Meet Your New Co-Author, Generative AI ๐Ÿค–

Forget about havingย ChatGPTย and its friends, likeย Bard,ย Bing,ย LLaMA,ย Claude*, and others write your books for you. But these AI tools can still help you out in many amazing ways:

  • Brainstorming:ย Writerโ€™s block? Give the AI a few keywords or phrases to generate a list of potential ideas. Even if theyโ€™re not perfect, theyโ€™ll help spark your imagination and maybe send you in a fun new direction.
  • Character creation:ย Need a minor character? Ask an AI. It can suggest character traits, backgrounds, and even names, so you can focus on getting back to writing.
  • Feedback:ย Where else can you get instant feedback on writing style and grammar so you know what needs fixing most? Not as good as a human critique partner, but way faster. :)

These tools are all still under development, and itโ€™s not always easy to get great results. But weโ€™re kidlit writersโ€”weโ€™re nothing if not persistent! So keep trying, remember what works, and someday soon youโ€™ll wonder how you ever got along without your friendly AI co-author.

* Note that not all AIs work in all regions.
