Historically, most people don’t appreciate literature as much as they appreciate the name of one or another written work. And, unfortunately, this has reached our time as well, now if people do read books, they are rather picky about the literature they read. And it’s not even a person’s love for the author’s style of writing or anything, but simply because that person is still remembered.
Thinking back to the fact that people create new techniques for themselves to simplify life, which in turn intersects with such a phenomenon as laziness, it would be hard to think that there are writers who may not write works, yet they are credited with a large amount of literature.
Such a phenomenon, if you can call it that, is called Ghostwriting. The very essence of this scheme has spread quite strongly and quickly to freelance exchanges, where writers can order freelancers to write a book, and then give it away under their name. Yes, freelancers accept such orders and get a decent book for it, so no one is offended.
It would seem that what is it for, but on the other hand, it is useful for lazy writers (but that does not mean that all people are like that, there are circumstances where one has a contract with an editorial office that requires too many texts for their profit, which for one person is unbearable torture and an unrealistic task) to maintain their reputation, and simultaneously useful for the freelance writer, whose work is not appreciated by people because of its unknowns. In this way, as has been said, the writer remains popular, and the real writer can hear real criticism of the work, which will not be judged by his personality, which may contribute to the future release of better works.
The job of the “ghost-writer” is also to be able to ask questions that allow you to “catch” the story, but without questioning it. For most such writers, it is important to understand and acknowledge that they are writing someone else’s book.
