Question
I have been sick many years. I want to write a book for my son, who is 16. It is also a spiritual journey others might find uplifting. I just cannot stay focused to write or type on the keyboard. So how do I get this on paper? Besides my lupus flares up often and sometimes I cannot lift my head off the pillow for a week or two. I could still give my account to somebody, but I could not see enough to try to pen anything when things are bad.I am not rich. Are there people who do this for you? I know there is a fee. I live in Virginia.
Thank you for you assistance.

Answer
Hi Joanne,

You may be able to hire someone fairly cheap on the Internet.
Craigslist.org is a popular way for writers who need help to post job listings. When you get to the website, you click on the city closest to you. Then you have agree to certain conditions. Then you click the category you want which would be writing/editing. Then the place to fill out your information comes up. This is free. There are writers who are willing to work for low prices and the experience. Good luck!
