The Unseen Ghostwriter

Write a story from the perspective of a ghostwriter for a famous opinion column, who witnesses the public’s reaction to their anonymous contributions.

This prompt explores the anonymity of the ghostwriter, the appreciation or criticism for the publicly-acclaimed columnist, and the curious scenario wherein the ghostwriter comes across the interpretation and reception of their penned ideas without the name tag. How does the ghostwriter feel about this anonymity and what challenges does it bring? Explore loneliness, modesty, pride, and intellectual honesty in this unique situation.
