I've been given a new opportunity--to ghostwrite a story for a missions book. I'm absolutely thrilled but of course challenged by the sheer thought of doing it. But what is more exciting is I also get the opportunity to share and talk with a missionary on the field and learn more about their life and how God has blessed them in their work.
A year ago, if someone had asked me to do this--I would have turned down the request in a a heartbeat. As a writer, I struggle to write my own thoughts--even though I know the story inside and out. Ghostwriting for someone else opens up new fears. Will I create their voice accurately? Will I portray what they want to get across? Will the finished story be everything they hoped it would be?
I'm praying that the missionary I have will already be an exceptional writer and all I have to do is a few edits! Now wouldn't that be awesome?
