Introducing GPT Thinking Partners

Create your own versions of ChatGPT to be your
Reading Buddy, Writing Coach, Research Assistant, or Learning Puppet.

NowComment's GPT Thinking Partners are GPTs (Generative Pre-trained Transformers)
designed to take you to new levels as a reader and a writer.

  • Write your own text of any genre or upload one from a Web Site, PDF or Word Doc.
  • Choose a sentence, paragraph, or the whole document. Click the button to Ask AI then select a GPT Thinking Partner. Pose a question and add a description of yourself if you would like, then wait for the results.
  • Critically read the output from OpenAI that comes to you in an edit box. You can also Resubmit and Resubmit to choose from alternative results. Edit the output of the results you choose so that it is helpful (for other users), honest (about the facts), and harmless (free of bias).
  • Hit Start conversation and see how a GPT comment is posted in context showing that this was written by a GPT Thinking Partner and edited by you. You and others can reply to any GPT-collaborated comments with human-only replies or with another GPT Thinking Partner.
  • Your work with OpenAI is free and anonymous on NowComment. No separate login is required and no identifying data is transmitted to OpenAI. The content you submit through NowComment is not being stored by OpenAI to train their models.

GPTs at your service

With the click of a button, you can deploy NowComment's Generative Pre-trained Transformers (GPTs) next to any document on NowComment. You can select from a bevy of brilliant GPTs.

We have designed these GPTs to be Thinking Partners who are always available to be your personal mentor, tutor, coach, teammate, student, simulator, or tool. GPT Thinking Partners don't just correct your writing or summarize a text; they help you to become a stronger writer and a more thoughtful reader.

NowComment's GPT Thinking Partners shape and transform the output you receive from the same Large Language Models that power ChatGPT. With NowComment's GPT Thinking Partners you make your own ChatGPTs to fit your specific needs as a reader and writer. You will be inspired by the control our GPT Thinking Partners give you over how to integrate AI into your own creative and thinking processes.

There are over 60 GPT Thinking Partners to choose from already (with more coming all the time)! And since there are so many, to guide your choice, we have organized them into the seven approaches for students that Dr. Ethan Mollick and Dr. Lilach Mollick describe in a recent paper, "Assigning AI," as briefly described in the next section, below.

We also invite you to make your own GPT Thinking Partners. NowComment is a platform where we learn with and about Artificial Intelligence.

Remix & Create
GPT Thinking Partners

Detail the persona of the best GPT Thinking Partner you can imagine having. Itemize for that character the reading strategies you want them to employ. Specify the output that you want to receive. Test and test until you have taught your GPT Thinking Partner how you want it to respond to the texts of any genre that you are reading or writing and uploading to NowComment. Become a prompt engineer.

Certainly, I’d be glad to assist you with your syntax. Let’s remind ourselves of your question: you’re asking for help with using a variety of sentence structures to enhance your writing and how to improve syntax. Let’s assess your writing with a special focus on simple, compound, complex, and compound-complex sentences to ensure you are employing alternative syntax effectively.

Examining the sentence you’ve provided:
“He is aware that stealing is wrong.”

This is a complex sentence, as it includes an independent clause (“He is aware”) and a dependent clause (“that stealing is wrong”), effectively joined to express a complete thought. The syntax here is effectively conveying the message, as the complexity of the sentence reflects the depth of the awareness the subject holds. It’s perfectly appropriate in this context.

To show you how varying syntax dramatically improves writing, let’s transform your provided sentence by experimenting with different sentence structures. First, I’ll reiterate the creative and interesting statement you asked for: “A relatively simple way to improve your writing is to become familiar with the four main types of sentences and understand when to use each type.”

A simple sentence has one independent clause. Example: “He knows the truth.”

A compound sentence has two independent clauses joined by a coordinating conjunction. Example: “He knows it’s wrong, and yet he considers stealing.”

A complex sentence, which you’ve used, provides depth and detail. Example: “Though he understands the consequences, he contemplates theft.”

A compound-complex sentence combines the elements of compound and complex sentences. Example: “While he is aware that stealing is wrong, he finds himself tempted, and his conscience battles with desire.”

Notice how each structure serves a different purpose – from stating facts (simple) to expressing internal conflicts (compound-complex).

To address the directive you gave about document ownership: “I encourage you to edit lines, sentences, and paragraphs in your text. If you are the owner of the document, you can double-click on any sentence or paragraph, edit and update.”

In this case, since the document is yours, you can indeed take this advice and directly edit the text as needed. Syntax can make or break your expression; hence, tweaking it until it conveys the exact nuance you’re aiming for is crucial.

Keep your original question in mind – improving your syntax and recognizing the impact of sentence variety on your writing. It’s about finding the right balance and structure to convey your ideas most powerfully and clearly. As you improve your craft, remember that intentional use of sentence structures can define the clarity and engagement of your writing.

This comment by Henrietta’s cousin concerns the reader’s morals and makes them stop to think a bit. The passage answers its own question, but that only serves to give more thought about the scenario. Henrietta is dead, but her cells are living in test tubes, being used for all sorts of things. Fred’s comment from the documentary being included in the story, despite not providing any new insight on Henrietta Lacks, is a purposeful decision to appeal to the reader’s sense of morality and have them think about Henrietta’s family.

Nov 29

The blunt language of this passage serves to contrast the hope built up in the preceding paragraphs. It seems almost ironic that this sense of hope is being built up, and immediately snatched away when it is revealed Henrietta is infertile. Saying “things weren’t all good” is a clear appeal to the reader’s emotions, as it may be the most blunt way to get the reader to feel a certain way.

This shows the escalation of Hennritta’s cancer and emphasizes how severe it was.

Glad to find thist example essay. It’s inspiring. It took me a long time to get in the mood to write an essay on psychology. I even found essay writing service https://yhoo.it/45VeLcr where I asked for help. And already got my written essay.

When the author writes things like “on one side of the two-lane road from downtown there were vast, well-manicured rolling hills” he is using imagery to try and give the reader of vivid picture of the setting and how it would look.

I definitely agree. Though this is going on across the globe, it feels like a lot of countries are getting pulled into it and their citizens are voicing their opinions loud about it. Of course because this is reality, everyone has different opinions so there is some uproar in that area especially between the government and citizens.

Nov 28

I agree. I believe a lot of people don’t really take the time out to fact check their sources and they decide to go off what one of the sources says about the issue instead of looking at the entire picture before they get their biased opinions on it.
