This is Why You're Not Earning Enough Money From Writing

Do you ever sit and wonder why you're not earning as much money from your writing as you want to?

I know I do.

And the thing that I've realised is that when I'm not earning as much money as I want to from my writing, it's because I'm not writing enough.

Whenever I look back over times when I was making sales and earning more money from my books, websites and blog, it was always when I was sitting down and writing every day.

And the times when I wasn't earning enough money, were the times when I wasn't writing as much so I had time to sit and ponder my lack of income.

This is also true of any writer that you look at.

All the successful writers are those that write a lot, or write regularly every day no matter what.

The problem is that it's too easy to let other things get in the way of our writing.

Other people think that becasue I don't go out to work every day means I'm not busy. But that is far from the truth.

I'm either writing or getting on with other things I have to do. Even if I'm sat watching a movie and doing some sewing, I'm busy. (Why don't people get that?)

But it seems that people think that if I'm sitting down I'm not busy.

Sometimes I might even be sitting out in the garden having a cup of tea and thinking about my next writing project. I may not look busy but if they could look inside my brain they'd be amazed by all the activity in there.

So if you're not earning enough money from your writing, look at it this way...

It's possible to write a book in a week. My own 7 Day Ebook Writing and Publishing System proves this (

So if you followed a system such as this you could write and publish an ebook every week.

This means you could write and publish 50 ebooks a year, if you're really disciplined.

My friend and co-author Yuwanda Black did it.

And how much would that improve your writing income?

Now you may not want to write 50 ebooks a year. But it does demonstrate how more writing means more writing income.

It simply comes down to a mathematical equation. Writing = Money.

Well, all right, it's not as simple as that (except that it is).

But if you want to increase your writing income, you first need to increase your writing output.

So stop reading this and get to work.

The Simple Way to Write More That I Learned From a Top Copywriter

Years ago I downloaded an audio interview with top copywriter, Bob Bly.

If you haven't heard of him before, he is one of the highest-paid copywriters in the industry and has worked freelance for many years.

He works out of his rented office where he writes every day.

In the interview ( Bob talked about one of the problems with being a busy writer, is getting bored with what he's writing.

This is a problem for many writers. Including me. If I get bored with what I'm writing, then I quickly lose interest in it.

And when I listened to the Bobl Bly interview he talked about how he has the same problem and how he handles it.

He said that he always makes sure he has several different projects he's working on at the same time, so if that if he gets bored with one, he puts it away and starts on another one.

He said he works as a copywriter full time and he needs to keep working every day if he wants to earn money so he can't afford to get bored. But as long as he has different things to work on, he can simply switch from one to another.

And I found this information to be gold, so I do the same.

If I'm tired of writing blog posts, or I'm simply not in the mood, I write a marketing article instead or write a promotion for an affiliate product or work on my book.

Every week, I start by listing the writing I have to do and it's always a list of different things. So if I get bored with one, I just work on another. And if I get tired of writing, I'll start researching for another project or I'll outline my next book, or look through my ideas book or proof-read something I've already written.

I find that as long as I have something to switch to, I can keep working, and then get back to what I was stuck on the next day or whenever I'm ready.

I just have to keep going and that helps me to write more instead of stopping.

And more writing always equals more money.

The 'Secret' To Writing and Earning More Every Day

I love to read about how other writers work, but only those who are good at what they do and have earned millions.

One of these is the late, great copywriter, Eugene Schwartz.

He is the author of the well-known, yet hard to get hold of, copywriting classic called Breakthrough Advertising. I'm one of the fortunate people who have a copy of this amazing book. It's currently selling on Amazon for $400 and up to $2,000.

Eugene Schwartz is famous not for just doing great work and earning millions of dollars, but also for teaching others how he did it.

One of the 'secrets' he taught was using a timer whenever he was working.

He always set it to 33.33 minutes.

Why he used this exact amount of time of 33 minutes and 33 seconds, he never said, but he does attribute it to making him a millionaire several times over.

The way he did it was that he would start his timer and then start working.

When the timer sounded, he would stop work for exactly 5 mintues. It didn't matter what he was working on, even if he was halfway through writing a sentence, when the timer sounded, he would stop.

Not only that, but the 5 minutes had to be spent away from his desk. He would make a cup of tea, or pat his dog or walk around. But he would be physical for 5 minutes.

He would then return to his desk, set his timer for another 33.33 minutes and get straight to work.

He would do this 6 or sometimes 7 times and then stop working for the day.

So he was, in fact, only working 3 to 4 hours a day.

But he did say it was intensely focused work and he already knew what he'd be working on before he sat down. He also worked 7 days a week.

And this is what he said helped to keep him at his desk working and earning him millions of dollars.

It's also helped his followers, many of whom work the same way.

And on days when I use it, it works for me too.

It's amazing how well it helps with focus and gives you no time for writer's block or other time-wasting activities.

My aim is to get into a habit of working this way every day.

The One Basic Secret For Earning Money From Writing

I use Grammarly when I write on my computer.

It's a free app and is really useful for picking up on spelling and grammatical errors.

Sadly though, it doesn't work with Pages for Mac (although it does work on Microsoft Word) which is what I use for doing nearly all my writing, so it never counts my book manuscript word count.

But it does work for my blog, my emails and for plain text documents I write using programs such as Text Edit.

Every week it also emails me my stats and tells me how I'm doing and compares it to other Grammarly users.

This past week I've hardly written at all because it was my father's funeral yesterday and he is the second family member to pass away this year. So I was a bit off my writing game.

This morning I received an email from Grammarly telling me that I'd only written 2,283 words this past week, which is not much at all.

But...and this is the surprising thing, it said that I was 80% more productive than other Grammarly users.


Wow! If I wrote so little every week I'd be out of business.

Yet I still out-wrote 80% of other users.

But why am I telling you this?

Because it's proof that being a successful writer means actually sitting down and writing.

There is no perceived "secret" to earning money from writing. It's simply doing the writing.

You have to sit down and do it every day.

And write at least 10 times more than 2,283 words every week.

This is why I earn money from my writing, and others don't.

It's a 'secret' called writing.

Have you tried it lately?

Grammarly. The free writing app.

How to be a Writing Villain

I've recently read the book "Persuasion Secrets of the World's Most Charismatic & Influential Villains" several times. It's written by copywriter and email specialist, Ben Settle.

It's essentially written for men, but the advice is priceless for writers.

Basically, it tells you to have a mission (your writing) and to always put your mission first, no matter what.

The advice it gives is:

Don't be needy and at everyone's beck and call and don't always be available.

Be a dictator about your mission and make others back off if they try to persuade you to drop it.

Always have money so you're not financially dependant on anyone or any job (and it tells you how to do this, even if you're broke).

This little book is not about writing per se but it IS really useful about how to put your writing (mission) at the top of your agenda AND how to keep it there.

It's a short book and I've read it over several times, and even though it gets straight to the point on every issue about being a "villain" and putting your mission first, I keep finding more pieces of gold every time I read it.

Yes, It is Your Fault

"It doesn't' matter what others are doing. It matters what you are doing." 
~ Buddhist Quote

Although I have a Facebook account, I have never liked Facebook or the whole social media scene because I find that people say really terrible things when they're hiding behind their keyboards.

I only use FB for marketing but I have tried joining a few groups but every one I join turns out to be nothing like what it's supposed to be and there is always a ton of bitching and arguing going on.

So over time, I've dropped out of them all. But a few weeks ago I came across a group all about clean food and eating a plant-based diet, which is something I'm very interested in and it advertised itself as being all about empowering yourself and feeling good by eating clean food.

So I joined.

And guess what?

It wasn't about that at all. It seemed to be about people saying that they wanted to eat well, but then complaining about all the junk food they ate, while others would add comments that basically said, "There, there, it's not your fault." All of them blamed their bad eating habits on having "stressful" days.

Then one person said we cannot control what happens to us, but we are responsible for our response to what happens. Sage words. Or so I thought.

But then she went on to say that after she'd recently had a "stressful" day ( I use quotes because it sounded like just a normal day to me) she sat on her kitchen floor, crying while eating a whole packet of Oreo cookies (apparently she was crying because she didn't want to eat the cookies), but it wasn't her fault that she ate all the cookies because all the "stress" she'd suffered forced her to eat them.

So, stupidly, I responded by saying, "But you said that we are all responsible for how we respond to situations so doesn't that mean that it IS your fault that you ate them?"

And then I found out how painful lynching must be because I got so many hate comments all telling me how wrong I was and that they all weren't responsible for all their binge eating because it was out of their control.

What I found surprising (or not) was that they seemed to be of the collective opinion, that because they were all doing the same bad behaviour, it somehow made it not wrong to do. It was as though they thought that if others were doing it too, then it was justified.

And you might be wondering by now, what this all has to do with writing?

Well, I see this same attitude when it comes to negative behaviours about writing, like blaming procrastination or writer's block. It seems people go to forums and do Google searches and find a ton of information about how others waste time procrastinating or saying that they can't write because they have writer's block.

And that's enough to justify their own lack of writing. "I'm not the only one who can't write because I've got writer's block, so it's normal to not write at all. It's not me. Blame writer's block. We all have it. So it's not my fault. Not writing is clearly out of my control."

Well, I'm here to tell you that it is your fault. It doesn't matter what others are or aren't doing.

If you're not getting your writing done, it is completely your fault.

Can you imagine trying this same excuse in a courtroom? 

The prosecution barrister would say, "So why did you rob the bank?" And you say, "Well I looked online and others were doing it too, so it's not my fault!" And the barrister responds with, "Oh, I had no idea others were robbing banks too. Your Honour, we can't possibly jail this person for robbery if others are doing the same thing. Clearly, it's not their fault. They cannot be held responsible for their actions."

It wouldn't work in court, or anywhere else.

We are all responsible for our actions (or inactions).

No matter how you feel, you always have a choice.

Blaming something else (writer's block, procrastination) is just weakness and laziness.

And weakness and laziness are not virtues.

 But they are things that are within our control.

Writers write.

Whiners whine.

I'm not saying it's easy to write when you don't feel like it.

But you are a writer. 

So if you're not writing every day, it's your fault.

Take back control.

We'd All Make Changes If We Could

Ask any top writer, and they'll tell you that there are things they'd change in their block buster novels if they could.

And it's the same for any writer, including you.

The more you go over your work, the more you see things that you want to change.

This is why I say that the perfect piece of writing doesn't exist.

Because there's no such thing as perfect.

Perfect is subjective, meaning it's influenced by personal tastes, feelings or opinions .

That's why it's impossible to please all of the people all of the time.

And why you should never try to.

And when you're editing your work, there is a time to say good enough is good enough, otherwise you'll go on making changes forever.

I was listening to an audio recording a few days ago of email specialist and top copywriter, Ben Settle, analysing some of his old sales pages that he'd writtten for other people. He was going through them and saying why he included things and how it helped to make sales.

But all the way through the kept saying things like "I could have written that better."

Yet these sales pages had generated tens of millions of dollars in sales. And the clients he'd written them for had been running them for years and earning even more millions from them.

Yet Ben was looking at them and talking about what he'd change about them if he could.

So you see?

We always want to change what we've written.

It never seems good enough.

So once you've written something, especially something as big as an ebook, don't over edit it.

You'll never feel 100% satisfied. But if you feel at least 80% happy with it, then it's probably time to ship it and let it go.

Riddle Me This...

I find that there are two types of writers.

First there are the perfectionists.

Then there are those who think that good enough is good enough, and once they've written something they ship it. They put it out there for everyone to buy and enjoy.

The perfectionists take a long time to ship their work, and sometimes they don't ship at all. They put their writing away and ignore it.

The good enough writers, write and polish their work until it's good enough to ship, and then they ship it.

They also write and ship often because they aren't waiting for perfection.

There is no such thing as perfection.

Whatever you publish there are going to be those that love it and those that hate it.

But you're not writing for those that hate your work, so ignore them.

And even if you think your work is perfect, there will still be those that hate it.

But that doesn't mean your work is bad.

It's just different strokes for different folks.

So tell me this...

Who do you think is going to make the most money?

The writer who doesn't ship because they're waiting for the fictitious perfection?

Or the writer who writes and edits till good enough is good enough and then ships and writes and ships some more?

Don't wait for perfection.

It aint coming.

Write & Publish an Ebook in 10 Days + Earn $1,000/month

A few years ago I wrote one of my best selling ebooks, Living The Laptop Lifestyle: How to Start & Grow a Profitable Online Business So You Can Quit Your Job, and I did it using Nick Daws' amazing writing and publishing course, The 10 Day Ebook (hi Nick).

I started out sceptically thinking that it couldn't be done because the sales page offered that not only could I use The 10 Day Ebook to write my ebook in 10 days, but I could also earn $1,000 a month from it

And this was guaranteed!

So I tried it out and to my amazement, it worked.

I'd bought ebooks by this same author before so I knew his stuff was good.

I also co-authored a massive ebook (The Wealthy Writer) with him a few years before I bought and downloaded The 10 Day Ebook, but I was still sceptical (aren't we all?).

But I figured I had nothing to lose because it came with a full money back guarantee if I hadn't written an ebook in 10 days and earned $1,000 in a month, so I figured I had nothing to lose. Even if it took me twice as long to write the ebook and earn a thousand dollars from it, I could still get my money back AND keep earning money from my own ebook.

But it worked like a charm and to this day Living The Laptop Lifestyle: How to Start & Grow a Profitable Online Business So You Can Quit Your Job is still earning me money.

The 10 Day Ebook is over 100 pages of step-by-step instructions for getting your own ebook written and published fast.

Even if you don't know what to write, it will take you from idea to finished ebook in less than 2 weeks.

And it comes with three bonuses:

  • 12 Techniques to Devise a Killer Title
  • Essential Resources for E-Book Authors
  • How To Get Other People to Write Your E-book for You

I don't recommend writing products and courses to others unless I think they're great.

And I can personally vouch for this one because I bought and used it myself.

So if I can write and publish Living The Laptop Lifestyle in just 10 days, what can you do?

Start this year the way you mean to go on.

Get your next ebook written in just 10 days.

AND earn $1,000/month.

Hello To Another Year of Writing

This is my last piece of writing that I'll be publishing this year.

Tomorrow is New Years Day and the first day of 2018.

And while it's a good time to say goodbye to all the things you don't want, it's also time to say hello to what you do want.

I've read a lot about LOA, Law Of Attraction, which states over and over that you get what you're thinking about.

Or more importantly, it feeds on your negative and positive emotions.

In other words, it doesn't matter if you think you can't do something or you think you can, you're right both times.

So if you're feeling bad about being in debt, you'll stay in debt.

Or if you're feeling happy about paying off your debt you'll pay it off and get out of debt because you're positive about it.

So when you're thinking about your writing goals for next year, think positively about them.

And if they don't make you feel positive, maybe you're thinking about what you "should" be doing instead of what you want to do.

The question is, what kind of writing would you want to do if anything was possible?

Do you want to be a blogger?

What do you want to write about?

Do you want to be a copywriter?

SEO writer?


Ebook writer?


Whatever it is, what type of writer do you want to be?

You don't even need to know how you're going to do it.

Just feel the positive emotion of whatever appeals to you the most.

Trust your feelings. They'll let you know what you really want to do by how you're feeling.

And feeling good about what you want to do helps give you the motivation to do it.

And then you'll figure out the how.

See you next year.

How Time-Saving Is This?

I always try and save time.

One of my pet peeves is wasted time because of inefficiency.

That’s why I try and have my own systems and wicked ways of how I do things.

The rest of my family laugh and say I have OCD.

But it’s not.

I’m just efficient with my time.

I have set ways of how I complete tasks whether it’s household chores, online work, or writing.

You see, I figured out a long time ago that successful businesses have efficient systems.

For instance, when I used to work in an office, we had a system for filing physical files so that if someone needed a file, they knew exactly where it would be in the filing cabinet.

There were also rules and systems for how we handled everything, with processes to go through and everything was kept exactly where it was supposed to be so that no time was lost looking for something.

And if a customer came in with a query, we knew exactly who to send them to and that person knew exactly what to do.

See? Efficient systems.

And if someone new started working there, they were quickly shown what we do, how we did it, and where everything was kept.

And it’s the same with a writing business.

Just imagine if you were hiring an assistant and you had to explain your work-flow to them and show them how you file everything on your computer and/or in your office.

Could you do it?

Do you have simple systems and work-flow patterns that you could easily explain to someone else?

For instance, if you wanted to explain how you handle your email, could you say, “If I get an email from this company, I deal with it this way,” and show them exactly what you do with it?

Or explain the exact process you go through to research and outline a book before you write it?

If not, then you may need to re-organise how you work to save more time for your writing.

The Miracle of Tidying

A few months ago, my daughter wanted me to find something in her room.

It was some important papers that she’d left behind when she went out, so she needed me to photograph them and email them to her.

The problem was that she didn’t know where she’d put them.

So there I was on the phone with her, and she’s saying, “Look in my bottom desk drawer,” and “Maybe it’s in that box in the top of my cupboard.”

She had me looking everywhere.

But what I couldn’t understand was how she didn’t know where she’d put them.

I’m just the opposite of that.

If she’s looking for something in the house and asks me where it is, I say, “It’s in the chest of drawers next to the window. Second drawer down, on the right-hand side at the back.”

I know EXACTLY where my things are.

I also keep my digital files the same way, so when I need to bring up a file I haven’t used in years, I still know exactly where it is.

And do you know what I gain from this the most?


I save hours every week by being tidy.

Whenever I finish using something, I store it in its place.

A place for everything and everything in its place.

That’s time management 101.

Fighting Resistance to Writing


I fight it nearly every day.

I love to write and yet I have to fight resistance to do it.

And just because I beat it one day, it doesn’t get rid of it.

When it comes to sitting down and getting my writing done, I always seem to have an excuse -

~ Too tired

~ Too busy

~ Too hot

~ Too cold

~ Not feeling creative enough

~ Too worried

And then one day I realised what the real problem was.

It wasn’t resistance to writing.

It was resistance to sitting down and getting started.

Once I start working it’s easy to keep going.

I just have to start.

And it works with everything.

Once I fight the resistance to begin, it’s easy to keep going.

All it takes is to stop making excuses.

And just start.

Instant Idea Overload

A few days ago, I sat and brainwaved for new ideas about writing and moving my online business forward.

It was a really great session that went on for hours (I had a lunch break and an after tea break during it).

I sat taking notes and more notes and even more notes and then wrote them all out in more detail and re-arranged them into the order that they need to be done.

It began with me mulling over just one idea.

Then I put in my earbuds and started listening to my 'Creative Spark' audio.

And before I knew what was happening - Boom!

The ideas started to flow and a plan was hatched.

I kept replaying the 30-minute audio and kept writing.

Creative Spark is one of the tracks on the Brain Salon audio collection.

There is also Super Razor Focus, Ultimate Deep Sleep, Happy Pill, Power Chill and High Energy Expresso.

At the moment, Creative Spark is my favourite.

I know that I've talked about Brain Salon before, but it is just so great.

It's not cheap to buy, but it really is worth every cent of the price, and I can use the tracks on the go, unlike some audios that you have to close your eyes and stop everything you're doing to use them.

I just plug in whichever I need and get to work.

I've been using Brain Salon for years and I use it almost daily.

But like I said, it's not cheap to buy, but nothing worth having ever is.

Write a Book That People Want To Read

Before you write a book there’s one thing that you need to have first.

And you must have it before you even write one word.

Do you know what this one thing is?


You need people who want to read your book.

So how do you make them want to read it?

You answer the question that they’re all thinking:

“What’s in it for me?”

No one will buy anything, not even a book, if it doesn’t benefit them in some way.

They don’t care how good your book is. They only care about how it can help them.

So why should they read it?

You need to answer this question when you market your book.

And it’s also what you need to put in every chapter.

You need to tell them “why” they need to keep reading what you’re going to tell them.

In my ebook “The 7-Day Ebook Writing and Publishing System” putting a “why” in every chapter and in all your marketing is discussed in detail.

And that’s just one of the ways it will help you write and sell more books.

Just think of how many books you could write in a year and how much money could you earn if you knew how to write and publish a book in just 7 days?

Writing Doesn’t Get Easier. You Get Better.

No matter what you want to do in life, you can only get good at it with practice.

This is why writing every day is SO important, because the more you write, the faster and better you get which makes it feel so much easier.

Think of it like a bricklayer learning to lay bricks.

If you’ve ever watched them, they’re really fast at what they do and so precise.

It’s amazing to watch how they slap down bricks and scrape on mortar so quickly and yet the bricks are spaced apart perfectly and the thickness of the mortar between them is so even.

Yet they seem to be slapping it on haphazardly.

But that’s how practice helps them to be so efficient and skilled.

They weren’t born with that ability. It took years of practice and apprenticeship.

And it’s the same with everything we do.

Remember the first time you ever tried to drive a car?

At first, it seemed so hard with so much to do at the same time with gears, accelerator, brakes, indicators, steering, and mirrors. Not to mention all the other traffic on the road, and watching speed signs, road signs and traffic lights.

But then after much practice, driving seemed so much easier and you no longer had to think about what you were doing. And now you just get in and drive.

And it's the same with writing because the more you do it, the easier it seems and so the faster you get.

But it’s not because the writing is easier to do. It’s the same. Just like laying bricks or learning to drive a car.

None of those things change. It’s just you that gets better.

And if you have a writing system that you use over and over again, it will soon seem as though the books write themselves.

That’s why I published my 7 Day Ebook Writing and Publishing System that takes you from idea to finished ebook - AND sales -  in just 7 days.

And you can use it over and over again.

Once you have a system that works, you just have to use it for all your books to get them all written fast.

Plus you’ll also receive the bonus ebook, How to Write a Short Report in 2 Hours.

It makes writing books SEEM easy, but it’s just helping you to get better.

Writing Articles Quickly

“Speedy Typing With Keyboard” by adamr
The Following is an excerpt from my ebook "How to Write an Article in 15 Minutes or Less: Including research, proof reading and editing." - -

15 minutes is a generous amount of time to research and write an article. With practice, you should be able to do it in 10 minutes, so instead of writing 4 articles an hour, you can write 6. That’s a 50% increase in production.

When you’re earning money per article, time is money, so the faster you can write, the better.
Your own articles, with good keywords and useful information, could earn you $20 to $100 in consistent sales, depending on what you’re selling and how hungry your market is.

You can use article writing to build an online business and start earning money straight away.
You could, if you wanted to, spend half a day ghost writing for clients - for instant money, and the rest of the day writing for yourself.

Or you could spend half a day writing ebooks and the other half writing articles to promote them.
But you need to start writing so that you can quickly get into the habit of writing fast.

So don’t just passively read this ebook. Take action. Start writing articles straight away and by this time next week, you’ll have written your first 100 articles.

Or even if you achieve only half that amount, it’s 50 more articles than you wrote this week.

And 50 articles in one week is a lot. You could upload the best ones to your website and use the rest for online marketing. 50 articles means you’ll have enough content for your website straight away.

Some people set up a blog or website and then sit there scratching their head because they don’t know what to do next.

So they upload one or two pages of content, have no idea how to move forward from there and get bored and say that making money online is impossible.

How different would it be if they had up to 100 pages of content already written in just one week because they’d used the 15 minute article writing system that you’re about to learn?

If you can write up to 100 articles a week, you’ve got the ability to set up as many niche websites that you want or ghost write articles for money consistently.

You can also set up an email campaign to sell more products or produce short ebooks to sell or to use for marketing.

And it all starts with being able to write articles quickly.

I hope this chapter has given you some idea of how many articles you can write and different ways you can use them to earn money.

But you must start writing articles. Today! And every day after today.

Build up your article writing habit now.

I hope this short excerpt has inspired you to want to down load the ebook and the 2 bonus products that come with it: "10 Ways to Make Money Writing Articles" and "How to Write 1 Article in 7 Different Ways."

These ebooks will get you up and writing fast. Plus with the bonus ebooks, you can take one article idea, write it 7 different ways and make money from it in 10 different ways.

And if you already own these ebooks, why aren't you writing more articles?

Time is money my friends.

Get Your Novel Written

BAM - Book A Month

Is there a novel you’ve been meaning to write but just haven’t gotten around to it?

Or have you started writing a novel a really long time ago but just haven’t finished?

Well here is an easy way to get that novel written.

The first thing you need to do is plan what you’re going to write. I find that writing is much more fun when I have a plan to work from. That way all the hard thinking work is done so all I need to do is write.

The first part of your plan needs to be an outline which includes the main plot, two to three subplots, main characters and supporting characters. And also a few hooks to keep your readers reading. Hooks are things that are hinted at but won’t be revealed until later in the story.

You also need to decide how many chapters you’re going to write and how long each one will be. It’s important to know these things so that you can stick to your word count.

Next, you need to decide how much you can realistically expect to write every day. Don’t over estimate this otherwise you’ll feel disappointed every time you don’t reach your daily word count. On the other hand, if you set your expectations low, every time you achieve it or do much more, it will make you feel motivated to keep going.

Then you need to do the writing. Just make sure you meet your word count every day. Tell yourself you can’t go to bed until your word count is met.

And then do just do it. Show up every day and get your novel written.

But don’t do it instead of the other writing you should be doing.

You can still earn income from your other freelance writing and affiliate marketing while writing your books at the same time.

And every day you’ll feel like a winner AND you’ll be earning money from your writing.

It’s a win-win.

Are You Writing Enough?

“Frustrated Young Executive” by imagerymajestic
One of the biggest complaints I hear from writers is that they don’t get enough writing done every day.

This is the topic of my latest article called “Where Does My Writing Time Go?”

And this problem happens every day.

You get up in the morning with high hopes and great intentions of getting plenty of writing done - writing a few articles, finishing your latest book, submitting a couple of freelance proposals.

But all of a sudden - BANG!

The day is over and although you’ve been busy all day, jumping from one task to another, you’ve barely touched your writing.

So you promise yourself that tomorrow will be different…but it never is.

If you’re experiencing this phenomena, one of the reasons for it could be that you haven’t established your preferred writing time.

We all know that having a good writing routine is important, but it wont’ help you if you're doing it at the wrong time of day.

You see some of us are morning writers, some work better in the afternoons while others are happier working in the evenings, burning the proverbial midnight oil.

I know one person who settles down to write at 9 or 10 pm every evening and keeps going till the early hours of the morning.

Admittedly he’s a late riser every day, but it doesn’t matter because he does whatever he wants all day before settling down to write again in the evening.

In the best selling book 2k to 10K, author Rachel Aaron explains how she tried different times to write and recorded her progress. To her amazement she found she was most productive in the afternoon, even though she was sure she was a morning person. And that’s how she increased her writing speed from 2,000 words/hour to 10,000.

So if you’re not getting enough writing done every day, try out a few different times to write and see if you are really a morning, afternoon or evening writer.

And if you do need to change the time of day (or evening) when you write, be prepared because it will take you out of your comfort zone and you will have to make sacrifices.

But before you know it, your new writing routine will be of such a benefit to you (as in, how much more you can get done) that you won’t mind at all.

Read more about how Rachel Aaron went from writing 2,000 an hour to 10,000 words.

The Real “Secret” To Writing Success

In the title of this post I’ve used quotes around the word “secret” because there is no real secret to being a successful writer.

It just takes work.

But it’s good work.

And if you do the work you WILL see results - no matter what your situation.

So if  you’re not currently seeing the success from your writing that you want, then you need to take a step back and look at what you’re doing.

What is it that’s holding you back?

What have you been putting off?

What is it that you know you need to do?

What is it that you’re looking for?

Are you looking for an excuse?

Or are you looking for success?

Whatever you’re looking for, you WILL find it.

But what it all comes down to is whether you’re willing to do the work.

Because that is the real “secret” to becoming a successful writer.
