You have a great story but you don’t feel you have the skills to bring the story to the page? One answer is to employ a ghost writer, someone you work closely with, who understands you and can tell your story.
However, employing a professional writer to tell your story is expensive – it takes many hours for them to talk to you and then write your story – and there is never any guarantee of publication with any project.
You can contact ghostwriters to compare quotes – there is a list here on Writing.ie. In all cases we suggest getting as much of your story written as you can as this will save you time and money if you do employ someone, or form the basis of a first draft if you feel you want to take it forward yourself. You may feel rather than a ghostwriter that a mentor can help you get your story written.
We can highly recommend The Accidental Memoir for anyone tackling their story for the first time.
The Accidental Memoir truly is for all: writers and non-writers, teachers and students, the perfect book for anyone seeking inspiration or imaginative ways to explore their own life story.
The story of you.
The Accidental Memoir takes you on a journey of self-discovery, from the origins of your family name and earliest memories, to what you’d invent and how you’d change the world. This beautifully illustrated book is filled with inventive and accessible writing prompts, as well as tips for anyone wanting to document their lives and explore their creativity.
Want to flex your writing muscles, exorcise your demons, relive moments of magic, make sense of life, have fun and leave a lasting legacy? The Accidental Memoir will show you how.
This innovative concept was developed as an Arts Council project to help people tap into their own lives. Working with diverse groups from refugees to the elderly and prisoners, it has been a resounding success in unearthing stories that otherwise may never have been told.
