SummaryJoin novelist Peg Cheng in learning how fear is a natural part of the creative process and how you can use fear to propel your writing, rather than hinder it.
DescriptionTelling 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. Instead of fighting it, work with it. Through stories, mindfulness, and free-writing, you will discover simple, realistic ways to face your fear, get to know it, and use it propel your writing, rather than hinder it. With fear on your side, there’s nothing stopping you from being the writer you want to be.

Peg Cheng writes novels for kids and adults at an old desk in a tall house in a quaint fishing village run by condo overlords. Peg encounters Fear every time she writes but after years of trying to avoid it, she now brings it a sandwich and lets it ride in the backseat. Find out more about Peg and her writing adventures at pegcheng.com. In case you haven’t guessed it yet, Peg lives in and writes from Ballard.
