Is Ghostwriting Ethical?

Is ghostwriting ethical?

That’s an interesting question. I am a ghostwriter, and I written 16 books for other people which they then published under their own name.

When we are talking about books, there is nothing unethical about ghostwriting. In fact, you could bet that every celebrity, politician, sports person, CEO, or anyone else famous that has “wrote” a book used a ghostwriter.

Why Is Everyone Talking About Ethical Ghostwriting?

These people use ghostwriters for variety of reasons. First and foremost, they don’t have the time to write a book. Let me tell you from my own experience that putting together a book is not easy by any means. Brainstorming the idea, researching it, writing the first draft, revising it numerous times, getting it edited and proofread, revising it yet again, and finally getting it published are things that are best done by professionals.

Second, a ghostwriter is a professional and knows how to write. A CEO may know how to run a company, and actress may have won an Oscar, and a politician may have been elected, but odds are none of them have ever written anything of any consequence in their life.

A ghostwriter takes the ideas and concepts of a person or group and creates the book or story around them.

Why Should You Hire a Ghostwriter?

Without ghostwriters, many stories would never be told at all. It’s doubtful that any politician would write a book. Very few, if any, actors or actresses would tell us their stories. The lives of sports celebrities would be mostly unknown.

You could think of a ghostwriter as kind of translator between the mind of a person or people and the written word. A ghostwriter takes ideas and creates interesting stories from those.
