Something About Me and My Book:

Fear of Writing: for writers & closet writers

SINCE 2001, Milli Thornton has been inspiring writers through her book, Website, newsletter, workshops and online course.

Her gentle, fun and supportive attitude has helped many writers heal from old creative wounds, or rediscover a passion for writing that got buried along the way.

Milli has also helped many “closet writers” come out of the closet and believe in their ability to write. Her simple methods go straight to the heart of creativity, and she has a knack for motivating writers to get something new written.

Her writing assignments are often deceptively easy: they “trick” the writer into painlessly producing anecdotes and stories he or she usually didn’t realize was waiting within. The verbalized response is typically “That was fun!”

More about Milli's book and the online course based on her book:

Milli's coaching service:




Fear of Writing is for anyone who experiences a familiar thud in the pit of the stomach when they visualize sitting down to write.

Through stories about fictional characters with fear of writing, you’ll realize you are not alone. You’ll thrill to the powerful and bewitching experiences these characters use to burn through to writing freedom.

Through writing prompts known as Fertile Material, you’ll learn the skills you need to have f-u-n with writing.

Find your passion and teach it!

You don't have to wait for someone to ask you to teach what you know. Learn the baby steps to becoming a workshop presenter . . . you never know what it will lead to! There are many reasons for setting out on this adventure: including promoting a book or other product, overcoming shyness, career advancement, and just plain old-fashioned fun. You will be amazed at how many skills you'll learn—or rusty skills you will dig up—by getting up in front of people to talk about your passion. Written by a shy person who DIA (did it anyway).
