AutoCrit Inspiration Studio:
Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, the Inspiration Studio uses generative AI to come up with ideas and suggestions. This is completely different to the nature of AutoCrit’s core editing reports.

No. The Inspiration Studio will not generate prose for you. Instead, it’s like having a creative partner in the room as you develop a project.

Perhaps you have a great idea for a character, but can’t find a setting that really fits them.

Or maybe you have an awesome idea for a setting, but can’t quite think of a story that could take place there.

Maybe you’re in the middle of a scene and wondering how to mix things up a little. The Inspiration Studio can offer a series of different directions for you to consider, based on what you’ve already written.

Wherever you’re starting from, the Inspiration Studio helps you build on your spark – but it’s still up to you to write the story.

Developed from scratch with custom prompting so it behaves in only very specific ways, it’s here to assist the writer, not replace them.

In our experience, we’ve found that generative AI prose is overwhelmingly bland, lacking a real sense of soul, and more often than not stuffed with the kind of problems AutoCrit has always helped to prevent.

That might change in the future, but for now it’s not at all what the Inspiration Studio is about.

Instead, it’s next-generation idea, um… generation.

Now there’s a sentence so awkward it could only have been written by a human.

No, it won’t. We’re just as protective of the work of our members as we are of our own. This AI model is not trained on user input, meaning nothing you enter into the Studio is retained by the AI or used to feed future output.

No, it doesn’t.

The Inspiration Studio is totally optional and only kicks into gear when you ask it to. There is no crawling or persistent AI monitoring of your writing allowed within the AutoCrit platform.

That depends on your perspective. We recognize that as creatives, we sometimes need a little boost and inspiration can come from the most unlikely of places. The blank page can be a cruel villain.

In most cases, you might not use exactly the suggestions offered to you by the assistant – but they may be a perfect launch pad to set your own imagination ablaze.
