    You have a choice ...

    Write as a ghostwriter about a celebrity and make a million dollars ... but the contract stipulates you can never admit to being the writer or you have to pay it all back

    or ...

    Write as yourself about a famous person and become famous yourself, but all of the money must go to charity to get the story

    Which do you chose?

    Quietly rich or famously poor?

      famously poor. it is very hard to get published these days. one smashing success would bring about other literary opportunities, hence millions of dollars, so in the end you would be famous AND rich smile

      I choose famously poor. I want ppl to know who I am but I would gladly give the money to charity...becausel ike someone else said if this gets me noticed then others will want my work and then I will collect money from those projects.

    I'd probably take the million(s) of dollars, hopefully invest some of it wisely to earn more, let some of it gain interest, and give what I wanted to charity on my own terms.

    Then I could also have the freedom and time to write as myself, whether I would become successful or not.  I don't care about fame at all.  In fact, I wouldn't want it.

    Famously poor.  Fame alone will somehow generate you some income.  A website under your name will make you bank among other things.  Good things come to those that give, I guess.

    Quietly rich cause I'm not into becoming famous. I don't think I'd like all the attention.

    I had to scroll down quickly so I would not be influenced by the answers, LOL, but I made this question seem very real to me, took a deep breath, and decided "quietly rich", would work for me. I could do charity on my own. smile

    can I pick neither? cuz I dont want to write about a celebrity.
    I would pick, being the editor for said writer, with a normal paycheck and no recogniiton. I like being helpful more then money or a spotlight. but the writer has to do spell check on their own..  maybe I could just go get coffee for everyone? smile
