Have you ever wondered how to master the voice of a ghostwriting client?
When you’re starting out, ghostwriting can be a little tricky. You have to learn how to think and write like your client, and separate that from your own thoughts and writing style.
It’s a lot like a ventriloquist trying to master the skills to bring a doll to life.
When I picked up my vent-figure doll “Dexter Darling,” I had a lot to learn to develop his voice and personality. In the beginning, I wasn’t very good at it. But it’s a skill you can learn, and so is ghostwriting.
After plenty of practice, Dexter Darling and I hit the road to perform at local library shows.
When the audience enjoyed his one-liners and funny antics more than anything I had to say, I realized the process was a lot like ghostwriting.
