AI Prompts: Examples to Get You Started

As artificial intelligence continues to evolve, emerging tools have piqued the interest of millions of people all over the world. Professionals in a variety of fields are using AI to automate time-consuming and tedious tasks, and people are also using these tools in their everyday lives to unlock their creativity and generate creative writing pieces and visual art. But in order to use generative AI tools, you need to be able to create a prompt. A prompt is a clear and concise command with instructions that tell the AI exactly what it needs to do to complete the task at hand. Whether you're using tools like ChatGPT to create text or Midjourney to create works of art, you need to know how to write AI prompts. Examples can help you to understand how to start writing your own prompts if you've never done it before. But since many AI tools are iterative, you should expect to tweak your prompts as you go along to get the results you're looking for.
