Journal Prompts – Week Four

We’ve made it to the fourth week of the year! Let’s continue to do the things we love, and work on using our voices through our writing, speaking, art, and how we show up in this world.

As promised, here are your weekly journaling prompts. When I do the prompts myself before sharing them with you, I set a timer for 15 minutes and see what comes out in my journal. There are no rules around how you use them, but this is a good way to begin if you are new to using prompts.

I enjoy reading what comes up for you as you respond to them, so feel free to tag me on social or backlink here on the blog if you write or record a response. I’ve also enjoyed seeing the responses those of you who journal them in handwriting have sent to me via email. It’s exciting for me to see that these little ideas in my brain are fun and helpful for you as well.

Under each of the graphics, you will find the prompts in typed out so you can see them clearly if the font is too small in the picture or if you want to copy and paste them for your response. I hope this helps make the prompts accessible to as many of you as possible.

Creative Writing Prompts

Creative Writing Prompt 1

Picture of mystical forest at night.

The prompt says: There are only two tribes remaining on earth and neither knows of the other. One person from each tribe is walking in the woods one morning and sees the other. What happens?

Creative Writing Prompt 2

A picture of a man holding a ball with a heart in the middle. The ball is clear, like glass. 

The prompt is: While meditating one morning, a person receives the answers to every question ever asked or thought of. How do they use this power and how does it affect humanity?

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. It will be slow throughout January due to my routine in January but come February I have some fun things planned!

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 month to read a post or two.

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

    • Hi Zelda, to ensure Per Gunnar receives the attribution, you’d have to use the link to Instagram. He should get credit for his artwork. The others have my logo on them so they give the attribution back to me for putting the prompt together and are photos from people who don’t require attribution, as it’s stock photography. But it can’t be used in pieces (legalese) since the license to use it belongs to me. I hope that makes sense.
