As a writer, I spend a lot of time journaling and writing blog posts to express myself. However, I often struggle with making my musings understandable to readers. To address this issue, I have been exploring the use of AI to edit my writing prior to posting. While I wouldn't have AI write my blog post entirely, I have found that it can be incredibly helpful in editing my work, simplifying it and making it more accessible to readers.

In the past, I have found value in having editors review my work. However, outsourcing editing can be time-consuming and expensive. I mostly revert to leaving my writing as-is or editing many days later. That's why I have turned to AI as a solution. By using an AI editor, I can save time and streamline my editing process.

One concern that some writers have about using an AI editor is plagiarism. However, I believe that the editor is as much a contributor as the writer. The final product is still my own original writing, and the edits are derived from my thoughts. As a result, I don't have concerns about plagiarism. The edited version still has to have one last review and edit by me to ensure that my intended message remains the same.

Currently, I am using Mem AI as my editor. I chose this tool because I expect it to learn from my body of work and more closely resemble my writing style over time. Ultimately, I hope that using AI editing will speed up my editing process and improve the quality of my writing. This collaboration is a two-way street. The AI learns from me. I learn how to articulate better with the AI.
