you think?
