365 Journal Writing Ideas
A year of daily journal writing prompts, questions and actions
to fill your journal with memories, self-reflection,
creativity and direction.
- + Is there a collection of blank journals building up on your bookshelf because you are scared of ruining them?
- + Do you have a desire to create a record of your life, to fill a journal or diary with memories, your inner most feelings, ideas, creativity and ambitions?
- + Have you googled ‘how to journal?’ or ‘how to write a diary?’ but still don’t know where to start?
- + Does it feel like the intimidating blank journal page is saying “Really? You think you are good enough to write on me do you?”
- + Have you started a journal before but stopped after only a few entries because you found it repetitive and boring writing about what you had for breakfast, again?
- + Maybe you found it too intense, demanding and time consuming?
- + Or perhaps you just don’t feel as if you have anything interesting to write about?
I have been there. I used to buy journals only to open them and then hover my pen over the blank page scared to touch down incase I ruined it with my dull scribbles and random ramblings. Instead of writing I would close the journal, put it on a shelf and tell myself “I will keep it so one day I could start journaling properly.”
I was frozen by thoughts like, “Who am I to write about my life and ideas? Shouldn’t journaling only be practiced by those who will write perfect, meaningful, profound, grammatically correct, gives you goosebumps and brings a tear to the eye type of world changing thoughts? Surely journal writing is only for people who have incredibly interesting and fabulous 5 star lives that can also make their journals look so effortlessly beautiful that they are Pinterest and Instagram ready?”
Does any of this sound familiar? If your inner perfectionist throws similar (utter nonsense) excuses at you, I wrote this book for you. My intention for 365 Journal Writing Ideas is to help you put pen to paper and start enjoying the benefits of keeping a regular journal writing practice without making it complicated or time consuming.
Inside you will find:
