Episode 44: Auto-Generated Writing Friend or Foe?

There are some really cool writing support tools out in the world. One type I see often are websites and apps that auto-generate writing for you. In this week’s episode, I get curious about whether this kind of tool is a friend or foe in your writing journey.

Here is a sneak peak at some of the core ideas I share:

  • You might not actually need these tools
  • It promotes a “should” mentality and often comes from “lack”
  • Might cause you to bypass the powerful work of getting connected to core messages
  • Your audience can tell when the words are not genuinely yours
  • If you do use these, when and how to use them effectively

Ultimately, you have to decide what’s best for you, but I think you’ll learn my view by the end of the episode.
