Sci-fi author says he wrote 97 books in 9 months using AI tools, including ChatGPT and Midjourney

The article discusses the impact of ChatGPT, an AI language model, on the world of novel writing and its potential to revolutionize the creative process by assisting authors in generating ideas, characters, and even entire books.

Key Points:

  • The model provides real-time assistance to writers by suggesting names for characters, generating dialogue, and offering plot ideas, helping authors overcome writer’s block and enhance their storytelling abilities.
  • In a survey conducted by OpenAI, 80% of the participating authors reported that ChatGPT was beneficial in the novel writing process, allowing them to write more efficiently and produce higher-quality work.

Personal Insights:

  • I have like 5-10 books I want to write… perhaps this can be helpful with some of the overall outlines and structure.  Still think it should be my voice though in the writing…

Article Highlights:

  • In an article for Newsweek, Tim Boucher said he used Midjourney, ChatGPT, and Anthropic’s Claude to create the books.
  • He wrote in Newsweek: “AI has proven to be a remarkable catalyst for my creative work. It has enabled me to increase my output while maintaining consistent quality, and has allowed me to delve into intricate world-building with an efficiency I could never have achieved otherwise.”
  • In February, ChatGPT was credited as the author or coauthor on more than 200 titles in Amazon’s bookstore. Some of the most popular genres were AI guides and children’s books.
  • Ammaar Reshi, a product-design manager at a financial-tech company based in San Francisco, previously told Insider he wrote and illustrated a children’s book in 72 hours using ChatGPT and Midjourney.
