This article will explain the steps to generating a Writing Sample and a Manuscript based on your Book Outline. Writing a manuscript is the reason why we put so much work into the previous steps. It's what makes you the money. Hiring a Ghostwriter used to be the best way to get a high quality manuscript written if you didn't want to write books yourself. The average time for a ghostwriter to write one book is 4-6 weeks.

Now, with the help of AI, we will get it done in less than a day! You don't have to hire, organize, or supervise to get a quality manuscript that your readers will rave about!

Have you watched the Ghostwriting lessons in Module 3?

Many of the important review processes you would take with a ghostwriter, we want you to apply to reviewing your ai manuscript.

Generating a Writing Sample

  1. Before you generate your manuscript, you the software will create free writing samples for you. This will allow you to get a sense of the style of writing you like before you choose a sample to proceed with.

    If you don't have a preference for writing style, you can choose a default style. The default writing style is a neutral tone that is not influenced by any of the 'select my own writing style(s).

    Feel free to play around and generate more then one until you have found a writing style that you like.

If you choose to select your own writing style(s) you would like your manuscript written in based on your customer audience and personal wishes, you can select one (1) or a combination.

Note: You may not choose tones that conflict with each other. If you attempt to select conflicting tones, the conflicting tone (to the first selected) will grey out.

(see formal and informal below)

2. Once you select your tone(s) and click generate, the writing sample will generate for you to review. Read through the sample. Change the writing style selections if you are unhappy with the language style and click generate again. The rest of the manuscript will be written in the same style, so it is important to ensure you are happy with the writing style before proceeding to the next steps.

3. Make sure you are on the chosen sample generation number you wish to use before you proceed to the next step. If you have generated multiple writing samples with different styles, you can toggle through them on the top bar above the writing sample.
