Join us in the Lab at 10 AM PT/1 PM ET today!
We're gonna try this out
Many of you have been asking about creativity workshops. We will begin another 12 week Artist’s Way Course every Tuesday starting in January. But until then, we will meet every Saturday in December from 10 AM PT/1 PM ET until 11 AM PT/2 PM ET for an hour of uninterrupted creativity.
What is that, you may be wondering? Well, in order to create anything—a song, a play, a painting, a well-knit scarf, a new recipe you’ve been wanting to try but you’re too intimidated to follow through on—you need to actually carve out space to do it. The only way I was able to write a whole book was to sit down and type out 500 words a day, five days a week, for nine months, to get a (not very good!) first draft. Getting the icky first draft of anything done is the worst and hardest and most necessary part of any creative endeavor. So I’m hoping this weekly hour of (group supported!) focused work will help creatively jumpstart as many people as possible, myself included.
Consider this like an exercise class but for whatever you want to work on. I don’t care if you are simply going to sit there and start jotting things down you might like to do…a cooking class you want to take, a museum exhibit you need to buy tickets for… Maybe you just want to sit and journal. Come as you are. Since we’ll all be on mute, you could even just sit listen to a whole album of music uninterrupted without looking at your phone and let it wash over you. This kind of focused attention on art might actually improve your mental and spiritual well-being for the whole weekend. So let’s try it!
