Inspired by his internationally beloved picture book The Dot, New YorkTimes bestselling and award-winning Peter H. Reynolds’s Start with a Dot: A Journal for Making Your Mark is an encouraging guided journal that will help you tap into your creativity.
If you can make a dot, then you’re ready to be taken on a creative journey. Over the next several pages, you’re encouraged to take pleasure in making iterations of the dot: big dots, little dots, colorful dots, orderly dots, and scattered dots. Then you’ll move on to other mark-making activities, conquering perfectionism, loosening up, and letting your creativity flow. Throughout, Reynolds offers exercises that draw a connection between mindfulness and leaving your mark on the page.
Whether you’re a timid beginner or a seasoned artist who needs a creative jolt to keep fresh and recharge, this journal is for you.
