If you have engaged a ghostwriter before, you know that these guys hold the key to the project’s success. A ghost writer will either breathe life into your work or help you burn it. It’s therefore paramount that you’re certain of the ghostwriting services you’re about to employ.
A good ghostwriter is okay. However, okay is not enough when what you want is excellence. Choose someone who understands your subject and more-so one who is interested in the story. When a ghost writer is intrigued or enjoys the story,you can rest assured that you’ll get top-notch results.
Ensure also that your ghostwriter is able to capture your voice right from the start. Test them if you must. Be it a book, screenplay, scripts, articles or reports, your voice must be prominent, not the ghost’s. If this isn’t the case, then the project ceases to be yours and that’s not good for you.
A ghost should want what you want. Their ideas may be considered but you hold the last word. Never allow the ghost’s ego to stand in the way of your project. If he/she is not willing to let you run the show, you should be worried. Or maybe you should just drop them. This I say because some ghosts will sometimes overstep their mandate and try to overhaul your story. A ghost’s job is not to judge you but to simply listen to you and write.
That said, you will need to be firm about how far the ghost can go as far as altering your work is concerned. You should be clear from the start on how much leeway you’re allowing them. This ensures the ghostwriter is able to know their limits and you get what you want .
