Things I wrote about the tools I’m using/was using:
- Sudowrite Tips and Tricks
- My first days with Sudowrite (June 2021 – October 2021)
- FAQs After ChatGPT Exploded on to the scene. (And information on interview requests.) February 1, 2023
Tools I have used but no longer use:
- Quillbot – to rephrase sentences. (Stopped using in favor of ChatGPT and Claude rewrites.)
- Chatbase.co –
“Just upload a pdf or add a link to your website and get a ChatGPT-like chatbot that can answer any question on it.” I use this to talk to my previously written books with ChatGPT – it’s easier than scouring for “that scene with that thing.”(Not quite there yet. Stopped using it altogether for books until the technology moves ahead a bit, but you’re welcome to try it. Disclosure: it’s an affiliate link.)
Tools I currently use:
- Sudowrite (Disclosure: it’s an affiliate link.) –
