5 Ways Your AI Written Text is Obvious, and Here’s How to Fix It

Artificial intelligence (AI) text generators like Chat-GPT are gaining huge popularity these days. With just a few clicks, you can get AI to generate long-form articles, emails, social media posts, and more. However, most times the output is far from perfect.

Some clear signs give away if the text was written by AI and not a human. While AI text may seem informative, it often lacks the coherence, accuracy, and natural style of human writing.

In this article, we will discuss 5 obvious ways you can identify AI written text and techniques to fix these issues.

5 way To Write Better With AI

Here are 5 ways your AI written text is obvious, and here’s how to fix it

1. AI Text Lacks Natural Flow

One of the most obvious signs of AI written text is obvious unnatural flow. The sentences may be grammatically correct but the way ideas transition from one to the next seems choppy or disjointed.

There is no logical flow in how the AI lays out arguments or presents ideas. Often, there will be abrupt topic changes or concepts brought up with no explanation.

For example:

Rahul was walking to the park. He wanted to play football. The latest research shows global temperatures are rising at an alarming rate.

Here the sudden transition to climate change research makes no sense.

How to Fix

– Carefully re-read the AI-generated text and rewrite parts that seem disconnected

– Improve flow by adding transition words and explanations where needed

– Rearrange paragraphs and points to create a more logical structure

Pay attention to coherently organizing ideas – with an introduction, body, and conclusion. This helps improve flow tremendously.

2. Odd Word Choices and Repetitions

Another sign of AI written text that is obvious is the overuse of certain words and unnatural vocabulary. AI models tend to repeat “buzzwords” even when awkward or irrelevant.

You may notice unusual combinations like “additionally, therefore” or the same phrase used over and over. The vocabulary seems forced, not fitting with the tone.

For example: 

Rahul wanted to play football with his friends. Additionally, his friends were waiting for Rahul. Additionally, the football field was nearby. Therefore, Rahul walked faster to meet his friends for the football game.

Here, “additionally” is used multiple times awkwardly. And “football” is repeated excessively when “game” could have been used instead.

How to Fix

– Carefully proofread and replace repetitious or awkward words

– Vary vocabulary using synonyms – don’t repeat the same phrases

– Use words that fit the context and flow better

Pay extra attention to the vocabulary. Even if the grammar is fine, awkward words expose AI writing.

3. Makes Factual Mistakes

AI models generate text based on the patterns they have learned from vast datasets. However, they have no way to discern factual accuracy.

So AI-written articles often include downright false information or numbers presented with no credible sources. They may get common facts like names, dates or events incorrect.

For example:

The Eiffel Tower is located in New York City. It was built in 1920 and is 320 meters tall.

Of course, all three “facts” stated are completely wrong.

How to Fix 

– Double-check any statistics or facts shared

– Google details about people, places, and companies mentioned

– Provide citations for data and quotes used

Not verifying details is one of the biggest giveaways that no human wrote an article. Spending some time fact-checking goes a long way.

4. Lack of Unique Personality 

Human writing has personality. People have different backgrounds, perspectives, interests and communication styles that shape how they write.

On the other hand, AI written text is obvious when the tone is overly formal and dry. It’s almost as if an “ideal” standardized writer created it.

For example: 

The aforementioned individual proceeded towards the playground. He hoped to participate in a match of football with fellow companions. Additionally, the companions awaited the individual’s arrival.

This sounds like something written for a technical document – not a causal story. There is no unique personality in the writing that differentiates it.

How to Fix

– Write in your natural voice instead of trying to sound formal

– Share personal anecdotes or humor when relevant

– Use cultural references that resonate with your target readers

Reading your writing aloud often helps find awkward sections that should be reworked to sound more conversational. Let your unique interests and personality shine through.

5. Poorly Structured Long-form Content

For longer content like 2000+ word guides, AI-generated text starts to fall apart. When there is a big volume of content with headings, numerous points, and overall complex flow – AI just cannot organize it well.

There are logical gaps all over, points not explained properly, no clear takeaways for readers. Essentially a long list of disjointed paragraphs with weak transitions between them.

For example:

Ways to Improve Writing Skills

Writing skills are important. Proper grammar should be used. Vocabulary should also be expanded. One tip is to read high-quality books. Creativity helps writing. Non-fiction books have facts. Therefore, ready them to improve their writing.

This attempted guide has relevant points scattered randomly but no structure. Major improvements are needed to help readers learn anything!

How to Fix

– Have a clear outline before writing long content

– Group points into sections with proper headings

– Include an introduction summarizing key points and a conclusion to reinforce learning

– Use examples and explanations to support the tips highlighted

– Be consistent with formatting using bullet points, numbers, imagery, etc.

With long text, structure is crucial. Take time to thoughtfully frame content for the best results.

The bottom line is while AI writing has potential, it requires significant editing and additions from humans. Look out for these giveaway signs that expose text written by bots instead of actual people. With refinements to improve flow, accuracy, voice, and structure – you can transform AI-generated drafts into high-quality content.

Conclusion

The key is not to be overly reliant on AI. Use it as an aid but not as a shortcut replacement for critical thinking and effort from real writers. The fixes shared above will help blend AI writing with your unique perspective – so readers get value from content that is both informative and engaging!
