  • Create thought-provoking poems through found poetry
  • Uncover images hidden in your photos

    No-Fear Meaning Making

    What I took away from this book:
    * There's powerful potential in a single sentence
    * A few simple lines can say more than a page full of words
    * Writing in code is deliciously satisfying
    * Sometimes great meaning is found in happy accidents
    * My inner gremlin may not be silenced altogether, but she can be placed outside of my door, under the mat

    Inspiring Ideas

    I was expecting more art than journal; more drawing than writing, but there are some creative ideas.

    Overall, good book.

    I enjoyed the ideas presented very much. My only disappointment was that the formatting of some of the charts did not work well on the Nook.
