The Free-Write Fling can help you
write what you want with joy and ease.
February 1 – 29, 2016
Do you want to write but consistently blow it off? I know the feeling. It’s like carrying a heavy bag of your gifts on your back, all tied up and weighing you down.
That feeling of stuffing down, stifling and holding back your voice and your words is not okay with me. I’m Cynthia Morris, and I’ve been coaching writers to get their words out of their heads and into the world since 1996.
There’s one method that I swear by for any kind of writer, for any kind of writing. It’s a sure cure for writer’s block and let me tell you, once you learn this process, you’ll never feel burdened by your writing dreams again. It’s called free-writing, and in a facilitated, safe environment, this method can change not only your writing, but your life, for the better.
I’ve been teaching this method in my online class, the Free-Write Fling, since 2007. Hundreds of people have gone from wannabe writer to published writers, getting books, blogs, essays and articles out of their heads and onto the page. Oh sweet relief!
Join us for the next session of the Free-Write Fling and become the writer you know you are. We meet February 1st – 29th, 2016.
I know you want to write consistently. You crave the zest you get from that expressing yourself.
But you don’t write. You consistently blow off your big dream – to be a writer – for the sake of easy stuff. Laundry. Social media. The usual. The impact of that is deadening. You lose trust in yourself. Your inner critic gets food for abuse – and you don’t deserve that.
It’s time to take your dream and make it real. Make writing a fun, daily habit. Here’s how we’ll write together:
I will teach you the free-writing method, a simple way to unleash your words onto the page. We will use daily prompts to get past the inner critic.
We keep things simple and dedicate a mere 15 minutes per day to writing. That may not seem like a lot, but trust me, it adds up. Every one of my coaching clients starts with this small time investment and quickly builds to longer sessions.
On your own time, whenever it’s convenient, you will write daily. Flingers come into the private online classroom to get their prompts and return to connect with other writers. This social accountability makes a huge difference, and getting coaching from me makes the writing process fun and easy.
You can use the free-writing method immediately for a book, your blog, articles or other writing projects you’ve avoided or dreaded. Right away you can turn your writing into something that feels great and easy.
You’ll begin to crave and love your writing time. You’ll connect with your voice, have fun and finally develop a writing practice that works for you, your schedule and your writing goals.
After the month is finished, you’ll be hooked and won’t dread writing ever again. What’s that worth to you? You’ve probably taken other writing classes that cost a lot of money but don’t leave you with a lasting writing practice.
One thing people always ask: How is free-writing different than journaling? They are similar in that they both can provide a flow state with your words. Journaling is usually for your personal, private writing.
Free-writing can be used for ANY type of writing, personal or professional. When you use specific prompts, they guide you to get your ideas out on a specific topic. This helps you stay focused so you can get out drafts of blogs, essays and even your books.
Finally, you’ve found the writing class that will help you establish a meaningful connection to your writing goals and offers a way to write that works for you. What’s this worth? It’s impossible to put a price on the kind of personal power we feel when we are on track with our writing. Students in this class report a joy and freedom they’ve never accessed. Usually around day five, the lid is blown off the writing treasure chest and people are beyond thrilled to find their voice and writing stride.
Your investment in your writing joy is only $97. Payoffs from establishing a writing practice that works for you: Priceless.
Here are some of the words students use to describe how the Free-Write Fling feels for them:
If you want to write and have been held back by fears, lack of time and other excuses, join us. I want you to have the kind of experience people from all walks of life, all kinds of writing and from all across the globe get from this online class.
The cost is only $97 and it’s one of the best investments you can make in your writing life.

“Yesterday I wrote for 40 minutes. Taking this course allowed me to really prioritize writing. It’s not a possibility that gets pushed to the wayside. It’s a must-do every day.
I see what it feels like when I do this every day and it renews my ‘addiction’ to it. And the more I do it, the more I turn to it. Doing this for a small or larger period of time every day is a very wise use of my time.” — Aimee Cartier
“The Free-write Fling has been amazing. I write every day. I have finally gotten my thoughts down on paper where I can see them and edit ideas as I think about them. I’m not “losing” things because they are right here in my journal. My thoughts are organized now too. Thank you!!!!!” — Barbara Talbott
The best thing about this is the cost: for this kind of accountability, support and results, you’d expect to pay hundreds of dollars, right? The coaching alone costs $250.
But no. All of this – a month of writing in community, guided by a veteran writer’s coach – only $97. And once you’ve done the FWF, every class after that is offered at the repeater rate.
We fling our words onto the page with joy and abandon from February 1st – 29th, 2015.
“My commitment to writing daily has shifted the way my brain thinks about writing. I was stuck looking for ideas about what to write on my blog, or what to write to polish and submit to ezines.Now, the ideas are starting to just pop in without having to go pounding on the door to get at them. That is a HUGE shift for me. Thanks for the daily inspiration!” — Carmen Taggart
- instruction in the craft of writing, though I will respond to questions about writing in the Fling Zone.
- journaling or morning pages.
- feedback, critique, or ‘workshopping’ your writing.
- a death march to the finish line.
If you complete the month-long free-writing fling (every single day, 15 minutes per day!) you will be entered into a drawing for two one-one coaching sessions with Cynthia.
Everyone who completes every day in the month receives a copy of Cynthia’s e-book Cross the Finish Line! Five Steps to Overcome the Hurdles to Completion.
“FWF has taught me that I can write, any time, under any conditions. Any excuse that I may use to the contrary is just that … an excuse, not the truth.
Now I write five days a week and only if I really want to on the other days (and I often really want to).” — Karen Bayly
We do not critique or provide feedback on your writing in the Free-Write Fling. We leave that for writing workshops that focus on developing your skills in writing. In this workshop, we focus on creating the safe space we all need to dare to write our stories. You’ll love the freedom this gives you.
The Free-Write Fling is an amazing opportunity to get the support of a trained professional surrounded by a tribe of enthusiastic writers. You will love it.
Give yourself the gift of a month to explore your writing and discover what’s inside you, waiting to come out.
“Cynthia, thanks for your wonderful, supportive replies to our comments during the FWF. Your reply about respecting our process meant a lot to me.
I’m finally accepting and understanding what works for me!” — Carolyn Barnabo
“I am sad to be nearing the end of the FWF. I’ve learned so much. This experience is launching me more into writing than I had ever expected.
I’m in the writing groove, and I don’t want to stop. I’m really looking forward to what comes of this, and more FWF next time!” — Jeanne Christensen
“This may have been the best yet! Your images are so incredible, Cynthia, such a treasure trove. Totally unexpected and new perspective for my writing experience. Much fun, surprising flow of ideas!
I wrote all 31 days, effortlessly, and well over the fifteen minutes. This Fling gave me structure, further inroads into fiction, etc. The Free Write Fling was a great enhancement to my writing practice.” — Sandra Henderson
