3 AI Tools That Are Killing Your Creativity by the Second
The world is currently in the middle of a mediocrity storm (at least my world is), and the reason is AI…..
The other day, I was on Reddit and read a post — “I am quitting ChatGPT”.
The OP is a published author and is sharing his experience and reasons for abandoning the ‘god’ of AI. Since ChatGPT launched, he has struggled to even write an SMS without asking ChatGPT for assistance. :(
Seems impossible, right? But that’s not a single case.
Personally, I’ve been talking around, and everyone shares the same take — it’s now getting harder to start fresh. Most writers today head to ChatGPT (or some kind of AI writer) to start their first draft.
Years ago, I launched an online community — Unblocking the Writer’s Block. Our goal was to help fight our writer’s block so that we could write. Sadly, no one was committed to the goal and the initiative failed.
But when AI tools first came into the picture, it felt amazing — you won’t have to stare at a blank document for hours waiting for inspiration now. But of late, AI tools have become a calamity (shitstorm, you can say).
One that many don’t even see…
In one of my old articles about Mediocrity, I mentioned about the famous scene in The Incredibles where Mr. Incredible said, ‘Mediocrity is psychotic, and the world keeps creating new ways to Celebrate Mediocrity.’
Well, it seems ChatGPT (and all AI tools) is another way for all of us to celebrate mediocre thought and content. And in the process, it is crippling millions, snatching their ability to think creatively.
If you started the journey for the love of creativity & passion, beware of these AI tools.
