Co-Author aND writing partner needed

Postby guardian » Mon Sep 08, 2014 10:40 pm

Hello all,
First of al I am not a writer. I have good to great ideas but suck at putting them on paper. I have a novel idea that I need to get out of my head and on paper. Any takers?

what you're looking for is a ghostwriter... and they don't come cheap... or free!

if you have thousands of dollars to spare you can get your novel written, but there will be no guarantee a paying publisher will take it on... or that if you self-publish you'll make back any more than a tiny bit of what you spent, so you risk tossing those thousands down the drain...

anyone who'd do this for you for free will almost certainly not be a good enough writer to do a decent job of it... and if you do go ahead with anyone, don't let them write a single word till you have a good, tight collaboration contract signed and sealed...

sorry that's not what you were hoping to hear, but it's the sad truth...

love and consoling hugs, maia

I appreciate your concern but I never said anything about someone writing it for free or being a ghostwriter or not helping out with ideas. Sorry, but your jumping to conclusion s.

I mean what I say, co-author. I can write some things down and they can fix the messes.

Ideas are free. Great writers never run out of them. Why do you think someone would be willing to write for you? I say this because you say you'll write some stuff and someone else will fix. How much of the novel will you be writing? How much will the real writer be writing and editing? In every partnership, the roles have to be well defined.

ditto what terry said!

and what you're looking for IS more a ghostwriter, or at least a 'rewrite' expert, than a 'co-author,' if all you can turn out from your ideas are 'messes'...

I give up. You all are stuck on me wanting a ghostwriter that is has become tiresome.

If a poor writer could not put together sentences the way they should be, what would you advise him? That he needs a editor? I have an , just an idea, how does partners start out? With no idea??? No thought of what they should write about. I as for help and in return, I get ridiculed.

Never mind I even asked.
