AI at the Writer’s Desk: What Works and What Doesn’t

Incorporating AI into the writing process can offer creative sparks and overcome blocks, but leaving it unchecked leads to unreliable accuracy.

We’ve all heard about AI taking our jobs and starting the robot uprising. In this instance, however, I purposefully let it do just that (well, at least the taking my blog-writing job part). Using AI to generate content still requires getting through a bit of a learning curve in getting your prompts written well so that the tool knows exactly what you want. That being said, however, the below post was written entirely by the free version of ChatGPT. The only editing I did to this was to clean up a bit of formatting! Ok, well, that and a couple of notes where it was less than accurate. 

I will follow up in a future blog post with exactly the method I used to generate this content. For now, however, enjoy!

Overall, letting any AI tool generate content without that supervision, curation, and editing is a dangerous practice. The technology has come a long, long way in a very short period of time, but it isn’t completely independent. The tools themselves will warn you, but the accuracy of information is not guaranteed for everything from basic facts to the dots that it connects. In fact, I had to try several times to get resources that actually existed and weren’t just made up by the bot. 

While learning how to write good prompts and churning out content en masse may make you a few bucks on Fiverr, it isn’t a way to produce quality content and in no way replaces the need for human writers and editors. My experience has been that it is more of a starting point or an ideation tool.

I use tools such as ChatGPT to give me ideas on other ways to word emails, suggest topics that I may not have thought of otherwise, or just get me past the initial writer’s block I often get when writing blog posts. The common wisdom around BizStream is that AI can get you about 60% there, but it is up to you to take that and turn it into something quality and usable.

Should you be using tools like ChatGPT, Bard, DALL-E, Midjourney, Jasper, etc, in your everyday workflow? Absolutely. You’d have to pry GitHub Copilot out of the cold dead hands of most of our developers here. They are just that, though, tools. Maybe in another 10-15 years, we will be able to farm out a lot more total content creation to AI, but for now, at least, keep doing what you do best and let AI make you even better!
