I was writing at a really young age, but it took me a long time to be brave enough to become a published writer, or to try to become a published writer. It's a very public way to fail. And I was kind of scared, so I started out as a ghost writer, and I wrote for other series, like Disney 'Aladdin' and 'Sweet Valley' and books like that. ~ K.A. Applegate
Ghost Writer quotes by K.A. Applegate
The author apologizes for being unable to afford a ghost writer, which explains the lack of a distinctive prose style. ~ Richard Armour
Ghost Writer quotes by Richard Armour
Write a book online or help to write a book to give the Right Shape of the Imagination. Contact ghost writer Jerry Payne. ~ Jerry Payner
Ghost Writer quotes by Jerry Payner
Does being a paranormal author make me a ghost writer? ~ Adrian Lee
Ghost Writer quotes by Adrian Lee
Early in her career, Muse engaged her skills for technical purposes, such as document translation and schematic visualizations for government entities. She continued to write and paint poetically, in secret, using her pen name, Muse. An inner compass is evident in her work. Pieces reflect both past and present dilemmas; while showcasing her victories in overcoming these obstacles ~ all from her faith based perspective. Light touches of modernism play hand in hand with old world strokes, offering highly visceral readings. ~ Earl M. Coleman
Ghost Writer quotes by Earl M. Coleman
It is through the ghost [writer] that the great gift of knowledge which the inarticulate have for the world can be made available. ~ Elizabeth Janeway
Ghost Writer quotes by Elizabeth Janeway
The final option to have your book completed is to hire a ghost writer. The challenge with this option is that it is important to note that your voice IS an integral part of your branding. When you hire someone else, what your readers will ultimately get is their voice. When they see you later at your website or on your social media, your voice will not be the same. This will trigger a feeling of inconsistency when relationships need to be built upon trust and authenticity. Your audience will eventually come to think you are not the "real deal" and will find another to replace you. Finally, your book is a springboard and launching pad to greater things such as speaking, interviews, a product line, etc. Will your ghost writer be available for all of that as well? How will you be able to "ghost write" your way through an interview? Hence the reason I stress speaking in your own voice. You may think you are not perfect, but your authenticity will speak in volumes to your followers and they will be customers for life if they see your true being. ~ Kytka Hilmar-Jezek
Ghost Writer quotes by Kytka Hilmar-Jezek
In the mid-nineties, I quit my job as a senior feature writer at 'The Mail' on Sunday in the U.K. and became a 'ghost writer,' collaborating with politicians, pop stars, psychologists, soldiers and sporting legends who needed help in penning their autobiographies. ~ Michael Robotham
Ghost Writer quotes by Michael Robotham
Carter, who'd never seen a ghost, nonetheless found the idea of them wonderful. Who wouldn't want to see a ghost? Whenever he visited the park at night, he saw nothing. On weekend afternoons, he detoured through its rambles on his way to the ferry, watching the boaters, the Sunday painters, the wild and frantic children, and he thought how odd it was that the same joyful places, minus sunlight, became frightening. ~ Glen David Gold
Ghost Writer quotes by Glen David Gold
It seems disingenuous to ask a writer why she, or he, is writing about a violent subject when the world and history are filled with violence. ~ Joyce Carol Oates
Ghost Writer quotes by Joyce Carol Oates
A German writer observes: The noblest characters only show themselves in their real light. All others act comedy with their fellow-men even unto the grave. ~ Marguerite Gardiner, Countess Of Blessington
Ghost Writer quotes by Marguerite Gardiner, Countess Of Blessington
The wicked will run to the iron bridge, but it will collapse under their weight. The righteous will cross the paper bridge, and it will support them all. Paper is the only eternal bridge. Your purpose as a writer is to achieve one task, and one task only: to build a paper bridge to the world to come. ~ Dara Horn
Ghost Writer quotes by Dara Horn
As the writer, you can choose the word that seems best in terms of meaning, nuance, sound, etc. As the translator you are unlikely to find a word in your language that exactly matches, so that you are always making a decision about which meaning or nuance to choose, or emphasize, over the others. ~ Ann Goldstein
Ghost Writer quotes by Ann Goldstein
The past is a funny thing, Ruby. It is nature's most underestimated ghost. It is still very much alive. Its heart still beats, it haunts. And it is always impacting, always dictating the future, which eventually becomes the past. You see, it multiplies, this enigma. It grows larger and larger until at the end, it swallows your entire life. Every day, every moment becomes the past. ~ Amy Gail Hansen
Ghost Writer quotes by Amy Gail Hansen
I intensely dislike the word 'critic,' because it puts you in an antagonistic position to artists. I've learned everything that I know about art from artists ... I see myself as an advocate and an activist and a writer. ~ Lucy R. Lippard
Ghost Writer quotes by Lucy R. Lippard
The question is, why do you think you can't be a writer?"
"To be a writer, you need readers."
"I'm no painter, then. Who ever looks at my little dumb pieces of shit? ~ Barbara Kingsolver
Ghost Writer quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
I want to be a writer someday. ~ Andrea Barber
Ghost Writer quotes by Andrea Barber
What the fuck was that about?" Vaughn said, standing over me.
"I pissed him off."
Dark blue eyes flicking to the restroom, Vaughn reached back and scratched at his shoulder. "All I know is when Judd came back from Texas, he was all hollowed out. Like a ghost, I guess. This morning before his bitch fit, he looked alive again. Whatever you said or did, can't be that big a deal compared to the shit mood he's been in lately."
Glancing at the restroom, I wanted to go back to before I said the words. My honesty ruined our happy morning.
"You can't take it personally," Vaughn added when I just stared at the restroom. "You know how moody Judd is. Always crying and bitching about something. A freaking drama queen."
Grinning, I looked up at him. "Thank you."
"Men like us aren't used to pretty girls looking at them like you look at Judd. He's not sure what to do with you and you're just gonna have to be patient while he figures shit out."
"Okay," I said, studied him. Whereas Judd hid a deep sorrow and iced heart behind his walls, I sensed Vaughn concealed a barely contained rage. He smiled easily enough, but it was a ruse. Just like Judd who acted like the world didn't touch him, Vaughn faked his exterior to avoid showing anything to the world.
"Why do they call you Outlaw?" I asked.
Vaughn sighed. "Because it's better than calling me dead man walking."
"I don't understand."
"You don't need to, darlin. The drama queen ret ~ Bijou Hunter
Ghost Writer quotes by Bijou Hunter
I think with pictures; I'm a very lousy writer. If I write without pictures, I become this pathetic chick sitting somewhere trying to be interesting. ~ Marjane Satrapi
Ghost Writer quotes by Marjane Satrapi
The writer is initially set going by literature more than by life. ~ Flannery O'Connor
Ghost Writer quotes by Flannery O'Connor
To have come from Ireland no matter how long ago is to be of Ireland in some part forever. ~ Frank Delaney
Ghost Writer quotes by Frank Delaney
Buffy the Vampire Slayer showed the whole world, and an entire sprawling industry, that writing monsters and demons and end-of-the-world is not hack-work, it can challenge the best. Joss Whedon raised the bar for every writer - not just genre/niche writers, but every single one of us. ~ Russell T. Davies
Ghost Writer quotes by Russell T. Davies
What do you want? What are you willing to give up to get it? Writing requires you make sacrifices. Be prepared to work hard to be a writer. ~ Sandra Brown
Ghost Writer quotes by Sandra Brown
We have no need for genius - genius is dead. We have need for strong hands, for spirits who are willing to give up the ghost and put on flesh ... ~ Henry Miller
Ghost Writer quotes by Henry Miller
We need to be acquainted with the promptings of the Holy Ghost, and we need to practice and apply gospel teachings until they become natural and automatic. These promptings become the foundation of our testimonies. Then our testimonies will keep us happy and safe in troubled times. ~ Allan F. Packer
Ghost Writer quotes by Allan F. Packer
A man who writes a story is forced to put into it the best of his knowledge and the best of his feeling. The discipline of the written word punishes stupidity and dishonesty. A writer lives in awe of words for they can be cruel or kind, and they can change their meanings right in front of you. ~ John Steinbeck
Ghost Writer quotes by John Steinbeck
As a musician and a guitar player, I can noodle as well as anybody. But from my background as a session musician, I always try to play what is called for by the lyric and listening to the song. As a writer, that's what I do, too. ~ Richie Sambora
Ghost Writer quotes by Richie Sambora
Nothing gladdens a writer more than a thought that can become pure feeling and a feeling that can become pure thought. ~ Thomas Mann
Ghost Writer quotes by Thomas Mann
I think it is more like a ghost that has been following us both. Something vague that we're not seeing, something more like a feeling. ~ Conor Oberst
Ghost Writer quotes by Conor Oberst
I hold any writer sufficiently justified who is himself in love with his theme. ~ Henry James
Ghost Writer quotes by Henry James
3. The séance was for real and everyone knows it. But they won't discuss it because
A. they don't trust me,
B. they don't like me, or
C. they're playing it down because they're plotting to get me alone after school, duct tape my mouth, and throw me over the fence so Annaliese can rip out my throat with her ghostly teeth.

Okay. Now that's paranoid. ~ Jeannine Garsee
Ghost Writer quotes by Jeannine Garsee
Almost All Christians want to taste the fruits of revival but only a few will do what's necessary to achieve it. ~ Joe Joe Dawson
Ghost Writer quotes by Joe Joe Dawson
If you want to be a writer-stop talking about it and sit down and write! ~ Jackie Collins
Ghost Writer quotes by Jackie Collins
It was official. I now wanted to murder a ghost, a notion I'd discarded as unlikely only twenty minutes before. (Cat) ~ Jeaniene Frost
Ghost Writer quotes by Jeaniene Frost
England gave me a language and literature, the basis of what I am as a writer, but when I started writing more directly about my own experience, it wasn't England so much as what went before. ~ Ruth Prawer Jhabvala
Ghost Writer quotes by Ruth Prawer Jhabvala
I still remember you
as a little girl
who overwaters plants
because she doesn't know
when to stop giving. ~ Trista Mateer
Ghost Writer quotes by Trista Mateer
I'm convinced that people see the ghosts of themselves all the time, but most just chose to block them out. The words don't even make sense to me, and I know it's true. When I was seven years old I saw the ghost of myself at the age of eighteen. Ever since that day I've kicked myself for not asking questions. I've no idea what my eighteen-year-old self could have told me at that point - perhaps nothing at all. Still, I can't help but think of it as a lost opportunity. Somehow there was a slight fluctuation in the current, and two of me bled through the fabric at once.
Trying to figure out the meaning behind such events can drive you mad, because there is no answer. Perhaps it was some sort of hiccup. Then again, perhaps I was making some Herculean efforts to reach out to myself, and that was all I could manage. ~ Damien Echols
Ghost Writer quotes by Damien Echols
There were always men looking for jobs in America. There were always all these usable bodies. And I wanted to be a writer. Almost everybody was a writer. Not everybody thought they could be a dentist or an automobile mechanic but everybody knew they could be a writer. Of those fifty guys in the room, probably fifteen of them
thought they were writers. Almost everybody used words and could write them down, i.e., almost everybody could be a writer. But most men, fortunately, aren't writers, or even cab drivers, and some men - many men - unfortunately aren't anything. ~ Charles Bukowski
Ghost Writer quotes by Charles Bukowski
In 1913, when Anthony Patch was twenty-five, two years were already gone since irony, the Holy Ghost of this later day, had, theoretically at least, descended upon him. Irony was the final polish of the shoe, the ultimate dab of the clothes-brush, a sort of intellectual "There!" - yet ~ F Scott Fitzgerald
Ghost Writer quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
There are certain types of genres that are impossible in China. Ghost stories, something too graphic, too violent, and of course if it's too political. Other than that, it will be fine. ~ Wong Kar-Wai
Ghost Writer quotes by Wong Kar-Wai
A writer has a use for his experiences that most civilians simply don't; he or she discerns material in situations that others simply live through. Perhaps there are some who disapprove of this, but without this double consciousness, literature would not get made at all. ~ Walter Kirn
Ghost Writer quotes by Walter Kirn
I think we can fairly conclude that writer-director Joss Whedon didn't make 'The Avengers' for me. ~ Steve Erickson
Ghost Writer quotes by Steve Erickson
There's some instinctive attraction that draws you, as a writer, to your subject. And the attraction usually has to do with some primal personal thing that, of course, you have no idea about. In the end, the piece always comes down to the one or two sentences you struggle over. The sentences where you try to say explicitly what it is that the two of you, subject and writer, have in common. Those are the sentences that you just bang your head against the wall over until you get them right. It's very hard to make that distillation but that is actually what your job is. Without trying to pin the person like a butterfly to the wall, to sum it up. If I can do that, then I feel satisfied. To give the subject a reality in the form of a sentence that is like a piece of rock crystal or a prism. ~ Judith Thurman
Ghost Writer quotes by Judith Thurman
You Can't Change Your Life... Until You Change Your Heart, and You Can't Change Your Heart... Until You Change Your Mind! ~ Latif Mercado
Ghost Writer quotes by Latif Mercado
Since then he had been walking with a ghost: the miserable ghost of his illusion. Only he had somehow vivified, coloured, substantiated it, by the force of his own great need – as a man might breathe a semblance of life into a dear drowned body that he cannot give up for dead. ~ Edith Wharton
Ghost Writer quotes by Edith Wharton
I think I was 16 when I had the thought of maybe being a writer. And this is complicated, something I only now understand, because when I was young, having dyslexia and not knowing it made reading such an ordeal. ~ Philip Schultz
Ghost Writer quotes by Philip Schultz
The biggest misconception that people have about the literary life is the romance of it. That a writer has this large world available to him or her of people, of ideas, of experiences, of interchange of ideas. ~ Walter Mosley
Ghost Writer quotes by Walter Mosley
I'm a writer, and the subject is less important than the act of writing itself. ~ Jess Walter
Ghost Writer quotes by Jess Walter
Your whole duty as a writer is to please and satisfy yourself, and the true writer always plays to an audience of one. ~ William Strunk Jr.
Ghost Writer quotes by William Strunk Jr.
Shakespeare was not a genius. He was, without the distant shadow of doubt, the most wonderful writer who ever breathed. But not a genius. No angels handed him his lines, no fairies proofread for him. Instead, he learnt techniques, he learnt tricks, and he learnt them well. ~ Mark Forsyth
Ghost Writer quotes by Mark Forsyth
As a writer, putting words on the page is how I pay attention. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
Ghost Writer quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
No book can be written till it wants to be written, till it shouts to be written, and raises up a persistent din in the writer's head. And then, if you want peace, you just have to pull it out and freeze it in print. Nothing less would do. ~ Jyoti Arora
Ghost Writer quotes by Jyoti Arora
