You may not know who I am, but if you read The Winn Group blog regularly, it’s my words you’ve been reading. You see, I’m a writer, but sometimes the stories I tell aren’t mine. And I’m not alone. There are plenty of writers like me, copywriters and ghostwriters, who can help you put your story to paper.
As you choose a ghostwriter, keep in mind that this person is your voice, so he or she should be able to emulate your style of communication. While you obviously want them to be able to string words together better than you would, you don’t want the writing to be so far removed from who you are that it actually sounds like someone else altogether.
Get to know your prospective “voice” and be sure this is someone with whom you can be yourself and open up. Think of the process as you would interviewing nannies for your “baby.” Your ghostwriter will need to become at minimum a friend and at best an extension of your family. So choose carefully, but don’t keep your story locked up just because you aren’t a writer.
The Winn Group can help you find the right ghostwriter for your story too, so give us a call. We’d love to help!
