When I was earning a BFA, I had a painting professor who forced me to severely limit my color palate. I grumbled about it at the time, but I found that the creation of forced guidelines freed me and taught me the significance of self-imposed rules.Fast forward some years, and I have just completed day 37 of my year-long project using 365: A Daily Creativity Journal. So far this process has given me, through structure, a similar, freeing experience.Scalin's process, as laid out in his book, has made me accountable for daily, completed creative production and has forced me to let go by midnight. I cannot put it off, and I cannot over analyze my work or give up on it.I have been forced to work quickly and to accept my work for what it is. The creation of a blog and being a member of the 365 online community created by Scalin have reinforced this. The result has been increased productivity, yes, but more importantly, a new set of eyes for my own work.The book gives examples of diverse daily projects as inspiration and ideas for daily projects, so one never feels stranded without an idea. However, the book is not imposing, and people can use it in different ways: as a journal, as a place to keep notes, as daily inspiration, or as a jolt of inspiration when it is needed.The book's suggestions are unconventional and varied. Some are more challenging while some are gentle prods. Nothing requires expensive materials or equipment. Every suggestion is accessible and open-ended, so there are myriad approaches to each one. Scalin approaches projects as puzzles and explorations and not as controlled activities or rigid guidelines.Does a daily project seem too daunting?
