Do you have a ton of ideas you’ve been meaning to write about? Do you have the opportunity to publish something and no time to write? Do you wish you were better at organizing your thoughts? Would you share your ideas if you could write better? Is your career limited by your ability to create quality written content?
Did reading all that just now make you kind of sweaty? Are you currently muttering to yourself about how you can totally handle this writing stuff on your own? Have you been telling yourself that for a while now? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you may need a ghostwriter.
Ghostwriters are facilitators. We help bring projects to fruition. I often meet people who say “I’ve been meaning to get x and y written, but I keep putting it off.” Maybe you don’t have time. Maybe you’re not a great writer. Maybe you’re stuck for some other reason. A ghostwriter will get you unstuck, move you forward, re-inspire you, boost your confidence and most importantly, get your writing project done.
Some of you are saying, yeah, but really, I can do this myself. The problem with that line of reasoning is that sure, I bet you actually could do it yourself, but at what cost? How long will it take you to get your writing done? And when it’s finally done, will it be as good as you’d like it to be? Perhaps even more important, which of your current responsibilities will you need to ignore in order to make room for writing?
Here’s the thing… It’s not cheating to hire a ghostwriter. You have natural talents and abilities, and you should be focusing on those. If writing’s not your strongest suit, consider outsourcing it, in the same way you’d outsource a managerial role or an accounting job. A good ghostwriter will help you get your thoughts organized and in most cases expand on them. As you untangle your ideas with the help of a ghostwriter, connections that were previously obscured will come into focus, so you can include them in your writing
narrative. It’s sort of like doing a bunch of weed whacking and raking that results in you discovering beautiful young buds you’d planted but forgotten about that are suddenly ready to spring out of the ground.
Honor your own expertise while appreciating those of a good ghostwriter. Spend your time and energy effectively, by focusing on what you do really well, and leave the writing to someone who can do a great job, quickly. It will be a collaboration you’ll truly appreciate.
