"If I had more time, I would have written a shorter letter." ― Blaise Pascal
Writing is easy. Writing concisely is hard. Whether it's an op-ed, book excerpt, book, blog, article, newsletter, annual report or case study, the hardest part is cutting it down to only the right words.
In my 20 plus years as a writer and editor, including a decade writing and editing for Business NH Magazine, I brought many dozen business stories to life. As a ghostwriter and book editor, I now offer that same service to businesses and executives. My services include ghostwriting, writing and editing.
At the magazine, I learned that the best stories are based on passion. I ran on my lunch break. But I did not go alone. I took CEOs running and strapped a recorder to their arm. I then shared their personal and professional stories with our readers. Our shared love of running led to great conversations, and many great stories. Those runs also introduced me to people who later became book clients.
Stories can be narratives, or can be data driven. Either way, I make the same promise:
I will be concise.
I will be respectful.
I will be timely.
I will be creative.
I will be honest.
