Journal Prompts – Week Two

We made it to week two of 2022. How has it been for you? I have had a wonderful week with eye-opening conversations and events, joy-filled moments, and a ton of organization and preparation for this year! There have been moments of complete exhaustion because of all the things going on in my mind, but I’ve embraced that as part of my personality, so I am learning to make idea lists and move on until I am ready to explore new ideas and activities.

As promised, each Sunday I will post prompts for journaling. They will be a mix of creative, reflective, and other prompts based upon what’s going on in my head for the week. Some weeks, they will turn into posts in the future, other times they are just things that floated through my mind that I journaled about or thought would be fun to write about so I am sharing them.

Pick a prompt and write until you feel done, or set a timer for 15 minutes and see what comes out. Remember to tag me when you’re done or backlink to this blog so I can stop by and read what you posted!

For those who are visually impaired, scroll past the pictures for the section with the prompts written out. I hope this helps you participate as well!

Every conversation and inner thought you had yesterday is played for the whole world to hear. Write out how you feel when you hear it played back and note who you'll have to apologize to.
Write a poem about what is happening in the photo. Make it personal.

The event that takes you from despair to praise happens this year. Write about it.

The photo has a heart inside of a birdcage. The door is closed but a little off-center. The heart is made from twine.

Let’s Connect on Social!

Follow me on Instagram for additional insight on writing, marketing, discovering your voice, and life, as well as writing and poetry, events, and more. You’ll also catch the occasional behind-the-scenes look into the life that supports me in showing up for you the way I do.

If you read this far, be sure to drop your blog link in the comments below. While I can see all of you who are on WordPress who I’ve subscribed to, there is no way to see everyone who has stopped by or subscribed to me in a way that I can click on their links and visit their pages as well. I have to go post by post. Help me honor my time by dropping your blog link in the comments – or drop a link to your favorite post from it – and I will stop by during the week to read a post or two.

Let’s truly engage this year as we grow together in our writing!
