Is ghost-writing 1-word or two? Either way, in addition to the blogging I do, I also ghost-write. I ghost-write for two celebrity/gurus and just this week, I penciled a deal (which hopefully will be re-written in ink, soon) to author a memoir for a pretty awesome guy who works in my industry.
Turns out this is not uncommon. There are many successful men and women who are really great at being successful at what they do, and all of them would like to write a book they can brag about, but despite all their success, writing is totally intimidating.
Or, some of them just plain can’t do it.
I can. Meaning, I can write.
I was halfway through a sales book with a friend (and I kinda dropped the ball), but now I’ve got a real deal with a real timeline and the subject of the book could make for a really interesting project.
Have you ever read Tuesdays with Morrie? Me neither, but lots of people did. As I understand it, Mitch Album had a favorite professor from his college days and years later, Mitch, then a successful newspaper columnist, got back in touch with his old professor and wrote a book about him. And that book was a mega success and inspirational.
It is my hope this book can be something like that.
I have a stack of speeches, essays, newspaper and magazine articles, letters, stories, and quotes that I’m supposed to turn into a book. Fun.
Just promise me you’ll buy a copy when I finish. OK? OK.
