The good news is, you are not alone. Almost every writer has fears and anxieties. But you can learn how to keep those fears from holding you back.
“As a direct result of taking Article Writing Masterclass and Pitch Clinic, Redbookmag.com has asked me to become one of their freelance relationship writers, and reprinted an essay of mine! Thank you for giving me the confidence and credibility to go after one of my favorite magazines.” --Cortney Fries, freelance writer and Chicken Soup for the Soul contributor.
This recording teaches you effective fear-busters for all the common nerve-wracking writing situations you'll face as a freelance writer. Learn to confidently:
• Send queries
• Take an in-person meeting
• Interview a bigwig (yikes!)
• Call an editor,
• Handle an unsupportive friend—and more! Leave class with scripts to follow to professionally resolve freelance challenges.
In this video, you’ll get our practical exercises for taking action in spite of fears.
While in Session 1 you learned tactics for handling specific freelance situations, week two will tackle more over-arching fears (and their symptoms), including:
• Fear of failure
• Fear of success
• Perfectionism, and more.
Listen to real writers get coached around their biggest fears by writing coach Marla Beck of CoachMarla.com.
Here’s where we really dig in and show you how to think like a coach to put your freelancing fears to rest...for good.
Here’s where the rubber hits the road: We’ll give you a list of 10+ hands-on challenges designed to help you conquer your writing fears.
Then, you start taking simple actions that challenge your fears and vanquish them!
Do up to three of these challenges in the month you purchase this course, post your results on Carol's Make a Living Writing Facebook page, and she'll give you a 15-minute coaching session.
"Fear has had a bigger hold on me than I realized, before this course. I got LOTS of insights from Carol and Linda, who offered so many techniques and resources to deal with fears, bumps, and scrapes.
During the session with Marla Beck—wow—I felt like I’d been let out of prison. By the time she got to the third caller, I knew what my goals were, knew my “why," and knew what’s been holding me back. You CAN write what you want. You CAN negotiate a deadline. You CAN make more money!" —Rita Lewis
