Artificial intelligence has emerged as a vital aid for writers who previously looked upon writing as a time-consuming, lonely craft. I for one now see it as a tool, a cocreator that enhances my productivity, creativity, and enjoyment of writing. Like a new toy, I am discovering different uses for it – especially when it comes to writing my workbook on AI as a complementary tool for writers.
If you use AI as a tool and avoid using it as a replacement for your own writing skills, it is an exceptional collaborator to help shape your story and enhance your writing experience. It offers more than just ideas and advice for content generation; it also helps with grammar and style, editing without overtaking your personal touch and creativity.
It’s inevitable. AI will continue to advance, and when used ethically, conscious writers will use it to their advantage without having it take over. I’ve found it invaluable for researching specific creative prompts for writing a poem in a birthday card for my sister, for marketing suggestions, tips on titles for magazine articles, to outlines for book writing. I used it a few weeks ago as a handout for students to explain the importance of structure and gave AI credit. It saves me time for more creative expression.
Yes, it does have dangerous aspects to it, but I decided not to “throw the baby out with the bath water.” We use a hammer to help us hang a picture on the wall, so why not use AI to help us write?
