Got up to page 82 and gave up. It didn't catch my attention and after reading 1/3 of the book, I figured I should be at least a bit captured at this point.

Maybe 2.7?

It's difficult to review this book since it's really a workbook or even a guide for an art class. There are a few dozen projects that would take a long time to complete. It's a lot more time required than you have with have a borrowed libr

Nicole Krauss
“To paint a leaf, you have to sacrifice the whole landscape. It might seem like you're limiting yourself at first, but after a while you realize that having a quarter-of-an-inch of something you have a better chance of holding on to a certain feeling of the universe than if you pretended to be doing the whole sky. My mother did not choose a leaf or a head. She chose my father, and to hold on to a certain feeling, she sacrificed the world.”
Nicole Krauss, The History of Love

Michael Chabon
“The foolish coyote faith that could keep you flying as long as you kept kidding yourself that you could fly.”
Michael Chabon, The Yiddish Policemen's Union

Sue Grafton
“Ideas are easy. It's the execution of ideas that really separates the sheep from the goats.”
Sue Grafton

Sara Zarr
“Your greatest creation is your creative life. It's all in your hands.”
Sara Zarr

Jen Sincero
“Let’s review, shall we?     1. List off your old stories that you’ve gotten into the habit of thinking and saying.     2. Journal about the false rewards you get from them.     3. Feel into these false rewards, thank them for their help, and decide to let them go.     4. Take each false reward and write a new, powerful story to replace it with.     5. Repeat this new story, or affirmation, over and over and over until it becomes your truth.     6. Behold your awesome new life.”
Jen Sincero, You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life
