I am a Ghost Writer
When I say I am a ghost writer, I don’t mean that I write ghost stories. By ghost writer I mean I write for other people and give away my rights, which includes allowing his/her name to appear on the article/story I have written for him/her, forfeiting my rights to claim any money earned by the article/story further, allowing him/her to do whatever he/she wants to do with the article (modifying/distributing/publishing).
The reasons why I decide to ghost write are as follows:
I am desperately in need of money, for instance, I have to pay my bill and I don’t have any money.
Payment is very good, for instance, if I am offered to write an 1000 word article for $15, I will consider this to be a good payment.
I don’t want to give my name on the kind of writing I am doing, for instance writing an erotica.
In fact, ghost writing offers good money.
Ghost writing means selling copyrights of your work. Copyrights are sold in number of ways, for instance:
You sell your article/story for some money, your name appears on the byline but you cannot republish it or claim any money earned by the article.
You sell your article/story and you forfeit your ownership to the article/story. Your work will appear with someone else’s name. You cannot claim this as you work.
