A Little Bit About Ghostwriting... Part II Von: L. Avery Brown

Wichtiger Beitrag

Continued…

So far - it doesn't seem like GW is really something that could be taken advantage of here at BookRix - after all, the vast majority of the members do not write NONfiction. But you have to remember GWs work on all sorts of things! And that includes 'Fiction'

How so?

Let's say you have a story idea - you've written it out in a rough - VERY rough story ... perhaps all you've got are a few lines, a flimsy outline, a... mehr anzeigen

What exactly IS a ghostwriter (GW)?

Basically a ghostwriter is called upon to help someone who might have a wonderful story (or article for a magazine - lots of those nifty interviews you read in magazines aren't actually written by the person who did the interview...) but simply doesn't have the time OR, more likely, the necessary skills to take an idea from a wandering thought and putting it into an expanded,... mehr anzeigen

If you are interested in becoming a GW Please post your name and Genre here. Also Post any information you think may be helpful in pairing you up with a potential Story writer. Such as available time. Preferred type of communication Etc. Note: Do not post E-mail address or Phone number in this thread.
That will be handled Off Site to protect your privacy and that of the story teller.

I will be setting up a special e-mail account for the purpose.

Heather. I write science fiction and fantasy :)- my schedule is somewhat random, but during the weekdays, I have a solid hour each day that I can dedicate.

I do. It happens to be about a ghost and a beauty queen. It's called Secrets. It's a Mystery Thriller. I can be contacted tomorrow afternoon after four pm by my inbox here on BookRix.

Sounds like you and Geordi would make a good match.

Welcome to the Group Colin, Bobby, Meaghan, Ashley, and K Black. Please tell us something about yourselves.

Welcome A Harlow to the group. I read your comment, and I hope you understand that this is not a group dedicated to writing Ghost stories, although Ghost stories are welcome here.

It is a group dedicated to helping people write their stories no matter what they are about.

Right now I am banned from publishing much due health issues. But I remember a cost-free service this group MAY find helpful. As I used it to offer co-authoring, ghostwriting, or collaborating on one of my own stories, which got stuck:

Wichtiger Beitrag

A ghostwriter is a writer who writes books, articles, stories, reports, or other texts that are officially credited to another person. Celebrities, executives, and political leaders often hire ghostwriters to draft or edit autobiographies, magazine articles, or other written material.

Okay! Drum-roll, please!

Starting with #10, these are the top ten things that a ghost writer is not:

#10: A ghost writer is NOT someone who writes ghost stories

#9: A ghost writer is NOT someone channeling the spirit of Edgar Allen Poe

#8: A ghost writer is NOT someone practicing the occult "skill" of automatic writing

#7: A ghost writer is NOT that icon thingy at the top of this Group's page

#6: A ghost writer is NOT a religious... mehr anzeigen

It simply takes determination, I believe. Like drawing. My daughter began scribbling unintelligible lines and squiggles when she was about two, and I kept telling her they were really great. So she kept scribbling. I kept encouraging her, and as she got a little older, I bought... mehr anzeigen

You eventually figure it out and find your writing groove. Never give up - never surrender (Oh wait, that's from Galaxy Quest! HAHA! But still, the sentiment is the same!)

Galaxy Quest! Loved that movie! [and it exploded!...]

that time is near, when your about to do stuff for halloween, when your carving your pumkins-well guess what? ITS TOMMORROW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

judycolella

Nope. Being a ghost writer means helping another person write a story, without your name ever being put on it. In other words, you help someone who may not be very good at writing, but who has something they want to get out there.

For instance, many actors and actresses publish... mehr anzeigen
