ChatGPT Missed This Key Ingredient While Writing My Blog Post

I didn’t make you scroll through the entire post to know what that key ingredient is.

If you believe in the human connection that a writer tries to build through their words, you would have guessed my answer by the headline itself.

I tried ChatGPT and asked it to write a blog post for me.

I first gave it a prompt, then asked it to sketch an outline, and then, it expanded the outlines for me.

I kinda loved it.

But there was a problem. It was too good, unlike my writing.

My pieces have imperfections. Those unnecessary line breaks, paragraph breaks; the words that my vocabulary is familiar with and love using; above all, less flow of information and overflow of life experience and emotions.

How can AI write about the experiences that I have lived and the emotions I have so deeply felt?

It can’t. Even if I explain the tone, the emotions, and the experience in the prompt, it can’t add my imperfections to it.

“To err is human.”

And it’s my flaws that make me human. I never expect my pieces to be perfect. I would forever procrastinate under the burden of perfection.

Not many people would read these articles, so why let the weight of perfection affect my mental health and productivity?

That’s so not me.

People’s unavoidable opinion in real life is enough to negatively affect my mental state and use the internet and writing as an escape.

I cannot let the internet be a place of stress as well.

Writing is my therapy, I cannot ruin it for the fear of unknown people’s opinions or spending time trying to chase the illusion of perfection.

Lastly, no, ChatGPT’s content isn’t perfect either. In fact, it is far from perfect. I just meant that even if it writes well, it cannot have MY imperfections in its work.

And the most ironic part about using Open AI is that it asks you to confirm that you are a human. It makes me smile in frustration every time I answer the captcha.
