Throw it a prompt, get a result, and tweak it. Edit it. Ask it to reword a sentence, or a concept. Have it summarize the last two lines, reword the intro.
Since you’re leading the writer room, you now hack it together with tape and glue.
You’re not just copy and pasting the results into an email to your client, or a pitch to your boss – you’re using your years of experience and wisdom to pull out the best parts, get your mind moving, and hopefully get to a few “light bulb” moments during the whole process.
I’ve been writing online since 2001, and chatGPT is a great automated computerized writing partner, and I’ve used it for my newsletters, small bits of client work, and some emails here and there.
For me, my biggest obstacle in starting any written project is the EMPTY PAGE.
So even if you just use chatGPT to start a written project, it can be huge.
– Write five social media captions about my new music video
– Write how this new video “hit me in the face like a ton of bricks”
– List some keywords I can use on YouTube for my project
– What big technology thing happened in 2007 (see attached image)?
Now, for anything factual (like big technological things in 2007), make sure you fact check! It’s not perfect, BUT, it’s a starting point.
Just like when things get thrown out in a writer room, you’re not going to put everything on paper and publish it the next day.
So yeah… try it out, at least to just get past the “staring at a blank page” problem. Edit. Rework things. Have fun!
