My experiment with AI tools through numerous meetups and sessions online covered interesting topics like ChatGPT, Canva, OpenAI, Quillbot and more. But I’ve discovered there’s a lot more you can do.

For starters, you can turn the text in your book into an Audiobook. I’ve covered this in a previous blog post and you can read all about how to convert your text into an audiobook here.

That said this post is going to look at how you can turn your words into a video. I will cover step by step all the things you need to do to create a video with your words in just 60 seconds.

Step 1 To Create a Video With Your Words — Generate a script

Firstly, you can use text that you already have written. It could be a piece you’ve already worked on or you can generate your own text using ChatGPT or Canvas AI content creator.

You could begin by putting prompts into ChatGPT or Canva unless you already have a topic in mind. For instance, you can start by naming the genre and what your central characters will be if it’s a fiction piece. Or if it’s non-fiction ask the AI to generate topic ideas around your selected idea.

You can build on this query to create an outline or draft and then build on it by asking the AI to generate more prompts.

For more about how to generate this kind of content, you can read up about it in my blog post on AI tools for authors. The next step is to convert this text into audio.
One important thing to keep in mind once you’ve generated the content from an AI tool is to use an AI detector to check how authentic your work is. It’s vital to make changes to the text it generates to make it sound more human and to give it your own voice. Remember AI is just a tool to give you ideas. The real writing comes from how you polish it up afterwards.
