Chat GPT

Now, let’s talk about ChatGPT, your personal writing assistant powered by AI. I wouldn’t suggest ChatGPT for the writing of your book but it can be helpful when it comes to generating ideas, improving your writing style, or creating social media content. Honestly, the uses are endless.

With this tool, make sure that you are very specific when you tell Chat GPT what you need help with. Once you come up with a prompt that yields the results that you want, save it, and use it again in the future.
