Why Creativity Might Be Dying

Is creativity dying??
No. No, it isn’t. Although sometimes we see things that try to make us feel like it might be.

You know how you innocently go through your social newsfeeds, humming away happily, perhaps smiling at an image of someone’s newborn baby when suddenly, the hum disappears and out of nowhere someone’s post slaps you in the face?

That’s what happened to me with this image. Take a look at it and tell me what you see:

Why I Ghostwrite eBooks (And Why You Should, Too)

Why I Ghostwrite eBooks (And Why You Should, Too)

If you’re a freelance writer or creative of any kind, writing an eBook for yourself is a great way to not only make some extra cash, but to pit yourself as an expert, too.

So why do I ghostwrite eBooks for other creative entrepreneurs?

Because I have three books myself (one paperback, two eBooks), and I know the power they pack for my buyers and followers. I want to give aspiring authors the same benefits that I get from being an author:
– I’m pitted as an expert in my field.
– I make passive income with my books.
– I’m fulfilling a passion.

Not to mention that I love writing. It’s what I do! For me, writing is like taking the pieces of a puzzle and putting them together so they flow with ease. When authors and entrepreneurs reach out to me for help, it’s typically because:
– They can’t put their thoughts down on paper with clarity.
– They struggle with writing.
– They don’t have the time to write.

Here’s why I ghostwrite eBooks (and traditional books) for entrepreneurs and self-help gurus, and why you, as a freelance writer, should write them, too:

How to Write a Blog Post Quickly (A Magical Guide For Writers)

Do you write for a living?
Do you need to write more efficiently?

If you get paid to write blog posts, articles, or other content, time is money. Sometimes the blog post you’re getting paid to write requires a decent amount of research with cited sources. This kind of post can take a while to write, especially if the word count is 2,000 or 3,000 words.

So how do you deal with meeting a specific word count and still make the piece amazing without wasting hours of your life on research?

Here are some tips on how to write a blog post quickly without compromising your time or the quality or your writing reputation:

How to Write a Book in 90 Days or Less

It’s a question authors get all the time:
How long did it take to write your book?

For me, my first book took 5 months, and that doesn’t include getting it to the publisher and all the fun stuff that comes after I finished writing it.

But for digital communications strategist Jojanneke van den Bosch, it took 70 days to write, 90 days total to get it out there, including publishing. The book is called Live Your Talks and is available on Amazon. In the book, van den Bosch defines the difference between public speaking and performing at a TedX conference.

So how did she do it? 

Let’s find out How she did it, Why she did it, and What you need to do to produce the same results.
