Even with Priming and Type Framing, there are still many different ways for a scene to play out, and TextSpark won't necessarily know which one you want... but you're the author here, so you want to make sure you're guiding it in the right direction as you go! That's one of the reasons we keep the generated word count low: so that you can remain in the driver's seat and control where the action is headed.

Whenever TextSpark suggests a line, you can think about how it fits into your story and predict how that text will shape the reactions of the other characters in the scene. Then you can either cut it, edit it, or let TextSpark keep going.

TextSpark was designed as a creative co-writing tool, not a story generator, and so you should always be an active participant in the writing. If you want a character to say a specific thing or you want a specific activity to occur, it's easiest to just add that line yourself.

Often when you're writing a scene, TextSpark might suggest something you don't want. It might suggest that your characters say or do things that just don't fit their personality, or it might inject action that doesn't make sense for your scene.

The easiest thing to do is step in and snip parts of lines that don't fit with earlier plot details or established character personas, which is as simple as highlighting and deleting something (or pressing the "Undo" button and having it try again). TextSpark will merrily continue onward, completely forgetting the detail it tried to add that didn't make sense and incorporating your modified text into its next suggestion.

If you're over-relying on the generate function to get words down, your scene might start going in the totally wrong direction (or even into the wrong genre). This is where aggressive Word Herding and your skill as a storyteller come in again, because you can recognize when this is happening from subtle text cues and redirect the AI co-writer.

Hint: You can "re-prime" the scene by adding sensory or visual cues into the text to prevent this, such as referencing fingers brushing off a sword to remind TextSpark that it's dealing with fantasy, or dropping a hint of romantic tension in to nudge it back toward the romance scene you want.

By actively nudging and guiding the writing process as you generate, you can stay in the flow of your story without having to stop and think about what comes next as much and get words down much more quickly!

If you use these three tips as you experiment with your new AI co-writer pal, you'll be getting great results and be blowing past your old daily word goals in no time at all.

But that's not the only reason to write with TextSpark. Be sure to also read all about the ways that TextSpark can help you stay in the flow and improve your writing craft!
