Musing Mondays is a weekly meme that asks you to choose one of the following prompts to answer:

I’m currently reading…
Up next I think I’ll read…
I bought the following book(s) in the past week…
I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…
I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…
I can’t wait to get a copy of…
I wish I could read ___, but…
I blogged about ____ this past week…

Okay one random little bit of shop keeping as it were before I jump into this weeks Muse. I have noticed since the take over that while Teaser Tuesday still seems to be doing well and healthy, Musing Monday seems to be getting less and less participation. Now I do not want to seem like I am whining I promise I am not, but I have to ask is there something I could do better? Are the questions to boring or different? Or perhaps it is time to retire this weekly meme? I won’t be offended whatever the answers might be. I do just honestly want to make sure everyone is enjoying the memes. Alright with that out of the way on we go.

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: What do you think of ghostwriters??

As someone who does a fair amount of ghost writing myself for work I have long wondered what other’s think of them. For my part I try and stick with non fiction work and blog posts, things like that. I have been asked on ocassion to do fiction but most of the time I turn it down because I feel if I am going to write a work of fiction it will be my own. With that being said I know that there are some huge names out there that use ghostwriters. This is going to sound hypocritical because I do writing work but often times I don’t like it. Maybe it is because I do the work that I can generally tell when an author has used a ghostwriter? We all have our own style and even when a ghostwriter tries to copy as close to the ordinal as possible it still to me feels different. This can often ends up with books in the same series feeling like they do not belong together. I won’t automatically stop reading an author if they use a ghostwriter I try to judge books on their content more then anything. What about you?

    I almost didn’t do this one because my opinion on ghostwriting is so half-formed lol

    Do you have any posts about how you wound up doing that sort of work? I’d love to know.
