I have decided to stop tutoring and start ghostwriting. Tutoring is great if you can find it, but those offerings have slowed to a trickle for me. However, the area of ghostwriting may be my new calling. Today, in fact, I had my first official client. 

     Pierre called me hesitantly and said he was embarassed to even ask if I would consider doing the job. I told him I would be willing to write anything within reason. He let it out. A girl would not give him the time of day and he wanted to write a book about why she should give him a chance. It was a sweeping grand gesture and I was intrigued. There isn’t a girl who would not pause for that I reassured him. Girls love the big gesture.

     We met at Starbucks this morning and he was visibly nervous. I gave him samples of my work for reassurance. Casually, he flipped through it and launched into his love story. He bought her a dog and thought about her all the time. Some things were cliched, but he really needed someone to hear him. I took notes and listened.

     After twenty minutes I told him everyone has a story they want to tell, but may not have the patience to write. Some people have families to leave their mark on the world. I would love to leave a collection of stories and hope that writing will set you free. He signed my contract and I gave him a rough plan for his story. Let me know what you think. My phone has not stopped buzzing from his hourly texts. I reassure him that he is being heard and his words will find a home with me.

If you have a story that needs some support, let me know.
