ChatGPT and the death of writing?

ChatGPT has taken the world by storm. People are using it to find information, to write long corporate documents, to mimic long-dead authors, to populate their own websites, and much more. I’ve used it, and it’s an extremely impressive service, and what’s more, it’s free.


Some in the writing world are railing against AI. This is for a variety of reasons, and I suspect not all are entirely selfless. Put simply, Ai threatens people’s jobs. But AI exists; there’s really no point being a modern-day Ned Ludd and fighting against it. From a proofrerader’s point of view, AI offers new opportunities. It makes sense for businesses and individuals to use AI. It can save scores or even hundreds of hours in writing time and costs.


What you get back is good, but it’s not always quite right, in tone, style or language. This is where a proofreader or editor can come in. I can take your AI-generated text, and make sure it looks authentic. I can pick up clumsy phrasing, American spelling, ambiguous grammar, and even contentious or potentially offensive words and phrases. In short, I can make your writing human.


Perhaps one day, AI will offer all that a human does, only faster and cheaper. But until that day, why not consider using a proofreader or editor? Contact me today see what I can offer – I look forward to working with you!

Proofreaders: they work for book publishers, read books and check them for errors, right? Well, yes and no. No-one wants to read a novel only to be distracted by scores of errors every chapter. It put
