Paradox of Choice
Having too many choices can be just as paralyzing as having writer’s block.
When working with an AI-Writing-Assistant tool, the number of ideas and directions can become overwhelming. You write a little. Then you ask your assistant to write some. But the assistant sometimes gives a bunch of ideas that perhaps you hadn’t thought of. And you become unsure as to the direction to go.
What to do?
I was creating one piece and thought that I was overwhelmed by the possible directions–at first.
Then I realized, I feared taking one direction and missing out on the others (taking one road and missing out on the other directions).
I chose one path. Instead of deleting the other stuff, I pushed it down with a bunch of paragraph spaces. That way it was at the bottom in case I wanted to use some of it later. But it was not in my way. And because it was at the bottom, it didn’t affect Shortly.
I did end up using parts of it by scrolling down and copy/paste those parts back into the main piece. Once I was done, I no longer cared about the remaining stuff at the bottom.
