Excerpt


EDITING


ChatGPT is a pro at brainstorming and assists with generating content, but it can also help correct your work. It can analyze your writing, offer tips, and identify and correct grammatical errors or typos. Additionally, AI can provide feedback on the overall structure of your work, offering hints to enhance its coherence and flow.


If you want to gauge the engagement level of your writing, ask ChatGPT for its opinion on how captivating or intriguing it is. It can provide insights and suggestions on how to make the text more compelling.


ChatGPT can also play various roles at your request. Ask it to pretend to be a parent or a literary agent, allowing you to receive feedback from various perspectives. By approaching your writing through assorted lenses, you can gain valuable insights to refine your work.


Even though AI can help with multiple tasks, it can also output misspelled words (most notably differences in British English vs. American English) and rambling, poorly written material. Always run a spelling and grammar checker before using any AI output. Also, use a plagiarism checker to confirm it hasn’t stolen any of its material. If the AI detection checker suggests it reads like AI-generated text, you’ll need to clean it up a little. And last, fact-check all information stated as facts.


Proofreading and grammar checking to edit a passage


When seeking help with proofreading or checking for grammar errors, ask in a prompt, and copy and paste the text after a semicolon following your request. You won’t be able to feed an entire book into a chat window. It will trigger an error message. Provide chunks of less than a few thousand words at a time.


Could you please check my text for any errors?: [insert text]


Help me proofread this piece of writing: [insert text]


Carefully review each suggestion and change your document. If you’re using a word processor or writing software, it will probably be easier and faster to use the built-in checkers.


ChatGPT can rewrite the passage and correct errors it detects. Ask for an explanation if any suggested edits are unclear, and the AI will gladly comply.


Take the time to read through the revised copy. Pay attention to the overall meaning and ensure everything aligns with your standards. If available, run the final copy through a spelling and grammar checker.
