Do you have a story, novel, memoir, screenplay, or poem that you’ve been thinking about for years, but haven’t written?
When you try to write, do you almost always feel an urge to do something else?
Does procrastination or fear stop you from writing?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, you are not alone.
When I became a full-time writer, I answered YES to every one of these questions.
That’s why I created the Fear & Writing course.
Once I learned how to face fear and keep writing, I wanted to help others do it too.
WHAT’S FEAR & WRITING ABOUT?
Telling a writer to write without fear is like telling a human to breathe without oxygen. It’s impossible to do and why would you want to? Fear is a natural part of the creative process. In this course, I’ll show you how to face fear and keep writing. I did it and I know you can too.
WHO TEACHES THE COURSE?
FEAR & WRITING is taught by me, Peg Cheng, using fun videos, short readings, and inspiring writing exercises. I wrote novels, screenplays, stories, and poems part-time for 12 years before becoming a full-time writer in 2016. I was motivated to create this course after I taught my Fear & Writing workshop for the Seattle Public Library in Fall 2017 and realized there were a lot of people like me–people who had fear when it came to writing.
WHO SHOULD TAKE THE COURSE?
This course is for anyone who wants to write, but is stopped by fear or procrastination. I’m here to show you that facing fear doesn’t have to be terrible and difficult; instead, it can be fun and empowering, leading to more self-knowledge and confidence. Watch this video to get a feel for the course.
HOW DOES THE COURSE WORK?
Every day for 7 days, you’ll open an email from me and you will:
1. Read the day’s lesson,
2. Watch the day’s video,
3. Write to five prompts for three minutes each, and
4. Email me the date and time of your writing session.
On Day 8, you’ll do a reflection exercise and email that to me.
That’s it. Simple yet effective.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE?
You’ll need to set aside 30 minutes a day for 8 consecutive days. Pick a time that works best for you.
WHAT SUPPLIES DO I NEED?
4. Smart phone, tablet, or computer
DO I GET TO INTERACT WITH THE INSTRUCTOR?
Yes! Absolutely! That’s one of the key benefits of this course. In addition to sending me the date/time of your writing session, I encourage you to send me your thoughts and reactions from each lesson. When you do, I’ll send you a personalized email back, and maybe even a drawing or two! You’re not an anonymous customer to me–you are my student–and I look forward to connecting and supporting you throughout the course. Sign me up!
WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING:
Thank you so much for your teachings, support, positivity, and guidance. I delight in seeing your videos, you give me courage to carry on! I have found your instructions to be clear, easy, brief and very true. I know this truth because I have already been writing for four consecutive days! Oh my, pinch me! We are very fortunate to have you as our instructor. BRAVO to you! — Bobbi
I am loving the course! Can’t believe it’s Day 6 already. Today, I wrote about the sound of my children’s voicemail messages. This is the first time I’ve written about how intimate it feels to hear their voices without seeing their faces; how many layers of their raw and nuanced emotion I’m able to attune to when the sound is isolated like that. Thanks again, Peg, for sharing this experience with us fearful writers! — Rumi
The prompts were all thought provoking and interesting. I never felt like I was struggling to write because the prompt questions were so fruitful. Also, three minutes felt perfect. The writing was less than one page so it felt really do-able and not intimidating. I liked your videos too—they were warm and supportive and funny. — Elizabeth
