Have you ever heard of the Sweet Valley High series, by Francine Pascal? It was always common knowledge that she used a team of ghostwriters, but it turns out that she did not write a single one of those books nor any of the many spin-offs. Not one. Yet her name is on every single cover. She just came up with the basic plot outlines and got royalties. Best writing gig EVER.

That is indeed a great writing gig. I would have little problem with being the idea guy.

Oh, I have ideas...especially when it comes to giant, alien robots. Although, I'm not sure I could give up the control in the end...

It kind of reminds me of Mr. Brainwash from Exit through the Giftshop...
He was crazy, but profitably so.
