Want to create a long-lasting writing routine?

You don’t need to work harder. You need to work differently.

Have you ever sat down totally exhausted and tried to force creative ideas to come? My guess is it was like trying to get water from an empty well.

What you have been taught about productivity and creativity is wrong.

You don’t need to write every day at the exact same time.

You don’t need to wake up at 4 a.m. and bust out a novel before work.

What you DO NEED is a writing ritual that feels good to your soul, brings you joy, and fits into your existing life.


Sustaining Your Creativity is the premier online workshop to help you build a writing routine that banishes shame, embraces rest, and makes you feel more alive.

Lauren’s workshop [Sustaining Your Creativity] was one of the most memorable and satisfying ones I’ve EVER attended – a masterful combo of stories that hit deep, supremely actionable tips, and loving/zero-BS wisdom about the creative life I’ve never heard anywhere else … and literally kept front of mind (and quoted to people repeatedly!) for the whole year since I attended!

What You’ll Learn

Take this 3-hour workshop with Lauren and get the exact formula that’s helped hundreds of busy entrepreneurs, overworked parents, and tapped out creatives creating regular writing rituals — without sacrificing their relationships, health, or joy.


Your 3-Pillar Legacy

When was the last time you felt truly excited about writing?

It’s hard to be creative when life is pulling you in a million directions at once. That’s why knowing WHY you write is as important as knowing how to write.

By defining your 3-Pillar Legacy, not only will you write more, but you’ll find more clarity, focus, and purpose for every aspect of your life.

Plus, you’ll get really solid on setting boundaries and not letting menial tasks keep you from what you value most.

What you’ll gain from this section:

  • Statistic backed knowledge of why most creative endeavors fail (HINT: it’s not that you are lazy or untalented).
  • A deep understanding of your creative purpose – your North Star for making important life decisions and planning your schedule.
  • The approach to prioritization that completely transforms my clients’s lives – and will help you feel like you’re making the most of your one wild and precious life.


5 R’s of Creative Energy Regeneration

You’re not lazy, you’re exhausted.

Hustle culture teaches us that the way to achieve our goals is more, more more! But adding more to your plate doesn’t lead to productivity, it leads to burn out.

Not only with the 5R’s help you regenerate your creative energy, they’ll also help you make sure you don’t burn out again.

Think of them as your go-to friends, helping you to set boundaries, prioritize rest, and have the energy you need to make your long-term goals a reality.

What you’ll gain from this section:

  • An easy to remember list of the five things you need to do when your energy bucket is empty.
  • The research-backed permission slip you need to incorporate each of the 5R’s into your weekly routine.
  • Compassion for your past self and an understanding of what you need to do to move forward as a creative within capitalism.


Stoplight Method of Time Management

No shame-inducing time audits or boring formal spreadsheets here.

You’re going to learn the fun, colorful, and powerful technique for incorporating writing into your existing schedule that has completely transformed my clients’s lives!

This tool alone is worth thousands of dollars and will shock (and impress) you with its simplicity and ease.

What you’ll gain from this section:

  • A whole new way of thinking about planning your calendar and blocking your time.
  • The exact time management system I’ve used to build a thriving writing career – the only one I know that’s actually EASY, FUN and EMPOWERING.
  • The #1 tool that’s helped my VIP clients – celebrities, CEO’s, and busy parents – to take charge of their schedule and make time for the things that matter most to them.

You Deserve More …


According to Harvard Medical School studies, 15 minutes a day of journaling has been shown to reduce depression, anxiety, and hostility.


People who do expressive writing after a biopsy are 76% healed within a week, versus 46% of the control group, according to Scientific American journal articles.


Remember when you used to finger paint and write little stories as a kid? Creativity is innately part of your humanity and it’s time to tap back into the fun of writing.

Writing isn’t a luxury, it’s your birth right.

Is this workshop for me? What if I’m not *really* a writer, just someone who jots stuff down here and there?

If you have ever journaled, wrote a thoughtful social media post, or written something for school (even if it was years ago) – YOU ARE A WRITER!

Around here, we believe that everyone is a writer and everyone deserves a life full of creativity and stories.

Even if you only have an inkling of an idea that you want more writing in your life, then this workshop is for you.

And let’s be real, if you’ve read this far, you have more than an inkling. You have a burning desire for more writing in your life.

So what are you waiting for?

Sign-up and start making time for writing in your life today!

How long will the workshop take me to complete?

The whole workshop is three hours long, including the work time you do within it.

The systems and techniques you will learn in the program take about an hour a week to implement in your life, plus all the time you’ll free up to be creative going forward in your life.

You will also get 30 days of email bonuses to help you implement the material.

How long do I have access to the program material? Why do you limit access after a certain time?

Our goal first and foremost is to help you make space in your life for artistic creativity. We don’t want you to sit on this program material and never use it.

Deadlines get people to take action and so we’ve implemented the 30-day post-workshop limit to help make sure you actually take the program and do the work.

You’ll have lifetime access to the material, but you’ll only have 30 days of email support from us to keep you accountable.

If you want extended accountability, join my Write Your Friggin’ Book Already® program where you’ll get access to this workshop and many others for the life of your membership.

Do you offer refunds?

Because you get instant access to the course material and the workshop link, and because we want you to show up and be held accountable to making time for creativity in your life, we do not offer refunds of any kind, except where legally required.

Do you offer scholarships?

The value of Sustaining Your Creativity is above and beyond the price you pay to join. Lauren’s VIP private clients pay $30,000 for six-months of coaching to work through the systems you’ll learn in this workshop.

We know that $30,000 is not affordable for most people, so Lauren created this half-day workshop to teach these powerful skills to those who are still growing their writing careers and creative assets.

While this current price is a GREAT deal for this high-end program, we’ve been broke artists before and understand that many creatives lack access to resources, especially those who come from historically marginalized and systemically oppressed communities.

Which is why we offer 10% of spots in all our programs to people from underserved and under-resourced communities who would otherwise not be able to afford it.

On top of that 10% of spots saved for people who would otherwise not be able to afford the program, this workshop is always free to refugees, people seeking asylum, people experiencing homelessness, anyone on permanent disability, or members of any indigienous tribe, including the Kumeyaay, who are the original inhabitants of the stolen land on which Lauren lives and School for Writers operates.

Our scholarships are on an honor system, which means if you say you need one we believe you. To get a scholarship, please email us at at courses@laurenmariefleming.com with “Scholarship for Sustaining Your Creativity” in the subject line.

What’s your success rate?

Lauren has a 99% success rate with her coaching clients and a 95% satisfaction rate in her programs. Which means this stuff works!

I’m ready to transform my life through writing!
