Writing and Artificial Intelligence (AI)

When most people think about using artificial intelligence to write, their mind goes to people who may abuse the technology. Yes, some people will use AI to churn out sub-par books. But don’t worry about them.

Instead, look to how you use AI. View AI as a tool to help you write better, just like word processing software or spell and grammar checkers.

Your goal as a writer should be to produce the best possible book you can to delight your readers, be it to entertain or educate. Use AI tools to help achieve this goal, and don’t worry about others who may misuse it.

If you tap AI as a writing tool to enhance your work, you can be satisfied that you’re properly using it and not abusing it. Then, with a clear conscience, you can move forward to produce excellent work, which should be the goal of every writer.

Takeaway: Embrace AI as a tool to help you write better, and don’t worry about how others may use—or abuse—it.
