When I was earning a BFA, I had a painting professor who forced me to severely limit my color palate. I grumbled about it at the time, but I found that the creation of forced guidelines freed me and taught me the significance of self-imposed rules.

Fast forward some years, and I have just completed day 37 of my year-long project using 365: A Daily Creativity Journal. So far this process has given me, through structure, a similar, freeing experience.

Scalin's process, as laid out in his book, has made me accountable for daily, completed creative production and has forced me to let go by midnight. I cannot put it off, and I cannot over analyze my work or give up on it.

I have been forced to work quickly and to accept my work for what it is. The creation of a blog and being a member of the 365 online community created by Scalin have reinforced this. The result has been increased productivity, yes, but more importantly, a new set of eyes for my own work.

The book gives examples of diverse daily projects as inspiration and ideas for daily projects, so one never feels stranded without an idea. However, the book is not imposing, and people can use it in different ways: as a journal, as a place to keep notes, as daily inspiration, or as a jolt of inspiration when it is needed.

The book's suggestions are unconventional and varied. Some are more challenging while some are gentle prods. Nothing requires expensive materials or equipment. Every suggestion is accessible and open-ended, so there are myriad approaches to each one. Scalin approaches projects as puzzles and explorations and not as controlled activities or rigid guidelines.

Does a daily project seem too daunting?

I have been waiting for this book to come out for awhile and it was well worth the wait. I'm a creative type and this book is very inspiring. If you need inspiration, and even if you don't, this makes a wonderful addition to anyone's library. There are great ideas sprinkled throughout the book and the journal section leaves plenty of room to write ideas and thoughts down. I'm so glad I got this book and I highly recommend it. I normally don't reviews books I buy but this one definitely deserves a review. Buy it and you won't regret it.

This book is for the person who may have uttered, "I'm not very creative." We're all creative people; perhaps not all of us are producing, or leading creative lives. This journal is not intended to do your creating for you, or even lead you toward Scalin's idea of the creative life. Instead, like any good teacher, Scalin introduces you to your own creative muscles and shows you how to turn ideas into art, one day at a time. That the process is fun, thoughtful, and often challenging gives this substance beyond other how-to books, which are usually too precious for my liking.

I really enjoy this book. The author is very positive and encouraging. I have found that after doing projects every day for the last month that I dont need the book as much to be creative. It has served as a tool to help me get my creative juices flowing and is an inspiration on the days that I am lacking any real direction. I would definitly recommend this book to anyone that needs a little ispiration, or just some help in thinking outside of the box.

This book is perfect for anyone who's creative and needs motivation or who isn't creative and needs inspiraion.

It's easy to read (which is great if you're dyslexic like me) and full of great ideas. The bulk of the book is in a diary format, with each day giving you an idea to create something.

The great bit is that this is not just a book, there is an amazing online community, where you can share your daily creations, and get great support.

I've been trying to be more creative everyday, and this book has encouraged me to do thing's i'd never dream of before ... and i'm still doing it into February (a resolution first!).

I bought this for my 12 year old daughter for Christmas. When it arrived, I flipped through it and didn't think too muck about it being one of her favorites. She really loves this book. It contains 365 days of really fun craft projects. She is going to try to wait until Jan. 1 to start the crafts and activities because thats how the book is laid out. Great book!!

I was very disappointed after receiving my copy of this book. The 365 project prompts that make up 95% of the book leave a lot to be desired. My sense is that the author put very little time and thought into preparing the prompts. A few examples: "Work with all the utensils you own today", "Make something inspired by and/or that fits on or around a nose (yours or someone else's)", or "Make something that would normally be considered cute and cuddly into something that isn't." I'm sorry, but I think this book has missed the mark and in my opinion definitely is not worth the purchase price. The most interesting part of the book for me was the interviews with other artists. Only two or three interviews are really worth reading, however, and they are extremely short without much substance or "meat" to them. This book was a waste of money!
