Itʻs my last day of hosting the 100DOS IG page!

I want to send a big mahalo to @rigelthurston Thank you for the opportunity to host this IG page and most especially for creating an uplifting environment for songwriters from all skills levels, from all over world. On my final day, I wanted to share a big project Iʻve been working on, @thepeekabows.

The Peek-a-Bows is a musical entertainment group for young children, and we received a grant last year to create a music album plus an animated mini-series. We’ve created three episodes that include Hawaiian culture, interviews with experts, original music, plus animated music videos. It is set to launch at the end of this month and we canʻt hardly wait! The mini-series will be available to stream for free, and our theme song has been free to download on our website. On top of that, we were invited to open for @caffestival and their CAFF FOR KIDS day, which is tah-day! Itʻs been and still is a fun ride, on the rainbow!

Iʻd also like to tag @kanoa. Heʻs been rocking Maui for years, and heʻs definitely one to look out for.

With that, I hope you enjoy the rest of this beautiful Sunday. You can find me at @geri_productions. I look forward to connecting with you and cheering you on as well. Me ke aloha...Geri

I'll be honest. As a fan of Abbie Emmon's YouTube Channel, I put off reading her debut novel out of fear.


I really like her content and I find her way of teaching about writing very unique and helpful and I was worried if I didn't like her book I wouldn't be able to feel as confident in her content.
Turns out that was all a waste. I loved her novel! It's a fantastic example of all of the things Abbie brings up when she wants to help other writers "make their story matter".
I get a bit nitpicky in this video and I point out somethings that maybe could have been improved if she was writing specifically for people who want to learn about writing from her book. As a reader, I had no issues, I loved reading every minute through the story. Once I finished and took a step back to figure out what I could learn from the book I found some small details that maybe could have been improved.

Happy Tuesday! How’s your week going so far?

Just started to chart out a few new songs I wrote.

I am currently working on a performance project with local non-profit Maui Arts and Cultural Center. I am co-creator of a musical and educational group for kids. Our group, The Peek-a-Bows, were asked to film two, ten-minute shows that could be shared with young children around Maui and available throughout the nation. We were recently asked again to film a new ten-minute episode. 🌈 You can find the link via our page @thepeekabows.

Aloha 🤙 I hope you had a beautiful weekend. My name is Geri and I am honored to be taking over the 100 DOS IG page for the next week!

I am extremely grateful for this safe, supportive, and active community.

And so it begins…duh, duh, DUH.

My full name is Gerilyn Snow Emata and I was born in San Jose, California. I have been living in Maui, Hawai’i since the age of seven. I am engaged to my amazing other half and we have three lil girls, two dogs, and a turtle.

I come from a very musical family, professionals in the industry, so music is definitely in the DNA. Although my dad is a pianist, I took a liking to singing in my youth. I consider myself introverted, however, so now I focus my energy more on songwriting. My favorite part of songwriting is creating melodies.

I am a small business owner and a co-owner of another company as well (more details to come about these). So besides these, a family, and a new job, I try to fit in songwriting when I can.

You can find my personal IG page here @geri_productions

Heya, what’s for dinner?

Abbie Emmons is a breath of fresh air!

An incredibly talented author, her debut novel, 100 Days of Sunlight, is a unique page-turner that takes readers on a journey to learn what it means to be live without limitations. Full of hope, love, and perseverance, the story shines as bright as its cover. Encompassing what it means to be alive and whole, this novel will knock the socks off your feet (some pun intended) and sweep you into a world where giving up is not an option.

Why You Should Read 100DOS Pt3


Reminder to go check out 100 Days of Sunlight (100DOS) by the wonderful and incredibly talented Abbie Emmons @abbieeofficial @makeyourstorymatter , her book is amazing!

I do not own any of these pictures nor this music.

This song is Get Up by Shinedown which I found from the official 100DOS Playlist Abbie made.

The photos are also from the pinterest boards Abbie created for 100DOS.

If need be I will have to remove the music and replace it. Hopefully not but we'll see.

Do you like this? Let me know if I should do more and for what book(s). Comment your favorite books you want me to do it for.

QOTD: Which of your characters from your current WIP do you think would sing best?

AOTD: Kamley (Kam). To be fair this is biased because like she is a singer. Like she sings and performs and stuff. She can play any instrument and has a gorgeous voice. She does covers and originals that I am pos consider writing myself. Let me know what you think. Also she just has this happy,, calm energy, I don't really know how to explain it. Its her happy place that helps her forget everything else going on. But other than her in her WIP, I would say Mahlik. He does theatre so maybe a possible connection, I don't know. In my other one Desa, but also all of them? Idk.

QOTD: Which of your characters from your current WIP are you most like or relate to most?

AOTD: I have 2 I'm currently working on so for the adopted one Nakhala because we are both quiet people depending on who we are around, we have a few friends not a whole lot, we try hard in school, we both love to read and write, we both can be sassy and a bit stubborn but also kind and funny. But this is as I get to know my characters and I dont know them too well just yet so it is stc but I feel like there will be a bit of me in each character. I feel like that is writing. You put a piece of yourself in each character. For my fencing and royalty story I would relate to Desa (Aradesa) my mc. She and I both love to read, like both 'feminine' hobbies and 'masculine hobbies, though she likes/wears
makeup and I don't like makeup. Also is a sarcastic, sassy, funny, nice person which I kind of dort of am. At least to me.

QOTD: If your best friend was a character in one of your WIPs or favorite books, what would they be like?
AOTD: This came to mind because I actually plan on asking my best friend if I can put her in one of my WIPs. Not her real name but... a character based off her. She is one of the kindest people I know and I love her. She is 15 as well,, born on April 22, earth day, so older than me. She is like a sister to me. Though I already have 2 but you know what I mean. Look for a possible upcoming post about her character and I will tell you more about her and how we met, etc.

Happy book birthday to @abbieeofficial @makeyourstorymatter for 100 Days Of Sunlight!



You can check out the review I did for this amazing book.

What can I say about this book?

It's happiness, honestly, in it's true and pure form. It's a smile and a laugh, sunlight, yellow flowers, polaroids, an assortment of flowers you can smell when you walk into the room, notebooks, chocolate, a yellow ukulele, and the most amazing waffles under the sun.

It's the melody of birds, shades in the summer, the whispers of a song, and beautiful poetry.

It's smelling, seeing, tasting, feeling, hearing.

It's smelling yellow roses in the morning and knowing that everything would be okay today. No matter what. Cause you know that special someone who you can't seem to take your mind off of, couldn't take their mind off of you either. They left them there, just to make you smile. Cause they know they're your favorite, and they know it would make you light up inside and giddy, and you would be happy. Your nose would crinkle, laughing, sitting on your bed, or your chair, smelling the flowers, with the most beautiful smile etched on your face. And making you the happiest person in the world is their life's mission.

It's seeing sunlight pouring through your open windows, dancing in it's glow, basking in it. It illuminates you, it's your spotlight on the stage of life. It burns but it doesn't hurt. It burns tenderly, lovingly, gently. It's telling a story, singing a song, making a memory. It's a reminder of everything good in life. To wake up every morning and be able to see such beauty.

It's tasting the best waffles danced upon by the sun, just about the closest thing to perfect. They're soft and fluffy and they taste like happiness and sunshine.

It's feeling the keys beneath your hands, the paper beneath your pen, and knowing you have the power to change lives with just one movement.

It's hearing the melody of a voice, of a song, a ukulele, of poetry. The different voices, and the different stories.

It's love. It's life. It's everything. It's not only a story, it's a message, that life is going to knock you down.

Hard.

But you can get back up.

And you will.

#100daysofsketching day 67

Well this handle is pretty much all about wacky #poses at this point🤓.



Tho i must say #100dos has helped me a lot in this area, something i always wanted to be good at, poses! thanks to this challenge, i can compose decent poses without depending on #references much(i do use pose references time to time). This is a lot of fun, i think i'll continue drawing #oc characters and #fanarts for a while. Tho i definitely i wanna compose more complicated pieces, but hey, that comes later😗

Another 100 days of songwriting down! I’m learning to appreciate that even the small ways I show up for my songwriting practice adds up and leads to bigger efforts.

I was able to get far more vulnerable and experiential this time around. So glad to have gotten some great collaborations in too. I can’t wait to record some more and finalize some of these pieces to share with y’all!

I’ve loved seeing other artists in the 100 days community share their set ups and instruments.


I don’t really have one. Or rather, it’s pending.
I’ve recently moved to Aotearoa (New Zealand) from London and most of the goods are in a ship somewhere a week or 2 from landing in my hands. I miss them.
But, I do have a pretty delicious temporary situation. These images very accurately capture how I feel about them.
Let me introduce you to my Casio collection. These babies are from the 80’s (not really babies are they!). Hence the vintage vibe. I’m also from the 80’s. So we understand each other. The MT-70 is filled with lush tones and cool organ sounds and has enough keys for me to play decent chord progressions. While the SK-5 is one of the first sampling keyboards produced. There’s a little mic where you can sample anything you like and that gets mapped across the keys. It’s FUN AS HECK. I’m obsessed. I may even give you a little demo before the week is up!
Third is my Aston Spirit. It’s a beautiful condenser mic. It captures a lot of character (on other words, it’s very unforgiving). It’s a lovely piece of equipment for you record on.
Not pictured is the loopy app on my iPhone. It’s COOOOOOL. if you’re into loops, go get it! It’s affordable and so simple to use. You can import samples and create all sorts of cool stuff. I’ll throw a demo in the stories tomorrow (when I say tomorrow, I mean my tomorrow).

Hey, everyone!

What's the most disappointing book you've read so far this year?

I try not to get too excited over a book because I don't want to have high expectations since they probably won't be met. But still, there are some books that really let me down. 100 Days of Sunlight, a book I read a few days ago, is definitely one of those books. I won't get into it here, but I did write a very long rant review about this on my Goodreads. Overall, though, I just had too many issues with it to enjoy it. I gave this 2/5 stars.

But actually, I think the most disappointing book I've read so far this year has been Blood of Olympus, the last book in the Heroes of Olympus series. That book's ending...just...yeah.

Kia ora, let me take a second to introduce myself…

I’m Marena ( @therealmarena ) - singer, songwriter, music maker, instrument player, poet, visual artist and life coach in training. I like to find where these paths meet and crossover and explore what’s possible in the in between spaces.
I’ve been making noise since day 1 and hanging out on the 100 days platform since just before Covid hit the globe. So this week I’ll be right here dishing out the dirt on my journey with this community and all my creative tings.
If you’re up for it, maybe we can make something together (yes you, in the back, saying to yourself “oh she doesn’t mean me”. I mean YOU!). I truly believe making art is for every human. I safe you to prove me wrong 🙃
Tune in. Hang out. 🤞🤟🤘
