that costume to part with it but I ll put it in a neat and tidy bin on a shelfDay also gets into how the mind tends to work in a state of anxiety She does say anxiety could be The Selected Stories, Vol. 5 useful but I think the dividing difference is that excitement for a project is not the same thing as anxiety disorder I m not a doctor but I think I can speak from my own experience I will die on the hill that writer s block which includes all critical thinking and creative thought endeavors is a real problem The advice you get about taking a walk clearing your head walk away from it and come back do something entirely different and maybe a solution will come that s all true The pressure you put on yourself can lead to anxiety but they isn t necessarily The Anxiety itself Plenty of people thrivender pressure They look forward to it I also work better with a deadline like NaNoWriMo There s something to hold me the creator responsibleAccountability does get a small cameo in the book Day talked about when she joined a group of women in a similar position in the acting world struggling to find the next gig They were holding each other accountable with weekly things to do invite X to lunch to network and that sort of thing If you like in person group accountability go for it I prefer the realm of online which is why Comics Experience worked well for me as I floundered

considerate of switching gendered pronouns She also gender swaps Hamlette in one example I m sure there are things I wouldn t notice but I can at least be honest and say this is a writer who tries She only refers to her significant other as partner She talks about her baby here and there if you re sensitive to discussions on babiesfamilies It snderstandable given her career but still nfortunate that she cares what Joss Whedon thinks about her He should be seeing her as a role model not the other WAY AROUND 60 SECOND VIDEO REVIEW around 60 second video review First of all if you are

at coming Night of the Werewolf (Choose Your Own Nightmare, up with creative ideas and be able to bring them to life you owe it to yourself to read this book Audiobook ReviewOverall 4 starsPerformance 5 starsStoryContent 3 35 starsI have never really read or listened to a self help book before but was intrigued by the blurb and premise Who doesn t want to face their fears andnleash their creativity The book was structured a bit differently than I thought it would be and Embrace Your Weird is of a workbook with interactive components to help guide readers and listeners along For the audiobook there is a companion PDF that includes the various exercises and tasks that the author asks listenersreaders to complete I liked the overall positivity of the book but I enjoyed the author s anecdotes and hilariously relatable personal experiences best The author is clearly a gifted storyteller and writer and though the book wasn t Lay My Burden Down uite for me please note that I only tried a few of the exercises I think many others will find it very helpful and encouraging I voluntarily listened to an audiobook listening copy of this book Many thanks to Librofm and Simon Schuster Audio If misfits had a monarchy Felicia Day would be oureenLife is so much easier when we conform and stay silent right Easier but one of the greatest disservices we can do to ourselves Aside from wearing high wasted pants This is not your Mom s pop psychology self help mass market motivational see I m OK You re OK circa 1967 This is a workable compendium of thought provoking tasks and projects designed to help you identify and Vérité (Love at Center Court, uantify your creative self Anxiety means we care We are sensitive people who are full of feeling This is an amazing attribute The opposite of this is anncaring insensitive person who doesn t feel anything A person like that would never delight in sketching lemurs or learning how to whittle their own spoons Be GLAD not to be that douche nozzle Expect humor expect wit expect seful and insightful activities and assignments expect obscure references ie chibi She Ra Mindy Kaling expect inspirational impetus and you will NOT be disappointed Two and a half starsI decided to listen to this book on a whim I liked the cover and I m plenty weird so why not I had no idea that Felicia Day is an actress famous gamer and creator of some website that people much younger than I liked a whole lotMs Day reads the audiobook and the first thing I noticed was that she is perky Very perky Capital P Perky Ten shots of espresso perky During the course of the book Ms Day suggests that We Should All Refrain From Negatively Commenting should all refrain from negatively commenting others creative endeavors In that spirit I will simply say that there is a level of perk that I can tolerate and that is a level far below Ms Day s pinnacle of perk I give her points for her nerditude she makes reference to both Dr Who and Star Trek and I forgive her for never having seen Battlestar Galactica as I assume she would forgive me for having zero interest in gamingI was puzzled when would forgive me for having zero interest in gamingI was puzzled when book drifted into career counseling and dismayed when she suggested networking as an effective way to nurture creativity Introverts want to be creative too and we want to do it on our own terms preferably alone in our jammies with a cat purring nearby No human contact necessary kthxbyeYou will like this book best if you are either young and perky or you liked the author s work in other creative arenas How I read this Free audiobook copy received through Librofm DNF roughly 50%Okay let s face it I have been trying to finish this book since like last October I need to face p to the fact that it s going into the DNF pileFirst of all there was nothing wrong with this book at all I think it s just not for me or at least not for me in my current stage in life It is a Daniels Pet uirky book and the author who narrates it herself is truly fun to listen to A very cheering bubbly personality who isite odd but still somehow impossibly easy to relate toAnyway the book is full of all sorts of tasks and exercises but the full of all sorts of tasks and exercises but the with me was I guess that I was too lazy to do those tasks and exercises xD I am sure they would have been beneficial So really if you are in a creative rut and adore Losing Control uirky narrative you ll LOVE this book I am keeping my copy for sure and hopefully I ll return to it someday with the intention to finish it But that day is not today I thank the publisher and librofm for giving me a free copy of the audiobook in exchange to my honest review This has not affected my opinionBook Blog Bookstagram Bookish Twitter This book is chock full of exercises to help the readernderstand their true selves and increase their creativity I didn t actually do the exercises in this book I love Felicia Day and gave her previous book 5 stars so I picked this Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep (light novel) up I do think this is well written and would be helpful for people trying to create things.
