AI writing tools

I’ve recently been writing an RFP, and in the middle of writing it I stopped to think about all the tools I was using.

  1. Spell check, obvi
  2. Grammarly
  3. smmry.com
  4. A whole bunch of google and duckduckgo

It has gotten to the point now where I push things to smmry.com to see if it’s worth my time to read, and ONLY if I see something that resonates with me, will I go an find the passage and figure out if I want to read whatever my search tools have presented to me. At this point, I’m using AI to search for relevant topics, AI to correct my poor spelling, grammar, and presentation. I think the only thing I’m going to need next is an AI microtargeting tool to assist in writing to specific audiences. That would be cool. “Oh, I’m writing to a research crowd, better not use the word “utilize” in place of “use.” I think something like that would be a crown jewel in a writer’s AI toolkit. It feels like cheating, but honestly, I suck at writing and using all of these tools help out quite a bit. Grammarly is worth the $140 or so a year, and smmry.com comes out with some real gems. Check out what it’s picked out for this write-up: The heat map that smmry.com provides indications as to what it believes the writing is all about.

And you know what? I think this post COULD be summed up in two sentences. I’m using a lot of AI when I write. A microtargeting AI for writers would be excellent.
