You, yes you, can write a book!
January 27, 2020
Or a film script. Or whatever you want. Really.
Now why, you might ask, is a ghostwriter who makes a living turning the stories and ideas of other people into books and screenplays, making a statement like that?
Am I trying to talk myself out of a job?
Yes and no.
See, the thing is, I really do believe anyone can write a book. I don't think anyone can write a good book, but as they say, art is in the eye of the beholder.
My point is that if you're able to convey your idea to me, as a ghostwriter, then you can probably convey it to anyone. If you can tell your friend about an idea, and you can write down that idea, that's the first step to turning that idea into whatever form you want it to be.
Now obviously there's a lot more to it than that, but the journey of a thousand miles...you get the idea.
Every novel, every memoir, every screenplay, started with an idea, that turned into a story, that became what it eventually became.
And they all start with you - or someone like you - who wanted to turn their inspiration into something bigger.
Potential clients call all the time with stories in various forms. Someone who wants help with their life story has the entire story in their head since they lived it. A potential novelist might only have an idea they want to expand. But they both have a story to tell, and they contact us because they need help to tell it.
We are always open to talk ourselves out of a job if a client wants to try and do it without paying a ghostwriter. Some clients just don't have the time or inclination, and that's okay, too. I said we don't mind talking ourselves out of a job, but we don't mind taking one if that's your preferred method of progress!
And sometimes, a client we encouraged to complete their version might need an editor or a script doctor, and that's when we come in.
Whatever stage your project is in, we at The Best Ghostwriters are happy to help, even if it means we're not getting paid. Because we're a group of individuals - you know - people, just like you. We're not some big company where you get lost in the shuffle. We don't subcontract the work to inexperienced writers somewhere and take half the fee for ourselves, leaving less to go into the actual work.
We are individual, independent ghostwriters, and consultations are always free. If you want to know how to do it yourself, we'll tell you. If you want to hire us to help, we'll do that, too.
We'll treat you right, whether you hire us or not.
