Writing a Novel/memoir

Closed

Looking for a creative ghost writer with rigorous work with language, with talent and imagination to be able to grasp my mind to help me write a historical novel. The idea is complete, scattered ideas and events are written, but the pages are full of repetition and incomplete, they need quality writing, editing, improved readability, interest captured to take it to manuscript level.

i wrote the basis for the original manuscript; a storytelling with a shared compassion for my heritage, to not only deliver a message of empathy for a cause, but also address the broader human quest for dignity, humanity, and identity. I will work closely with the writer in the development of characters and stories that demonstrate my vision, telling about the life of a family to sort out identity issues and perpetual grief!

CONDITIONS: No copyrighted material or material written by others will be accepted. Writer must provide high quality work, free of errors and copyscape checked.

By accepting, you agree to a work-for-hire situation and we will retain full rights and ownership of the work. The material may be used or altered in any manner without your name appearing anywhere. You have no rights to republish or distribute the material in any form.

REQUIREMENTS: The work includes: Re-write, modify, develop, and build on the existing text and professionally write the manuscript up to 200 pages, MS-Word font size 12, Single spaced, 1” margin all sides. Work progress reports need to be delivered 5 days after contract is granted to ensure the content is accurate. Payment in full after copyright, approval for all work and a signed agreement/release is received.

The deadline will be determined by the pace of the output, however it is understood that the first draft must be delivered in as short a period of time as possible. As of this writing, the material written in its structural form with at least 300 pages, of a life long journey.

CONTENTS: This is a memoir-like and would be able to capture my voice, draw stories out of my scattered writings and detailed memory I wrote and be able to do a proper job in writing a well structured book about the life of my and parents’ families, about a land that I am originally from but had to settle somewhere else in the world struggling for self-identification, caused by several layers of displacement from family, land and home.

The story starts in a village in the early 1900’s talking about my grandfather who wrote notes and depicted his life and the events of his surroundings through his writing.

The book will be written in a fictional format and will be styled as a historical romance to protect the privacy of family members. The book content is driven from me and my family stories in three countries.

The characters will be similar in nature however embellished and given more creative license to make the book successful in the commercial market. The writing will aim the light on a village under occupation - an archeological site, in which there is a cave curved in the mountain, and other monuments - in purpose of telling facts about culture, geography, whither, heritage, and the role they had in occupation resistance.

My grandfather wrote about the village at the end of the Ottoman Empire until he died on. Despite his poverty, he was a sophisticated intellectual and a committed patriot from an early age. He depicted his life and the events of his surroundings through his writings.

Myself, the granddaughter, take center stage as a symbol of hope and the tenacious will of survival, creativity and love; my struggle for self-identification, caused by several layers of displacement from family, land and home, is constantly accompanied by detailed memory, which ultimately leads me to destination with his mother and four brothers.

The story truly begins in Canada, recalling and attracting they eyes to the history of my family; attracting the eye to their stories and the lives of refugees.
