Creative Collaboration and Commitment: A Winning Combination

What ‘Hiring a Ghostwriter’  Means

Metal shelf with books

Hiring a ghostwriter signifies a willingness to share ideas through an interactive dialogue with your writing collaborator. It is not enough to present an amorphous collection of facts or generalized statements to your ghostwriter and then entirely relinquish involvement in the project. 

When life presents obstacles to a full commitment and participation, it is best to wait until such obstructions disappear—or, at least, significantly diminish so that you can focus. Communicate your circumstances to your ghostwriter, who will understand and respect your specific issue and work with you to reach the best resolution possible. Rapport, trust, and commitment are the hallmarks of a successful collaboration.

Often, the desire to collaborate with a ghostwriter and the mere idea of a book supersede a prospective author’s ability to contribute. It is important to remember, however, that a narrative does not simply materialize through a well-intentioned desire or even cursory ideas. 

Writing collaboration involves a sustained commitment between all parties. Otherwise, your writing collaborator will be in peril of drowning in an ocean of uncertainty and second-guessing without an anchor, without knowing whether she or he is ‘on the right track’ in the heartfelt task of manifesting your vision. 

While the writing collaborator must be accountable for fulfilling the project, the author’s responsibility involves providing information on the subject matter, copiously reviewing materials, and making necessary changes to suit his or her intention. 

As ‘a work for hire,’ the finished product will be the sole intellectual property of the author, with his or her name designated on the front cover (unless otherwise specified). Acknowledgement or co-authorship is always greatly appreciated, though not required.

The foregoing elements, along with financial commitment, are the foundation of a successful creative collaboration. 

Experience the exhilaration of becoming an author and begin your journey when your heart and circumstances allow you to rise to the occasion.

The process of hiring a writing collaborator (ghostwriter) can be daunting—especially for first-time authors or those unwilling to impart personal or delicate subject matter or

Ideas, Communication, Authorship!

hand writing leadership

So, you have an idea for a story, a book, a screenplay, an essay, or some ruminations to share, but the words are jumbled in your mind, destined for the circular file— if you don’t do something quickly. You are not alone. Take a deep breath, relax, and do what every responsible author does to obliterate writer’s block, time pressures, or other challenges:


When you delegate your writing task to someone
whom you can trust, you relinquish nothing and gain everything, especially the opportunity to work with an expert wordsmith who cares about your ideas and looks forward to serving as a conduit through which they take shape. Together, working as a team, you and your ghostwriter will conquer the sometimes seemingly insurmountable hurdle of putting your thoughts to print.

From first draft to publication, you will be astonished at the manner in which your message unfolds. Teamwork is the key. You and your writing collaborator must be in frequent communication, working in tandem to achieve your ultimate objective of becoming a published author. Along the way, you will witness the formation of a deeply personal miracle:  a product that you are proud to display to the world — in your voice and style, infused with your perspective.

There isn’t any magic formula to the process—no mysteries that must be unearthed. It’s all within you. You are the source of the finished product—your book—the sum and substance of often longstanding latent thoughts and dreams.  

Begin your journey with confidence, find an ally in the process, reach for the stars, and become a published author.



Become A Change Agent


In this fast-paced, often vitriolic era, people do not realize how deeply their words impact others. Words are the whisperings of the heart and mind. Therefore, we must be careful about how and in what context we use them. Ideas, after all, often culminate in action. Here is the trajectory: Idea—>Words—>Action.

Framing a sentence doesn’t merely involve putting a set of letters onto a page. The meaning and significance of each syllable manifest in the overall tenor of the feelings behind the words—that which the author actually intends.

In the law, “intent” is defined as “knowledge and purpose.” With these elements, we can achieve anything—for and in the name of the collective good.

Whether you want to promote a brand, reach a specific target audience, or inspire others, you can achieve your purpose by expressing your perspectives in the written word.  Maya Angelou once said, “when you learn, teach.”

All of us are inherently students and teachers, gleaning from experiences and each other.

When you reach out, you receive an indescribable sense of fulfillment that you can, in turn, confer to others. Books are tools for such communication, and through the words that you project, you can become a change agent—a light beacon in the endless storm and stress of life.

Hire a ghostwriter and begin your odyssey to authorship.
