I continue to search for a free AI writing assistant that creates accurate content. If your blog post needs to be accurate, the AI assistant should include accurate facts. But how much time will you save if you need to check all the facts?
Hyperwrite is another AI writer that has a free trial period, so I asked it to write a blog post on exclamation marks. The results were mixed.
After creating an account, I ran through the tutorial. The tutorial’s purpose was to introduce me to the features, but it was not intuitive. A short video would be more helpful.
Since my goal was to try another AI writer, I stumbled through the tutorial and eventually figured it out. However, if I were simply taking this for a test drive, I would have probably quit. At this point, the writing assistant looked similar to g-mail’s prediction feature.
Next, I gave HyperWrite a prompt—5 Things You Didn’t Know About Exclamation Marks. I have used this prompt with all the AI Writing Assistant attempts to have a fair comparison.
Hyperwrite wrote the following post.
5 Things You Didn’t Know About Exclamation Marks
We all know what exclamation marks are, right? They’re those little punctuation marks that we use to denote excitement, or to make a point. But there’s a lot more to them than that! Here are five things you probably didn’t know about exclamation points.
1. Exclamation Marks Have a History
Exclamation marks have been around for a long time! The first known use of them was in the 10th century, in a work called the Cantilena. They were used sparingly back then, and it wasn’t until the 15th century that they began to be used more frequently.
2. Exclamation Points Can Be Used for More Than Just Excitement
While exclamation marks are often used to show excitement, they can also be used for other purposes. For instance, they can be used to show surprise, emphasis, or even to add a bit of humor to a sentence.
3. They’re Not Always Used at the End of a Sentence
While we often see exclamation marks at the end of a sentence, that’s not always the case. In fact, they can be used in the middle of a sentence, or even at the beginning!
4. Exclamation Marks Can Be Used More Than Once
You might think that you can only use one exclamation points at a time, but that’s not the case. In fact, you can use as many as you want! Just be careful not to overdo it, or you might end up with a sentence that’s hard to read.
5. They’re Not Always Used in English
While exclamation marks are used quite frequently in English, they’re not the only language that uses them. In fact, they’re used in many other languages, such as Spanish, French, and German.
So there you have it! Five things you probably didn’t know about exclamation marks. Now that you know a bit more about them, make sure to use them appropriately in your writing.
Conclusion—My Thoughts on the free version of this AI writer
The onboarding process was not intuitive. However, a well-written blog post makes up for a learning curve. Did I get a publishable blog post?
First, AI writers aren’t good with facts. They were trained on the internet, but the purpose was to create language, not present accurate information. HyperWrite avoids making many factual statements by writing a generic blog post. But the one fact it mentions is not factually correct.
According to Britannica, cantilena were vocal forms of the 15th century. Exclamation marks are end-stop punctuation and are rarely used in the middle of a sentence (!), and when they are, put parenthesis around them.
And you probably knew that you could use more than one exclamation point. It seems a safe bet that other languages also use exclamation marks. And, of course, they show more than excitement. Not a big surprise there.
So like most other AI writers, HyperWrite is not good at writing blog posts that require research and accurate factual information.
Linked-In Post About Exclamation Points (and Free AI Writers)
For fun, I asked the free version of the AI writer to create a LinkedIn post. Here is the result:
