Brokenwing, in all honesty, I don't read the books I write for my authors once I'm done with them. The plots are awful, their must included scene's aren't my style. I do read them as I write them, I'm pleased with my treatment of their stories. And they are their stories, their plots, their ideas, i just give them form. I hope they are better than these people would have done them. I think it is obvious the two people I work for are limited as writers. They do have some good story ideas, but the story is molded by plotting to specific highs and lows and achieving those limits the creativity I would like to use. Sometimes I go off script and for the most part they keep it that way when I do.

The money takes the sting out of the thing. It still smells bad in my nostrils when I look at what I write for them. Have you ever driven by a feed lot after a rain, yeah, that's aroma I'm talking about.

With that said, the money is why I work for them. I don't know who wrote their stories before me, some of them were by them, I'm sure. I can't bring myself to read the older stuff of theirs.

I feel worse for my Pops. All this productivity in his past which he can't even reference. To be a part of so many movies, TV shows, and books, some of the movies blockbusters, some of the TV shows hits, many of the books best sellers, and be able to say nothing has to hurt.

I have income, that's all my ghostwriting is about. I have moderate income from my works that sell on Amazon or through SmashWords. Pop lived off his writing for years, but ghostwriting doesn't help if you stop doing it. He wants to write for a living again, I hope he can.

Okay, thanks for the kind comments about my work here. That helps my mood a great deal. Now, it's the first of the month, the last month of the worst year of this century. Let's all hope for a great new year for all of us. In the word's of Tiny Tim, "God bless us, every one!" and let's not forget his other words, Tip Toe Through the Tulips and Winchester Cathedral. Opps I guess that two different Tiny Tim's :)
