Have You Ever Met a Ghost?
One of the things I have done off-and-on for the past 15 years or so is helping people write stuff. You can call it whatever you like -- an editor, a script doctor, a research assistant. As far as I'm concerned, I'm a ghostwriter.
This is considered, by some, to be a dirty word. Some see the whole enterprise as a little shady, a little dishonest. Here's what I know: I have helped a lot of good people get good ideas in print. The ideas were theirs; the words were often mine. And I've gotten to the point where I don't care who gets the credit. I just want to help these folks get good ideas out there where they can do some good.
I've worked with some pretty high profile folks who you may have heard of. I've worked with people who are highly specialized, people you've probably never heard of. I've done a bestseller or two. I've done projects that never saw the light of day. I've learned, and I've taught, and I've paid my bills, and I've helped people who struggle with how to put into words the ideas that they have.
And I'm saying all of this because I've recently finished a project, and I'm sort of sitting idle at the moment. I've got lots of time in the next couple of months to work on something. My rates are reasonable and (sometimes) flexible. If you've got a book inside of you that's been trying to come out, I can help.
