September Journal Prompts

Dear Fellow Journalers,

September always signifies the end of summer and  beginning of autumn. The end of blissful summer beach days, cool evening breeze drifting by and family barbecues. The beginning of school days, New things to learn, crisp fall days and crunchy colorful leaves on the ground.

So it’s no wonder, that this month, so full of contradictions, should beg us journalists to expand our world of writing.

Rachael Wolchin wrote “Be mindful when it comes to your words. A string of some that don’t mean much to you may stick with someone for a lifetime.”

September prompts are as follows:

  • What do you want to do this month?What are you looking forward to?
  • What did you watch on TV this week?Any new shows that caught your attention?
  • Write 3 things that you’re grateful for today.
  • What did you learn today?
  • Did you share something with someone today?
  • What happened to your goals for this month?

July Monthly Journal Prompts

Dear Fellow Journalers,

July is a mixed bag for this writer. It begins with the 4th of July. It’s typically  travel month and it has a Christmas in July theme too. So here are a few prompts that I hope cover all of the above:

  • What does the 4th of July mean to you? Do you feel a strong pull of patriotism or are you just happy to be with friends or family at a barbecue?
  • Imagine that you woke up this morning on July 4th, 1776. How do you insert yourself on this historic day?
  • Are you an adventurer? Write about a solo trip to another country. Where would you go and what would you do?
  • You want to write a travel journal. How would you organize it?
  • Imagine that you are one of Santa’s elves. Describe a typical day.
  • What if you could write the lyrics of “The 12 Days of Christmas” what would be the new words?
