The Haters Are Wrong About You!


How many times have you been told that you’re a failure, and you’ll never amount to anything? How many times have you been told you will never be a successful author? How many negative things have you told yourself? Well, stop believing it!

Some of the greatest, most influential writers of all time have suffered rejection. Here are a few examples for you to look at when you get discouraged about your writing.

Animal Farm, by George Orwell, received this scathing review from a publisher. “It is impossible to sell animal stories in the U.S.A.” This book went on to be named one of the 100 best English-language novels by Time Magazine. It was number 31 on the Modern Library list of the Best 20th Century Novels. It won a Retrospective Hugo Award and is included as one of the Great Books of the Western World.

The Diary of Anne Frank, by Anne Frank, was given this horrible review. “The girl doesn’t, it seems to me, have a special perception or feeling which would lift that book above the curiosity level.” Frank could have taken that review personally, but she pressed on until she found a publication that would publish her award-winning book. 

If you have found yourself dealing with critics in any area of your life, then take heart. Usually, critics only attack those with which they can’t compete. You can write your book and be a great success if you choose to. It’s up to you. You can choose to become the next author millionaire, or you can let the comments of the narrow-minded critics stop you from achieving your dreams. 

“You can have excuses or results, not both” – Arnold Schwarzenegger. 

What will you choose? Excuses? Results?

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 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.
