Creative Sprint Review & GIVEAWAY

I've begun my first Creative Sprint! Creative Sprint: Six 30-Day Challenges to Jumpstart Your Creativity by Noah Scalin and Mica Scalin. It's a 224 page Flexibound:  Released – Apr 1 2017 by Voyageur Press. A Creative Sprint is doing something creative, everyday for 30 days. Why? To develop a habit of being creative and to get better at being creative. 30 days because it's a reasonably, manageable, time frame. Anyone can do a Creative Sprint – no experience is necessary. Use the Creative Sprint interactive workbook and follow the prompts. There are six 30-day Creative Sprints inside. Each sprint has it's own theme. Interpret as you like, it's meant to be loosely structured. There are no wrong results. Use any creative medium or style. There are only 3 rules - create daily, share and reflect. Join an online community and share your experience. Use hashtag #creativesprint. Celebrate at the end of each challenge. There are ideas in the book. I find that I look forward to doing the hands-on exercises each day. My creative confidence and skills are growing. AND I'm having FUN! Check back to see my pages. Get your copy below!
