Jan 4, 2023 [Major update]

Upgraded editor to new version. Only applicable to new articles created after this update.

  • Grammarly is integrated with the new editor, so you can easily fix grammar / spelling issues.
  • Easier to modify lists/headings/etc markdown shortcuts.
  • Buttons are on the side, and are easily accessible even if you've scrolled down a lot.
  • Hotkeys make it easier to have AI paraphrase or expand text for you. More AI tools to come. A lot more.

Did an experiment with Wraith Scribe where I try to use this AI to do freelance writing for me. It is now in the 'bonus docs' tab. See which platforms I use to make $160/hr and which platforms to avoid.

Added these things:

  • Option to include / exclude images in your article.
  • Choose fast/slow AI mode. Fast mode is less accurate, but creates an article much faster.
  • Option to pick tone of article.
  • AI has been upgraded to produce better, longer texts. Hopefully the sections flow a little bit more natural now.

Fixed these things:

  • Sometimes, AI will make alt text for images with newlines. This crashes the editor. This is now fixed.
  • Sometimes, the AI will generate HTML which will crash the editor. This is now fixed.

Fixed CSRF token bug.

In addition, added a button to turn bullet points into a paragraph. I had some feedback while stress-testing this from clients that I have 'too many bullet points.' So now, when you use our editor, you can just highlight a list of bullet points, click the de-bullet button, and it'll turn your list of bullets into a long paragraph. If the length isn't long enough for your liking, just click it a few more times to find a length that's suitable to your liking.

I've merged the 'write by title' and 'write by keyword' pages into one page. Previously, you can only write with an H1 / blog title OR write with an SEO keyword.

But now, you can write with:

  • An H1 title / topic only.
  • SEO keyword only.
  • Both an SEO keyword + article title. This is nice because if you're not satisfied by the AI's title suggestions, you can just put your own title in and still it SEO-optimized.

I've also added length options for the article. You can choose between 500, 1000, 1500, and 2000 words. This is nice because you can choose the length of the article you want to write. If you're a freelance writer, you may have some clients that want longer or shorter articles. In the future, different lengths will cost a different amount of tokens. But right now, they cost all the same. The 500 words will cost about half what it costs now, and the 1000 words will cost the same, 1500 will be about 1.5X and 2000 words will be about double.

Nov 2, 2022

I've added a new feature where writing a post with keywords will automatically do the following for you:

  • Google your keyword for you and analyze top-ranking competitors' blogs.
  • Give you suggestions based on competitor data which keywords to use, and how many times.

The recommendation's aren't absolute and you're free to delete the secondary keywords while editing it on our editor. For example, some keywords that might show up a lot might not be relevant to the specific thing you're trying to write about. Example: You're selling a baby playpen but it suggests "portable baby playpen." Your product may not be portable, so you might not want to expend the effort optimizing for that keyword.

The intent of this is to give you enough semantic keyword and SEO ammo so you don't have to pay a bunch of money for individual, separate services just to get your on-page SEO right.

Sept 14, 2022

Added redundancy check. If the AI generates outputs that are extremely repetitive, it'll try again until it doesn't. So theoretically new articles generated should no longer be ultra-redundant. Please let me know if you run into something like this for your text still:

Some AI generated text.

Some AI generated text.

Some AI generated text.

Some AI generated text.

Some AI generated text.

Threshold for 'repetitiveness' is 5 trigrams (also prevents keyword stuffing). But let me know you feel the threshold should be lower. Also, if you let me know when the AI is still being redundant and I can give you credits back to make new articles while I fix any other scenarios I've missed. Thanks!

2nd update for the day. Fixed some 'poison text' that will prevent the article from rendering (i.e. special chars like ${}.).

Sept 13, 2022

Made some bug fixes to the AI-assisted editor. I've also decided that AI-assisted editing will be free for now. This is because I want to encourage users to use it and so I can catch more issues before charging for it. The +20% bonus credits each month will remain the same though and will be unaffected.


I'll be doing some bug fixes with AI generating strings that may crash things. And also working to fix issues where the AI just pumps out the same sentence again and again.

Added AI-assisted editing to our built-in editor. 2 options:

  • Rephrase: Rephrases highlighted section.
  • Expand: Reads up to 500 words prior to the highlighted section and gives suggestions of what should follow.

It's fairly straightforward. You highlight something and you click it. And the AI will take care of the rest. But for those visual learners, I've created a 2 video minute demo.

More Credits For Everyone!

Since these functions do cost a fair amount of compute, it can't be free unfortunately. But I understand that if you've got, say, 500 tokens, you might end up with 496 after an edit, which will disallow you from creating that last article. Thus, shortly after this update, I'll manually add 20% to all user's remaining credits. Additionally, all renewals will now come with an extra 20% credits. More specifically:

  • Hobby Plan: 500 credits/mo -> 600 credits/mo
  • Professional Plan: 3000 credits/mo -> 3600 credits/mo
  • Agency Plan: 30000 credits/mo -> 36000 credits/mo

This means each article will have some buffer where you can spend 20 credits using AI-assisted editing, and you're still free to edit things manually if you want to save up credits.

Sept 1, 2022

Overhauled the AI system that generates the content. Now, the AI will target 1250+ words per article with high probability of success. It'll also penalize words previously seen in the article. This minimizes the probability that phrases/words will be repeated. This is good to minimize redunancy, but bad for sprinkling keywords across the article. So this is a delicate balance.

Actually Up Next...

I still plan to do the things I stated August 10th. But I realize that if you tune one parameter of the AI to optimize one aspect of an article, another parameter does more poorly. I'll continue to tune the AI model so that it's likely to generate a good article, in all respects. But even then, AI output is stochastic and results aren't guaranteed. You might run one run and it is spectacular and another run yields bizarre results.

So before I find a solution to this long-term problem, in the short-term I'll probably add AI-assisted editing in the built-in editor, along with short video tutorials that tell you what buttons to press in what situations. This way, the AI will seed a good article and instead of editing the article manually, you can just use AI to speed up the editing process.

Overhauling the AI system means that it will be more or less trivial later on to provide users options to adjust the target length of the output article. So be on the lookout for that as well!


AI has improved to give better results with higher probability. August 10th roadmap still in place, but postponed in lieu of higher-priority features, which is to speed up the process of making a good-quality article.

Aug 12, 2022

Quick update: to make things less unpredictable, all articles will cost 100 tokens. In the old system, the articles cost an average of about ~5000 tokens. So if you had "X" old tokens, you'll now have ceil("X"/5000 * 100) tokens.

Aug 10, 2022

  • AI will now pull in royalty-free images when generating new articles. Alt text is included as well.
  • Enhanced editor so that clicking on images brings up a window that'll let you search royalty free images / easily swap out images. The window also allows you to conveniently change the alt text. This was really hard to do, so I hope it's mildly useful! Let me know if you see any issues!
  • Deprecated generating the article on the same page as where you make the article. Instead, you'll be redirected to the finished article. It's hard to maintain 3 slightly different variations of the same thing and I want to encourage users to use the editor more, as I'll be adding updates to it. See 20-second demo video here.
  • Your articles will now autosave. It'll autosave in 2 ways: 1) every 15 seconds, and 2) if go to another page. So you can edit your article on Wraith Scribe and come back to it later with your changes saved!

Known Issues That I'll Fix Soon

  • Summary sometimes trails off midstream.
  • Sometimes, the AI likes generating malicious strings, like ${this}. This'll break the javascript on the website. If you run into this, just let me know and I'll modify your article for you to get rid of these strings.

Up Next...

AI is pretty slow to generate an article nowadays. It's basically a tradeoff between speed and accuracy. The faster the AI goes, the more likely there will need to be edits. I'll add a slider so the user can choose between a more quickly generated article (30 seconds) all the way up to the slowest option (90-180 seconds)

I think the token system is confusing. I'll overhaul it so that each article costs 100 credits so it's more clear.

More editor enhancements. First is an SEO helper that'll let you know how well the article is doing relative to the target keyword. If you know Yoast SEO, it'll be a version of that basially.
