For some odd reason these jobs keep appearing in my newsfeed and I'm just stunned by the arrogance of those clients. 10$ for 1000 words? Own all the rights? grrrrrrrrrrr...it kind ' a makes me think mate look for another profession if ya can't write your own book!!! (No I don't ghostwrite)

I've considered hiring a ghostwriter for a bunch of scripts I have rolling around in my mind. I don't think there's anything wrong with hiring somebody to create something for you if you have a vision that you can't quite deliver on your own. But yeah, $10 for 1000 word is a bit cheap. I'd be looking to pay at least $11... maybe more.

Scott E - glad to see you're okay.  I understand that there was an earthquake in Myanmar yesterday.

Cheers Mary! Hadn't actually heard of the earthquake until you mentioned it, not keeping up with the news as much as I should. Still alive and safe and sound though. In Siem Reap at the moment... temple town!

Most ghostwriting clients are IN another profession. They're doctors and lawyers and business professionals and technology experts who want to share information and bolster their professional profiles with articles, books, etc based on their expertise but aren't writers.
