  • Ghostwriter: putting your best ideas into words | Writing, life and other animals
    usually appear on the finished work although there are exceptions Where high profile journalists have ghost written a celebrity autobiography for instance you might see the journalist credited as a co author in much smaller print How does it work Typically the client approaches the writer about a particular writing project although this sometimes happens the other way around if a ghostwriter spots a particularly marketable opportunity They agree a fee for the work based either on a flat fee for writing the work a share of royalties from sale of the completed work or sometimes a combination of the two Then the client provides the information interviews anecdotes thoughts and ideas documentation facts and figures etc and the ghostwriter collates it all and writes the finished work Depending on the terms of the agreement the ghostwriter may also work with the client to find a publisher for the work Online ghostwriting Ghostwriting isn t confined to the print media there are also ghostwriters hard at work online churning out content for other authors It s a way for busy people to raise their profile and keep their websites blogs and newsletters full of interesting informative and entertaining content without having to do it all themselves If you re a an experienced and talented writer ghostwriting can be a great way to supplement your own writing If you re a busy person with a story to tell then hiring a ghostwriter could be the answer to your problem Need a ghostwriter for your writing project Drop me a line Technorati Tags ghostwriting writing writer for hire publishing Be Sociable Share Tweet Share this Click to share on Twitter Opens in new window Share on Facebook Opens in new window Click to share on Google Opens in new window Related Posted

  • Plain English is the key to effective business communication | Writing, life and other animals
    and conditions of employment without agreement contained in their proposals of October 6 2008 or any variation thereof In this connection you should note that the sanction covers strike action and the full withdrawal of labour with the placing of pickets on the company locations and for industrial action which is for limited work stoppages with the withdrawal of labour and the placing of pickets on company locations The nature timing and duration of any or all of the foregoing will be determined by the Union Again please clearly and in English this time Reading the above made my heart sink and my head hurt If workers or anybody else for that matter really want to get their message across they need to stop trying to sound important by throwing in formal over elaborate and superfluous verbiage much as I did there and start writing clearly in plain easy to understand English The latest entry in the Plain English Campaign s Gobbledegook of the week reads as follows By aggregating a range of public and commercial datasets including global addressing and Directory Enquiries voter databases commercial data and documentation including dates of birth and voice based verification solutions 192 com Business Services delivers the most comprehensive global online ID verification solution available from www 192 com I think the SIPTU letter trumps that with ease it s in a league of it s own Or rather it isn t which I guess is the material point here All too often business and workplace communication is bloated jargon riddled dross written by people who think that throwing long words into overly intricate prose makes them sound more important than they really are But here s the rub when the name of the game is getting your message across you re audience doesn t care how important you sound or how many syllables you can cram into a single sentence They care about the clarity with which you deliver the essential information People are busy they don t have time to decrypt your missive they need to understand it instantly first time round Communicating clearly with your target audience whether that s your customers your co workers or your employer is critical to any business and never more so than during hard economic times So before you send anything letters e mail blog posts comments anything at all read it through to yourself at least once aloud if necessary and ask yourself truthfully does this achieve what it sets out to do efficiently and effectively If the answer is no perhaps you should stop and take another look And by the way if you happen to be a national union executives looking to serve strike notice on the CEO of a major company and you d like some help writing your letter you could always drop me a line Technorati Tags writing business communication Related articles by Zemanta Aer Lingus staff to vote on strike action Aer Lingus to axe 1 500

  • Freelance columnist available for online or offline column | Writing, life and other animals
    options this was hardly a surprise but it was a bit sad If I m honest it was something of a bitter sweet moment for me The column has been a part of my life for so long now that not having to write it every week will be strange and of course there s the fact that it leaves a hole in the monthly finances that I ll have to plug but I d been feeling for some time that the column had run it s course It was getting harder to sustain the momentum When you ve been writing on the same subject a father s perspective on parenting for nearly seven years it can be difficult to break new ground and while a good writer will always manage to keep things fresh for the reader the process of writing becomes a bit stale You stop enjoying it as much it requires more effort and becomes less rewarding So onwards and upwards to bigger and brighter things I guess Now anyone out there fancy paying me to write a weekly online marketing social media column or perhaps something on Ireland s Wildlife Go on make me an offer My very last column will run in the WOW supplement of tomorrow s Evening Echo Wed 03 02 2010 and will be posted here shortly thereafter Be Sociable Share Tweet Share this Click to share on Twitter Opens in new window Share on Facebook Opens in new window Click to share on Google Opens in new window Related Posted by Calvin at 12 00 Tagged with column evening echo freelance Writing Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your Comment You may use these HTML tags and attributes a href title abbr title acronym title b blockquote cite cite code del datetime
