Ghostwriting jobs are actually very common online. If you are a writer, looking for stay at home mom income, consider taking on ghostwriting projects. They can be fun and lucrative.

What is a Ghostwriter?

Now before you get the idea of a ghostly creature plinking away at the keys of a laptop while rattling chains, let's just figure out exactly what a ghostwriter is. A ghostwriter is someone hired to write for someone else. Ghostwriting jobs must be worded as if the client wrote them, and the writer doesn't take credit for doing the job.

They relinquish all copyright; their name does not appear on the work, nor can they claim it as their own. Only the client is allowed to publish the manuscript. How's that for interesting stay at home mom jobs?

Most celebrities hire a ghostwriter to tell their story, but it isn't just the rich and famous that provides ghostwriting projects. Anyone can! Business men and women, doctors, lawyers, teachers, even some stay at home moms-these are all busy people who don't have time or don't want to fuss with the mechanics of writing and are willing to pay someone else to do the job.

It isn't always novels that are ghost written either. Articles, webpages, and blogs are often written by a ghostwriter. Makes you wonder about this page, doesn't it? Hmmm...

Of course, that brings up the lucrative aspect of being a ghostwriter that could be very helpful to a stay at home mom with extra time on her hands. Ghostwriting projects don't come free of charge. A contract is created between the client and the writer where all the terms are laid out.

It may seem that as a ghostwriter you are giving up your creative ideas, but in reality, you're getting paid for them! Becoming a ghostwriter is a good way to make money at writing, a claim that lots of authors can't say they are doing.

How much money you make depends entirely on what type of ghostwriting projects you agree to take on. Ghost writing a novel can pay thousands of dollars depending on the project and the time it will take to write the manuscript.

Blogs and articles can be paid by the hour, the word count, or by the number of them you agree to do.


The internet offers lots of opportunities to find ghostwriting projects. Many websites are set up to act as the broker between you and the potential client. One popular place for ghostwriting jobs is Elance. Elance creates the link between the client looking to hire and the writer looking to work.

Both people set up a profile on the website by filling out basic information. If you are the writer, you create a simple, yet creative blurb about your abilities that will help market you to potential clients.

There are also skills test that a writer can take to add onto their profile making them more appealing. The clients post ghostwriting jobs, and the writer goes through them, looking for ones that fit their abilities. When the writer locates one that's a good match, they bid on the project.

A bid on Elance means you send a message through the website to the client explaining what you can do and how much you charge. If this is acceptable, they will message you back saying you're hired.

When you agree to take the job, Elance sends a contract to be accepted or declined. Once you accept the job, it begins immediately and must be completed by a prearranged deadline.

Elance offers all kinds of ghostwriting jobs. On any given day you can find clients needing blogs or articles on everything from how to teach a Zumba class to the importance of Alfred Hitchcock in film.

There are creative writing projects listed, too, and even ghostwriting projects involving children's books. All it takes is a little time and the willingness to write for someone else.

Elance isn't the only website that offers ghostwriting projects, but it is one of the most well-known. If you are curious about other online opportunities for ghostwriting jobs, may be of interest to you. Their set up and payment methods are very similar to Elance.

Another resource for stay at home moms is the eBook 25 Ways to Write for Money. This handy resource written by David Goldsmith gives you the low down on some of the best ways to break into the business of writing and profit from it.

What is it really like to be a ghost writer? Here, one ghostwriter shares her story:

Message from a Ghost...Writer

I'm a fiction writer with a full time job in education. Like many people, writing is my passion, but I never thought it could be something that really provided much extra income. However, after reading an article about the benefits of being a ghostwriter, I was hooked on the idea.

Since taking on ghostwriting jobs, I've found a way to pay for the little "extras" my family struggled to afford sometimes. The income I make also goes towards funding my fiction writing, as well as, conferences and workshops.

Ghostwriting could be an excellent way to bring in supplemental income if you are a stay at home mom with extra time on your hands. With a little patience, time management, and good writing skills, you'll be a ghost in no time - ghostwriter, that is!
