Excuses, excuses. Do you want to become an author or not? Here are three of the biggest excuses to becoming an author and what you can do to overcome them!

EXCUSE # 1 "I just don't have the time to become an author."

I hear this excuse all the time but the fact is that we all have the same 24 hours each day. People make time for what they want to do it is as simple as that. Have you ever seen a golf nut say I don't have time to play golf or a TV fanatic say I don't have time to watch my favorite TV show. It simply does not happen because we always make time for what we truly want to do.

Where we try to kid ourselves is by saying something will take more time than it actually takes. I mean if you thought your book was going to take you two years of hard work to write you probably don't have that time. But the fact of the matter is that using our BRWT Force technology, which we show you how to use later in the book, you will only need about 40 hours to write your entire book.

So if you could write for 30 minutes per day it will still only take you about two and one half months to complete. If you write for an hour a day it will only take a little over a month to write your book.

You have to set aside the time to write, just like you do for work. You could get up an hour earlier, go to bed an hour later or take a shorter lunch break. You do have the time needed because it does not take a lot of time to write a book, contrary to what most people will tell you.

You already know what value it will add to you and your family's life so just block out some extra time each day and your book will be finished before you know it. If you spent a half hour each day reading this book you now have that half hour to put toward writing your own book.

When you think about it, you can write several books a year if you wanted to. Don't wait just get started because the investment versus the return is second to none.

EXCUSE # 2 "I Can't Become A Writer Because I'm Not A Writer."

This is one the most ridiculous myths ever circulated by man. Bottom line is that if you can hold a conversation, then you can write a book. Most people try to complicate the writing process by trying to sound too articulate. When writers try to sound to articulate they can't write as fast and the writing is much harder to understand.

Want me to prove to you that anyone can be a good writer. Do you have a loved one, ex girl or boyfriend that use to always write you letters of love or what they were up to at that time in their life? Remember how good those letters were and how much you looked forward to them?

Now I want you to think whether that person was an avid book reader or had taken a course in writing. Almost always the answer would be no. They were merely writing the way they talk.

Don't over think this one it will stop you in your tracks you only have to be able to hold a conversation and put that conversation on paper. You will learn with our BRWT Force technology that not only can you write, but you can write fast. In fact the faster you write the better your writing will be.

I know this sounds crazy, but it is true nonetheless. You don't have to be a "writer" to write a book. Ok, I've said it. Now you know the truth. You will be a fabulous writer if you just write the way you talk.

I bet when you talk to your friends you don't use big or hard-to- understand words. If you did, you would sound ridiculous and it is the same when you write. Most of your audience will not understand the big words but all of your audience will understand the small words.

EXCUSE # 3 "I Can't Become A Writer Because I'm A Procrastinator."

There are many reasons why people tend to procrastinator. Their afraid they wont' write well enough, or that do it at the right time or whatever excuse they believe in their own mind for why they keep putting off the task at hand.

The excuses are endless for delay but they are also just that-excuses. None have any more legitimacy than what you give them. They are merely a figment of your imagination.

Here is the best way to break through the procrastinator's barrier:

1. Book a time to start your writing.

2. Put all thoughts or excuses out of your mind except for your starting time.

3. Realize that your starting time will be the most important thing to do and nothing will get in your way.

4. Start.

Let no other distraction enter the process because the first time you follow these steps will lead to the second time and it gets easier each time you sit down to write your book.

Once you have broken the procrastination barrier, you will find that your book will materialize quickly before your eyes. Once it is written it is done and to be enjoyed for the rest of your life and possibly longer. Your book will take on a life of its own so don't fall victim to your own thoughts of procrastination.

So now that we've blown three big excuses out of the water, what's stopping you? Still unable to pull it off? Read this 5 Secrets To Writing A Book In-1 Week and then tell me what's your excuse?
