Ghostwriting is defined as the act of writing books or other pieces in which another “author” receives full credit. Often, the official author, a celebrity, politician, or another public figure can sell books under his own name, while not necessarily being the one who wrotethese books. This person hires a ghost as a freelance writer to produce copywriter work for a fee.

Ghostwriting presents the ideas of an author in the words of a stand-in writer. The author has something to share, but may lack the time, inclination or skill to attempt the writing task. A ghostwriter helps bring out what the author wishes to communicate. Remaining outside of the content, a skilled ghostwriter presents the viewpoint of the author, while tuning the writing style to reflect the personality and ideas of the author.

This may sound odd, but it’s a common practice. When someone wants to create a new copy of a website, a ghostwriter may be hired to rewrite it, and there are many similar jobs such as writing ad or business copy, or supplying new or rewritten materials for personal or professional use. A ghost is hired primarily as a professional freelance writer in order to produce high quality writing copy and make the writing read professionally. A paid professional freelance writer is often the only one who can create sparkling, well-written website content or other paid professional writing copy.

Believe it or not, when Barack Obama steps up on that podium to make a speech, most of his words are likely to have been written by someone else. He has a speechwriter or even a team of speechwriters. He fully takes credits for the words being spoken, as if they were his own, but they were effectively ghostwritten. The things people like Jay Leno and Stephen Colbert say on their TV shows are pretty much the same. Busy executives and politicians do not always have the time to write all the messages they must deliver on a daily basis.

Some consider ghostwriting to be very similar to plagiarism. Many people who use ghostwritten materials do pass off someone else’s concepts and ideas as their own. They do so by either claiming the authorship or by giving the impression that the words and ideas are their own. Others believe that if you’re fully aware that you’ll receive no credit for your thoughts, ideas, and penmanship and still agree to sell those to someone who will pass off the work as their own, there isn’t any ethical dilemma here. Some people say that since ghostwriting is so widely accepted throughout the world and everyone does it, it’s okay. Others object to this, saying that just because Fred jumped off the bridge, it doesn’t make it right for you to take a flying leap too. Another viewpoint says that being hired to write a novel for someone who provides all conceptual content, ideas, and research but doesn’t have the skills to write on his or her own is quite fine. Still, there are people who argue that some form of credit for collaborating on the project is a must. And what is your point of view? How ethical do you think ghostwriting is?
