Hiring a professional ghostwriter is a popular choice these days for people with a story to tell or personal experience to share. It often seems that the more personal your story, the more difficult it is to share the writing process. Ironically, this is often the time when you need the best possible collaborator. Allowing a ghostwriter into your story calls for an extraordinary degree of trust. Ghostwriting is, first and foremost, a partnership, and a personal connection is essential to the success of this partnership.
When you are passionate about your story or your experience, the ghostwriter, as your collaborator, will naturally tap into your passion and bring that passion into his or her writing or editing. If a ghostwriter isn’t moved by your passion, he or she is not the right fit for your writing journey.
Without this personal connection to you and your project, understanding the depths of your story or your experience is not possible. This is the first and most important step in any ghostwriting collaboration. It begins with building a relationship. It begins with caring about you and your story. You’ve poured your heart and soul into your book, and feeling like your ghostwriter doesn’t understand you or your goals is a more than discouraging; it is detrimental to the overall success of your project. Don’t let it happen.
Many self-help or how-to books are based on intimate subject material, such as relationship successes and failures, religious choices and self-identifying questions, or even weight control, eating disorders, and other health issues. Partnering with the right ghostwriter insures that your message and your words will be respected and that your goal of creating the very best book possible is a mutually shared goal.
