Many of us want to write, but we're not writing! Why? Something is holding us back, and its name is fear. Fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of wasting our time, fear that no one wants or needs what we have to say. This is a universal fear experienced by artists worldwide, and it often stops us from doing the things we want most to do. In this session, book coach Cathy Fyock helps you identify the fears that are holding you back, and gives you some tools to conquer those fears and move forward. Through exercises, her Writers' Pledge, and her Credo, she will "double-dog dare you" to start or finish your book.

Thank you very much, Cathy. I have just finished your 30 day prompt exercise and really enjoyed doing so - having a purpose for getting at my daily writing. Now I feel a bit of a loss - am not getting anywhere with writing my book. Have started doing what you describe which is editing as I write - not a good idea. As you say, it slows you down and takes the life out of the writing. Anyway, your words are always encouraging. Much appreciated.
Thank You Cathy Fyock for sharing your strategies to overcome fear of writing. I like and very much appreciate the timed writing and the prompts. Great presentation!
I am new to your classes but look forward to feedback and seeing what others are doing with their writing. I am working on a book of miracle stories interspersed with conversations with the Holy Spirit, who many do not believe is able to commune with us. I would like your feedback. and yes, there are many counterfeits out there. Mine line up with scripture, and I am certain it is He...but wonder what others think about such things, like Jesus Calling books. Judy P
