I want to pursue a ghostwriting project for a fictional novel, but first need to tighten up my existing outline.
I would like to partner with smart thinkers/writers to take this rough draft outline and transform it into something more comprehensive to hand off to a ghostwriter.
Themes for the novel: love, depression, desperation, infidelity, mental illness, alternate realities, point of view, projection, mystery, violence
**I promise these will seem less scatter-shot after I explain everything**
Along with these themes, I have characters, basic flow, and an ending mapped out. I view this as extremely collaborative, so I would want to walk you through all of the existing ideas prior to you jumping in.
- Any over-arching plot enhancements
- Character profiles: Name, age, looks, personality, motivations, background, etc
- Detailed chapter and scene breakdown: For each chapter we will want a comprehensive scene-by-scene breakdown with estimated word counts. Basically there needs to be a thorough roadmap that the ghostwriter can follow for each chapter. This is an outline for a novel so please keep in mind, outline should be capable of a 250-400 page story.
Essentially, we map out the novel together, to then be handed off to the ghostwriter for final production.
Please note that when finished with the outlines, all the work will be copyrighted to me. I will initially hire suitable candidates for the outline work, however, if this job goes well, there will be an opportunity to work on ghostwriting the novel.
