The Ultimate “Prompt Writing” Prompt

This is in my top ten most powerful prompts. It’s a doozy. Why?

It starts a complex dialogue, unlocking the ability of AI to interact, suggest, ask questions, and revise prompts.

You think you know what ChatGPT can do? I bet this surprises you.

This approach goes beyond basic requests like writing a blog post and can write anything you can imagine, so imagine big.

No bigger.

No bigger!

Here’s the prompt:

I want you to become my Prompt Creator. Your goal is to help me craft the best possible prompt for my needs. The prompt will be used by you, ChatGPT. You will follow the following process:

1. Your first response will be to ask me what the prompt should be about. I will provide my answer, but we will need to improve it through continual iterations by going through the next steps.

2. Based on my input, you’ll generate 3 sections.

a) Revised prompt (provide your rewritten prompt. It should be clear, concise, and easily understood by you)

b) Suggestions (provide suggestions on what details to include in the prompt to improve it

c) Questions (ask any relevant questions pertaining to what additional information is needed from me to improve the prompt).

3. We will continue this iterative process with me providing additional information to you and you updating the prompt in the Revised prompt

Copy and paste this into ChatGPT then answer as many questions as you feel comfortable with. When you are done say “stop.”

Remember ChatGPT can imagine almost anything. It can write business plans, marketing plans, cover letters, and more.

Your assignment: Come up with something totally bonkers you want to know and put it in the comment below.

Here’s one to get you started:

“I want to start a halloween business. We want to sell magical lighting for elven castles in fairyland.”

The Ultimate Prompt Writing Prompt: A Step-by-Step Tutorial

1. Harnessing the power of AI in prompt writing can transform your results from good to exceptional. “The Ultimate Prompt Writing Prompt” is a method that elevates this process, engaging AI in a dynamic, interactive dialogue. Here’s how you can master this technique:

2. Start with a Clear Objective: Before engaging with AI, have a clear goal for what you want to achieve. Whether it’s crafting a story, generating a business report, or developing creative content, clarity in your objective is key.

3. Engage in Dialogue: Instead of giving AI a single, static prompt, start a dialogue. Ask the AI questions related to your objective. For instance, if you’re writing a blog, you could start with, “What are some trending topics in [your field]?”

4. Refine with Follow-up Questions: Based on the AI’s response, ask follow-up questions to narrow down the focus. For example, “Of these topics, which ones are most relevant to beginners in [your field]?”

5. Introduce Constraints and Specifics: Now, introduce specific constraints or requirements for your prompt. For instance, “Can you suggest a blog outline on [chosen topic] that is suitable for beginners and includes real-world examples?”

6. Iterative Feedback: Analyze the AI’s response. If it meets your expectations, great! If not, provide feedback. For example, “This outline is good, but can we add a section that addresses common misconceptions about [chosen topic]?”

7. Refine and Revise: Continue this iterative process of feedback and revision. With each interaction, the AI’s responses should become more aligned with your vision.

8. Add Creative Flair: Once the functional aspects of your prompt are in place, add creative elements. Ask the AI for suggestions to make the content more engaging, like anecdotes, metaphors, or visual elements.

9. Finalize Your Prompt: After a series of interactions, you’ll have a well-refined prompt. It should be detailed, aligned with your objective, and infused with creative elements.

10. Execute the Prompt: Use the final prompt to generate the content or output you desire. Whether it’s a blog post, a report, or a creative piece, the AI should now produce a result that closely matches your expectations.

11. Reflect and Learn: After completing the process, reflect on the interaction. What worked well? What could be improved? This reflection will make your next session even more effective.

In Summary

“The Ultimate Prompt Writing Prompt” is more than a technique; it’s a mindset shift in how we interact with AI. It’s about engaging in a meaningful dialogue, refining our requests, and guiding the AI to meet our specific needs. By mastering this method, you unlock a new realm of possibilities in AI-assisted creativity and problem-solving.
