What does a ghostwriter do? … We tell a lot more than just ghost stories. We tell “Your” story in your words, only better!

simple book
Your life story doesn’t have to be filled with blank pages!

Ghostwriting is an art, a calling, and an act of dedication to the writing craft with millions of stories out there crying to be heard, especially if there is a message that can relate to a wide demographic of readers.

First of all, ghostwriting is for memoirs, transformational, spiritual, psychological, philosophical, and business books. All nonfiction. The book needs a purpose, a genre, and an audience. The ghostwriter can give you ideas to further your scope and readership as well.

Self-help books are always in demand. “Let me tell you my story to inspire/motivate/teach you to do as I have done. It can work for you too!”

If you want to promote your unique business, tell your story.

If you have an individual take on the arts and sciences, share your story.

If you have an idea that begs to be released, create your platform intertwined with your life’s ambition in your story.

If you don’t have time or writing expertise, let a ghostwriter tell your story.

Even for the accomplished writer, having a professional writer interview you, organize your thoughts and major life events, and present your theme in the strongest, most dramatic manner possible will enhance your story, your message, and attract readers.

It’s amazing how much of “ourselves” we just take for granted. Many people think that the things that come easy to us are of little consequence. When in reality, those traits and talents that are automatic for us are usually our strongest skill set. These are the skills, personal experiences, opinions, and philosophies that are “us” … our lives … our stories. This is what you need to share. This is what you care about. This is your uniqueness that others can learn from or use to further their uniqueness as well.

For example, with a professional editor/proofreader, you get a second pair of eyes to make sure your writing is as clean, accurate, and consistent as possible. With a ghostwriter, you get a reflection of yourself at your very best, including all facets of your mind, heart, and soul from a living, breathing mind, heart, and soul who researches you in your entirety with an unbiased, unemotional grasp of reality.

Ghostwriting = telling your story, only better! In your voice, with your words, with clarity, directness, and emphasis on the important message that will launch your business, your principles, and your creative endeavors. Telling your story without compromise, shyness, hesitation, or even too much ego. It reveals your story as the truth it always has been from another point of view. A viewpoint that presents you at your very best!

The End of a Chapter…Tricks-of-the-Trade; “What does it mean?”

This phrase is used so metaphorically these days, we writers almost lose our grasp of its significance in our world!

And yet it is our world, our very breath of life.

As an editor my opinion is where we end our chapters is more important than where we begin; even though, of course, that initial first sentence is crucial too. The end, however, is what keeps the pages turning. Without that, we are lost.

So, fellow writers, take that book you’re working on and flip back through the ending of your chapters. Does it compel you to go on, to turn the pages in excited anticipation?

Another exercise that is very useful to authors of all genres, fiction and nonfiction, is to grab a book, published or unpublished, that you wrote some time ago. Perhaps even your first book? Look at the Chapter endings and the beginnings as well. I think you will be amazed at how far you have come as a writer. If not, then this is something you need to address.

Just some advice on the Tricks-of-the-Trade that aren’t tricks at all … just good writing practices for all levels of writers.

I am available through my blog and comments area for any questions on the fundamentals of writing, editing, formatting, and publishing advice.

Expressions of Love … Go With It! (Original song by Deborah A. Bowman)

kissing woman and man
Go With It!

Lost in time

Encased in rhyme

Breathless sigh

Don’t wonder why

Go with it!

Lovely face

Crowded space

It draws your eyes

Beauty emphasized

Feel the beat,

Go With It!

Soul enraptured

Moment captured

Eros tosses a dart

Straight to your hearts

Sing together,

GO WITH IT!

 

The Future …💖

Where do I go from here?

What do I really hold dear?

Decisions creep up on us from afar

And we always wonder who we really are?

Changing and rearranging everyday

Our moods in fickle alignment

But such allows us refinement!

Follow your heart!

Plan Your Future With Your Heart!

 

Fickle Inspiration

Fantasy Inspiration

I see the trinkets that surround me

But do I really see?

These are so precious to me

They inspire and capture my creativity

But not today

I have no words to say

But those that get in the way

My inspiration does not shine

In silence I seek the divine

And all will be well in time

My Annie doll will speak her mind

And tell me of her trip from Ireland

When she came alone to Ellis Island

The castle will sing its tune, the dancer spinning

And a new story will be beginning

To weave its way into my soul

The faerie pixie will rise and flow

Through ancient dreams and glowing scenes

Dancing on the sun’s rays, amidst the colors of the rainbow

The Kindle will light with fire: reds and yellows; golds and blues

I’ll slip on my glasses so I can see true

The beautiful forests and haunted hills

I’ll experience thrills and wills and chills

As a new world comes alive inside my brain

Some of you may think me insane

As the keyboard beckons and calls my name

Not all the words have gone up in flames

I just had to write them to know their game

Of hide and seek, catch me if you can, find me if you dare

The words will scatter unless you show them you care.

NOW THE STORY LOST IN TIME…

HAS RETURNED TO SPARKLE AND SHINE!

Deborah A. Bowman
