Cassandra asks, “Where can I get some good journaling prompts?” Co-host Jayde Gilmore and I spread out a few ideas, but they all add up to exactly what Dorothy said after returning from the Land of Oz, “If I ever go looking for my heart’s desire again, I won’t go any further than my own backyard!”
There are both advantages and disadvantages of using journal prompts. And also, some creative ways to be sure you NEVER run out of juicy journaling prompts that are specific to you and your life.
To be sure, random writing prompts can be found abundantly, but there are ways to find and collect ones that are relevant, and inspire your best writing.
If you are looking for a month-long series of powerful writing prompts to help commemorate a transition or milestone (such as a new job, a birthday, graduation, or anniversary) here’s a journaling kit for you! Jayde Gilmore is one of ten amazing featured sponsors.
