I wrote a short ebook titled 10 Reasons to Be a Ghost, and 10 Tips on How to Do It. It was fun to write and it’s easy to read. Here is one of my favorite reasons I’m a happy ghost – it’s reason #6 in the book.
Reason #6: You will become very good at listening.
Ask any psychologist – the best way to develop a relationship with someone is to learn how to really listen. Listen to not only what is said, but how it’s said, why it’s said, and even what is not said. Listen to the spaces and the pauses and the silences between you. Listen for the hidden emotions and the secrets, and learn how to ask the questions that will release those secrets. For a ghostwriter, knowing how to really listen is a necessary skill, and the more you ghostwrite, the better your listening skills will become.
This will not only help your ghostwriting ability, but you might find that your own personal relationships improve mightily.
For the other 9 reasons to be a ghostwriter and the 10 helpful tips on how to become a good one, you can buy this book on Smashwords for 99¢, or it’s included (along with other ebooks, articles and exercises) when you take my online class “Learn to Ghost.”
