As a new user to #Milyin, I wrote my first article yesterday and submitted it after a quick proof-reading. Exactly after 30 minutes, I got an email saying my article got deleted because it was #AI generated. I was shocked because I have never ever used any AI #tool to write an article! Perhaps there was a mistake in their automated check? My first impulse was to raise an appeal as described in their email.

What I did next?

Then I thought, why not verify it for myself. I immediately googled the best AI #detection tools available online. There were too many of them listed, so I went ahead with a few suggestions that appeared to be free and didn’t need me to sign up.

The first two were #GPTZero and #Quillbot which showed that my post was 0% AI generated. Aha! I quickly captured the screenshot, getting ready to send my appeal. Then I decided to try #Scribbr and I was astonished. The results said that my #article was 67% AI generated. What!! Do I really #write like a machine? Or do AI detectors simply flag anything that appears to be perfectly written? 😉

Jokes apart, I tried out three more AI detection tools. All of them reported varying degrees of AI #content. I started to wonder – what was I doing wrong? I went back to some of my older articles on other websites and did AI checks on a few of those. Strangely, all my posts on film #reviews reported lower AI content of 30% or less. But any #general #topics got flagged as greater than 70% AI generated.

The difference was that all my movie reviews had some sort of mild #emotion in them, excitement, dislike, disgust, whatever. I wrote those reviews with #genuine #passion, purely based on my #personal #experience. Obviously, they sounded less #robotic and more #human-like.

Moment of enlightenment

As #content writers, we tend to get most #research materials online. Then we attempt to write on such topics. Unsurprisingly, that #online research work heavily influences our choice of words. Not to mention that school curriculum has always trained us in writing essays in the third person. How much of #creative #writing did we really get in our exams? Same for jobs, all work emails have to sound super formal and precise, with #bulleted text to make it readable.

That was my moment of realization – that I have been writing like a #robot throughout my life. The chaos of #human thinking is missing in my writing. I just cannot work up the #passion unless it’s a topic I’m mad about.

Lessons learnt

If you are writing for websites that have strict policies against AI content:

  1. Try to write only on those things that you are absolutely passionate about, whether or not you are a seasoned writer. You will automatically write from your heart.
  2. Validate you content on multiple AI #detectors to identify robotic writing. Edit the content till you get it right.
  3. Try to break free from your usual writing style once in a while. This will make you more #versatile as a writer.
  4. Write in the first person rather than third person and narrate your own experiences, that humanizes the tone.

If you are wondering, yes I did check this very article on AI detectors, even though I wrote them from scratch.
