It's been real
Hey everybody, just wanted to say goodbye with one last blog. All the smiles, the comments, the YouTube videos, I'll never forget them. In closing, I wanted to ask you all, why did you pick your blog name?
"He's a ghost, and he writes to us," or "How I picked my blog name"
For me, "ghostwriter" was inspired by my roommate's and my love for early 90s board games. Sitting on the shelf near my computer along with "The Babysitters Club Game" and "Tamagotchi: The Game" (yes, "Tamagotchi" exists as a board game), is the "Ghostwriter Mystery Game". For those of you who don't know, "Ghostwriter" was an awesome PBS show in the early - mid 90s. This will explain everything. Anyway, I really liked this name because you get the 90s TV show reference and the reference to questions about authorship posed by the actual practice of ghostwriting.
Anyway, I hope some of you will post how you got your names. Have a fantastic break!
