AI and AI Writing


The emergence of artificial intelligence (AI) has brought about a significant transformation in various industries, including writing. Thanks to AI-powered writing tools, writers can now generate content with greater speed and efficiency. This article delves into the impact of AI on writing and how it is reshaping the writing landscape.

Powered Writing

AI-powered writing tools like ChatGPT, Jasper and Sudowrite use natural language processing to help writers enhance their skills. They provide suggestions for concise wording, spotting repeated phrases, and correcting grammar and spelling for polished content. And as we are learning, much more.

I use Sudowrite for writing help, or even programs like Frase. The AI Research feature helps me find trustworthy sources, and their SEO tools aid my marketing strategy. The Grammarly AI editor in WordPress is also helpful for a consistent tone.

Automated Content Creation

AI-powered content creation tools are revolutionizing the writing industry. They can analyze large amounts of data to produce articles, reports, and books. Although not as good as human writing yet, they are improving quickly. In the future, even more, advanced tools will make it easier to produce high-quality content at scale.

Content Optimization

AI technology can help writers improve their content for search engines by analyzing search data and recognizing popular keywords and topics among users. Writers can then create content that has a higher chance of ranking well in search engine result pages (SERPs), leading to greater traffic and exposure for both the writers and their content.

From my personal experience, utilizing AI has significantly aided in saving time during research. The AI recommends distinct keywords to enhance the visibility of my content, which is an added benefit to the SEO plugins like YOAST offered by WordPress. To be honest, I wish I had access to AI-powered research tools when I was completing my undergraduate degree. JSTOR doesn’t even come close!

AI and Personalization

AI is revolutionizing content creation by analyzing our interests and tailoring content to fit them. It’s like having a personal content genie at our fingertips! Writers can cultivate a devoted audience without bribes. Cheers to AI-powered content creation!

Concerns in the Writing Industry

One of the biggest concerns of AI technology in the writing industry is its lack of human touch. Sure, the articles that are produced look nice and clean – but where’s the writer’s voice? The subtle notes of sarcasm or puny jokes. The personal flare that writers give their work. While AI can analyze data and provide insights, it cannot replicate the human experience and emotions that are often present in writing. So would one consider this to be lazy writing?

When experimenting with ChatGPT I felt that the language was rather basic and did not contain the flare that I look for when reading. It was not enticing and I found what I wrote on paper much better than what the program had generated. I didn’t feel like my voice was reflected in the writing it produced. However, my writing style closely resembles my speaking style. Sometimes. Other days I lose my complete grasp on the language.

Many in the writing industry are concerned about relying on AI technology. The potential for glitches and errors in AI technology can lead to delays and inaccuracies. Therefore, it is not advisable to solely depend on AI for writing tasks. However, AI can serve as a useful tool for gaining inspiration during writer’s block. But do not rely on it to be grammatically correct, there is editing to be done. Sometimes the auto-writer programs will leave off in the middle of a sentence.

There are also ethical concerns surrounding the use of AI technology in the writing industry. For example, if AI is used to write articles or other content, it may not be clear who the actual author is, which can lead to issues with plagiarism and copyright infringement. I am concerned about using features that generate entire books or articles. How can I be sure that the content is not simply copied from another analyzed source?

“AI writing tools don’t actually understand the text they generate, as they basically collect information from the internet and reword it. This could result in content that has issues like misplaced statistics and sentences without flow and coherence”.

Although I hold some reservations about the capabilities of AI for writers and creators, I recognize its potential in the field of writing. It has made certain aspects of writing easier and I have always maintained the motto of ‘work smarter, not harder.’ Ai has its place in the writing industry.


AI is changing the writing industry with tools that help create quality content faster. However, we need to consider the downsides, such as losing the human touch and ethical issues. We should weigh the pros and cons before fully embracing AI in writing.
