  • review: This is an amazing book. Absolutely great at forcing yourself to get out (or in?) and do some stuff - even if it is mundane scribbling on a paper (of the book). Felicia Day is like that hyper-cheerful host of a workshop that you turn up and sit silently at but then get asked in an extremely enthusiastic way to get excited and do some things. The start is annoying, a bit uncomfortable, and there is a dislike for the cheerful excited loud person in the room. But eventually once you start doing things it gets easier then nicer and then fun. The only right way to read (perform?) this book is to do some exercises, get on with life, then come back and do some more. The exercises (let's call them activities?) are stupid, fun, self-reflective, creative. And doing them makes the book personal - this is your creative diary now. The focal point of the book - which it hammers by showing you a mirror - is that you are responsible for the things that hold you back in your own head. I quite enjoyed going through the book - and plan to do the activities in ink someday again. ,
