About Laurel Nakai
I'm here to create something WITH YOU. A community of artists and fans who are ready to shift into new possibilities.
I have always believed that creating was a spiritual practice. Think about it...you take something from your mind...this weird intangible thing, a rattle of ideas and thoughts spinning around in space...and you wrestle it down onto a piece of paper, or a canvas, or a melody...that's some crazy magic!
What if creating could be just that? Like magic...easy, joyful, fun, and FAST.
In over the last 20 years I've written lots of songs, but the ones that I really love, the ones that seem to have a lasting impact, have come easily and fast.
I didn't know this was unusual, until I started talking to other musicians who said it took them a long time to write a song. I've written songs in less than an HOUR. Is it just a difference in how people work? Maybe...but maybe there's something we can all tap into that will make creating more fun, flowy, and joyful.
In the last two years, I started a few practices that have made it even easier for me to create and I want to share it with YOU. But first, I want to go deeper into what I'm discovering. I want to test it and figure out new things, and I want to share the process with you.
So here is my challenge:
I will write 100 songs in 100 days. 1 song per day.
I'll be blogging and making videos about the process as well as sharing the songs.
We're in this together! Having support from a community will keep me accountable, knowing that you all are watching and waiting for my posts and songs. I also am super excited to share the journey and inspire you to create with more ease and joy.
When YOU invest, it keeps YOU accountable and means that you are investing in yourself and this process. If you want to commit to the challenge and do it with me, investing is a great way to make sure you take it seriously and to DECIDE that you will achieve your goal. Who will you become after writing 100 songs in 100 days? How will your work change? How will YOU change? That's what I'm about to find out, and you can do it with me!
We'll be growing into bigger and better things. As this thing grows, we'll be able to create some amazing stuff. The possibilities are endless, and
Do I have to write songs?
No! That's what I feel called to do, it's where my creativity flows the most easily and joyfully, but if you want to take up the challenge in your own way, please do! You can write a poem, or a page, or draw a picture...whatever your heart calls you to. I fully believe that the principles of creativity that I'm exploring can work with any medium.
When do we start?
March 1- June 8
What happens when it's over?
Good question! (you're so so smart) I'll continue to create videos and resources, and releasing new works, but some of this is still to be figured out. Who knows where we will be after 100 days! Maybe we'll do more lives and content, maybe we'll have a place to share our work, maybe we'll go on tour! The fun thing about this is that it will unfold and lead us to places we couldn't have imagined. Adventure awaits!
