5 Things Successful Writers Do Differently


#1 They Don’t Wait To Be Picked! 

Remember those days back in school when you weren’t the first person to be picked for a ball team? Do you really want to put yourself back into that situation? No! But, we do it all the time. As writers, don’t get into the trap of believing that you have to be “picked” by a traditional publisher to be a successful writer.

#2 Successful Writers Read

Study the most successful people in the world and you will find they are all committed to a lifelong study of business and personal development. Nowadays, you don’t even have to sit down to read a paperback book. I am constantly studying. While I’m washing dishes, I have my earbuds in listening to a seminar. While I’m driving I will be listening to an audiobook. You don’t have to wait until you have time to sit down with a cup of coffee to read and learn. The important thing to remember is to study. 

#3 They Control And the Let Go

I know that sounds odd, but here’s the deal. They control the only thing they really have the power to handle and that is their reactions and their mindset. They can’t control someone else’s behavior, but they control their own. They let go of everything else.

As a writer this an important trait to acquire. People are going to be rude to you when you release a book. Someone is going to leave an occasional nasty review on Amazon. While some people praise you others are operating out of narrow-minded jealousy. Let them go. Control your reactions to these people and let them go. 

#4 Forget Everyone Else and Focus on Themselves

Successful writers study the market trends, but they don’t fall into the trap of comparing their work to other writers. How can you compare apples and oranges? Every writer is working from their own ideals, mindsets, and beliefs. No two writers are alike, so don’t compare. Just focus on becoming a better writer today than you were yesterday. 

#5 They Don’t Let Fear Stop Them

Successful writers are just as afraid as you are. They have the same anxieties and shortcomings, the difference is they don’t let that stop them from sharing their work with the world. Be courageous and bold. Jump in and swim even when you are afraid and I’ll see you at the top!

Write a book for your business in 5 easy steps:

#1. Decide
Make the decision to follow through with the project

#2. Discover the truth
You can do this! Once you realize this you are good to go. You are more than capable of writing about a topic you love. Chances are, you already have. (Blogs, Videos, articles, brochures, website content, courses, etc.) You probably already have all the content for your book.

#3. Write, Type, or Jabber…daily!
Create a daily “writing” habit. I put writing in quotes because with all the tools available today, you don’t have to hand write a single sentence if you don’t want to. Most entrepreneurs actually dictate the entire book then send it off to an editor. The point is to work on the project daily.

#4. Outline
Outline the basic topics you want to cover and then write about each topic until you finish the list. Remember, you are just telling people about you and your business. Isn’t that what entrepreneurs love to do? Just chill out. Don’t think about a book like it’s a hard thing. You’re just chatting with clients.

#5. Set a deadline
Set a deadline to keep yourself accountable to finish the project.

Synova’s Sizzling Tips for Using Your Time Wisely

So many people complain about a lack of time, but I contend we all have the same 24 hours a day. It’s more about how we spend those hours.

There are 168 hrs/week. If you spend 40 at work, 56 hrs sleeping, and 7 hrs at the gym you still have 65 hrs left. What do you do with them? How can you make the most out of it?

#1 Say NO!

Don’t try to please everyone by taking on all their chores. Let them find someone else, or Heaven forbid let them do it themselves.

#2 Plan Ahead

Plan your day the night beforehand. Make a list of the top ten things you need to do and follow the list.

#3 Drop the time wasters

Don’t spend hours on Facebook scrolling through your newsfeed. Don’t sit and watch TV for three hours before going to bed. Find something more productive to do .

#4 Com University

How many hours a week do you spend commuting? Why not create your own Commute University. Studies show you can get an entire college education in your car on your way to work! Pop in a seminar, audiobook or podcast & learn on your way to work.

#5 Delegate

What are you currently doing that someone else could handle? Delegate the tasks that take up all your time so you can be free to work on your goals.

#1 Reason Why Your Business needs a book

We all know that entrepreneurs need to have a book to help promote their business, but why?Google this question and you will find ten thousand articles which tout the same five reasons. I contend the most important reason is not among them!A book gives your potential clients, and customers in inside look at your and your business like no other marketing can provide.The content housed in a 75,000-word book could fill up five years worth of media ads and still have more information.A book releases the pressure on the client and the business owner. Now the customer can learn all about your business without the pressure of endless sales calls, webinars, or costly ads.In the comfort of their homes, your ideal customer learns more about you than you can possibly put in any other form of infomercial.#authorcoaching #entrepreneursneedabook

5 Tips For “Finding Time” To Write

#1 Schedule time into your week for writing time. Plan in advance what part of the book you will work on. Planning ahead eliminates the time you waste trying to figure out a writing topic.

#2 Eliminate distractions. Cut down on the time spent on television and social media.

#3 Set writing goals. Then reward yourself when you reach them. How many kids love getting a shiny sticker on their school paper? Hint: We are all a bunch of big kids. 🙂

#4 Find an accountability partner. Together you will encourage each other to reach those writing goals.

#5 Create a daily writing habit. Even if it’s only 10 minutes, by establishing a habit you will find writing becomes easier

“But, I don’t have time to write”

Sure you do.

People spend an average of 2 hrs & 23 min on social media a day. That’s 35 days a year! That’s over a month.

The average American spends 4 & 1/2 hrs watching TV a day and that number is bumped up to 6 hrs if you include online videos.

The average commute is an hour.

Most people spend at least 5 hrs/week checking email. That equals 10.8 days a year.

How do you find time to write? You MAKE time to write.

Here are some tips to get you started.

* pre-plan your writing sessions
*dictate your story on your commute
*cut back on time-wasting activities
*break your book up into chunks and focus on one section at a time
*DON’T WAIT FOR IDEAL CONDITIONS!!!
*The magic word is “NO.” Tell some activities and people no.
*Reconnect with your why. WHY do you want to write the book in the first place?
*Keep a notebook with you at all times. This will give you a place to record all those creative ideas.

5 Tips for the Beginning Writer:

Do you want to write a book, but you don’t know where to start? Here are five basic tips to help you reach your goal of becoming a published author.

#1 Write EVERY Day.
Start a daily writing habit. Writing daily will naturally sharpen your writing skills, it expands your vocabulary and clears out writers’ block.

“A writer who waits for ideal conditions under which to work will die without putting a word on paper” – E.B. White, author of Charlotte’s Web

#2 Dive In – Be Scared Later
Don’t let fear keep you from reaching for your dreams. Set fear aside and be afraid later.

#3 KISS – Keep It Simple Sweetie
Don’t use 10 words if 5 will suffice.

#4 Show Don’t Tell
A book is a painting made with words.

#5 The Best Writing Serves The Reader; not the writer
Keep the reader in mind while you write. If you want to write cathartically then do so in a journal.

5 THINGS SUCCESSFUL WRITERS DO THAT YOU DON’T! *PART 4*

Could only five minor adjustments make or break your writing career? Synova thinks so. Here are five things you can implement today to help you succeed. This is part four of a five-part series.

#4 T.I.M.A.

Tony Robbins talks about taking massive action to achieve your goals, but I found there was one thing missing in his advice, so I added it.


Taking IMMEDIATE Massive Action:


The law of averages says you can depend on about 10%. If you have a newsletter that goes out to 1,000 people, you can usually depend on roughly 100 people to take action. That means they will OPEN the email. That doesn’t mean they will read your book add and buy the book. Take that 100 people and find 10% of those, and that’s the number of people you can depend on actually following through and taking action on the book ad in your email. That is only ten people!
I know it sounds depressing to have ten people out of a thousand who actually buy the book, but that’s the law of averages. Now that you know this, you can use this to your advantage.
What did you do to attract those original one thousand people? Now take that action and multiply it by ten, and you’ve already jumped your final outcome to 100. See how this works?

1,000 x 10% = 100 100 x 10% = 10


How do you achieve the results you want?

You must take massive action. For example, you currently reach out to ten people each week, then 10x that and reach out to 100. Whatever you are doing, find a way to take massive action; immediately.
I had a hard time achieving my goals because I had a habit of procrastination. I would take massive action eventually. It is so easy to get in the wrong mindset and put off the massive action.

Procrastination is poison to your dreams. You must break through and take IMMEDIATE action. Don’t put your dreams on hold. Take Massive Immediate Action Today!


This post is part of a blog series designed to help you with the business side of writing. If you missed Part 1 you can find it here:PART ONE. If you missed Part 2 you can find it here: PART TWO. If you missed Part 3, you can find it here: PART THREE.

Look for PART 5 next week. Also, keep your eye out for Synova’s new book Titled Ten Things Successful Writers Do That You Don’t…coming soon!
