Praise For Art Before Breakfast: A Zillion Ways to be More Creative No Matter How Busy You Are

"For all who want to develop their creativity but just can never seem to find the time, this guide is here to help. Written in an engaging, encouraging voice, the book supplies project ideas that take no more than a quarter hour a day to execute. The author suggests that the reader grab five, ten, or 15 minutes in the morning to draw and that they do this every day until it becomes an ingrained habit. Full of humor and empathy, the book offers advice about just how to carve out that precious time and how to banish self-doubt that can undermine one's best intentions." - Library Journal
