10 Reasons


1. We bridge the gap between an idea and an audience by co-operating in a bespoke way with key departments in a media supply chain. We are not just a service to provide a client with a manuscript. Our intention is to achieve the maximum benefit for the most people through broad, focused, and creative thinking.

2. The publishing world is changing. A golden age for writers has now arrived where author services are impacting systems of distribution. Old structures are re-forming, and new ones have arrived. The London Ghostwriting Company has moved into this future as we bring story ideas forward in new ways. We move with the times and with our clients.

3. Writing changes the world. Bringing written words forth into the material world creates reverberations – so we have both a responsibility for and a proclivity toward high level thinking. Finding the true theme to any story is therefore central to our work, and in turn the world. A good book can change the world for the better. A bad one can cause irreparable damage.

4. As Schopenhauer taught us, art and philosophy are activities (Rajas) to transcend our conflict (Tamas). Thus, craft provides cohesion to the psyche or—order from chaos, Yang from Yin or balance (Sattva). This tuning process grounds a person physically and psychically. To have made something useful in a material form is therefore imperative to one’s survival as well as one’s understanding that on some level everything is story – because all is pattern forming, all is concept: science, evolution, the concept of countries, worlds, Gods, a universe. All is patterns of conception based on patterns of pronounced causation. All is story.

5. The creative process is magical but natural and although abstract, neither supernatural nor esoteric and due to the way the intellect interprets happenings – myths form as narrative, character, and theme. A good storyteller will understand this. To observe this happening is quite an awakening and prompts a journey that develops character in the same way that a mountain climber becomes stronger as he steps. The journey becomes harder, but he becomes more resilient, conditioned, humble, wise, and awake.

6. Characters, worlds, different realms: these patterns are all outlets for us to channel contained energy. In this sense we are alchemists for all energy does is change form. JK Rowling channelled the grief she faced after her mother died to manifest Harry. This is something we can do with emotions: we can put them to use, we can engage in their transformation towards creative ends.

7. All people are creative, but many struggle to find an outlet for their projects. Unfulfilled, we ruminate, go mad, or simply go to waste. That’s unnecessary. It’s not about dreaming, it is about animating the dream (Rajas). By seeing this through, you will have left footprints for others to follow. These are signs of your significance, your signature. Create, therefore, or become a monster, for “A non-writing writer is a monster courting insanity,” said Kafka.

8. Locked into the role of an intellectual critic or the professional bystander, a person becomes decadent (Tamas). The trap of becoming an expert student can be avoided by creating and learning in balance. The creative process is where it’s at; the movement of this creative energy is, as Dylan Thomas said, “The force that through the green fuse drives the flower.” We understand this and intend to lead you forward, through it all, and on to new levels of self-understanding, perception and experience.

9. To leave behind a body of work that you saw an end to is a worthy life to have led and is worth walking the long road for. LGC understand this and will support you in the long hard climb.

10. Co-operation with others as we move toward common goals is how we form meaningful relationships. To work with one another in the pursuit of something worthwhile is to experience relationships in the profound way that people yearn for. To do this creatively is memorable. In fact, there is nothing else quite so meaningful.
