Ghostwriting

The most important things are the hardest to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them — words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they’re brought out. But it’s more than that, isn’t it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you’ve said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That’s the worst, I think.

This quote by Stephen King  embodies the challenge all human beings face. In our interactions with others, a lot of our thoughts and ideas gets lost in translation. Which is why we are blessed to live in a time when books exists.

Books enable us spend enough time with the writer, allowing him/her to get comfortable enough to open up their world to us. And we sit and follow them on the ride. This is why it is imperative that books are worth the reader’s time.

Why do people hire ghostwriters? 

Writing is hard. Not everyone can do it well, and it’s okay to admit this.

Writing is also time consuming. Whenever you read a well written piece of work, it probably took the writer a huge chunk of his life to write. Not everyone has that kind of time or can afford it.

But most of all, writing is important. We use words to convey our thoughts, ideas and beliefs with the world. From the point where thoughts enter our heads to the point where we decide it is worth documenting and sending out into the world, those ideas start decomposing.

My goal as a Ghostwriter is to help people capture their thoughts, polish and present them in the best ways possible.

Not being able to write or not having the time are no longer good enough reasons for you to leave us in this world without sharing your story, ideas and thoughts with us.

Everytime I’ve sat with people to write their books, it has been an immensely satisfying and enriching experience for both parties.
