Most non-writers still tend to think books are written by lucky souls, unburdened by life's pressures, typing away for endless hours in a quiet cabin with only coffee and the muse to keep them company. But anyone who has actually tried to write a book knows how it's more often done: You produce pages whenever you can manage to steal a few minutes away from the demands of your job, family, friends, hobbies, and basic human needs. Maybe, like Faulkner, you're writing your novel on an overturned wheelbarrow between factory shifts. You're frazzled because you haven't slept, your friends are tired of hearing about your book ideas, your dog is perpetually begging for a walk, and sometimes you're frustrated because you just gave up hours to sit at the computer and somehow you only have a dozen words to show for it.
The reality: Books aren't written in a vacuum. You only have so much time, and real life gets in the way.
For this reason, among others, it's especially frustrating when the process grinds to a halt. Maybe you've managed to finish a full draft of your manuscript—if so, throw yourself a party (really)—but now you're not sure what to do with it. Or you've gotten a good start, but the process got muddied along the way, and now you're not sure how to finish. Maybe the desire to write is there, but you don't know how—or don't have the time—to get started.
The good news is that POV Certified Ghostwriting can help you break through the walls that life puts in front of your writing. In addition to full-service ghostwriting, we also offer three à la carte services designed to get your project unstuck:
Analysis & Recommendations (A&R) — Discussed in detail in this blog post, the A&R offers a clear-eyed, comprehensive analysis of your project's strengths and weaknesses, and provides prioritized, actionable recommendations for how to fix your issues, emphasize your strengths, and get the most out of your book.
Book Proposal — Discussed in detail in this blog post, POV Ghostwriting can produce a professional-quality, submission-ready book proposal for your finished manuscript that includes a synopsis of your book, a detailed marketing and promotions plan, an analysis of your competition, an author biography, and a personalized query letter.
Coaching — At any point in the process, including before you've written a word, POV Ghostwriting is available to coach you through the process of writing your book yourself. Through regular one-on-one meetings, we can answer your toughest questions, provide expert feedback on your pages, establish deadlines, and help you mine the gold from your manuscript. Sessions can be scheduled at any frequency you like for as long as you need.
