Garden Journal Prompts

Dear Fellow Journalers,

For those of you who need a written incentive to write today, here are a few prompts about gardening.


  1. You can grow the garden of your choice without money or time as a hindrance. What do you grow and why? How do you keep out the rabbits?
     2.  Write about the scents of night flowers.
     3.  Have you ever been alone in a garden?
     4.  What are your thoughts when you turn soil or pull weeds?
     5.  Our gardens reflect who we are, what we need and what we are like. “How does your garden grow?”
     6.  Write about your favorite garden.

Reading Prompts

Dear Fellow Journalers,

The following are some prompts that you can use in your Reading Journal to make the entries more informative:

  1. What is your favorite (or a few of your favorite) books and why? How many times have you read it and how does it make you feel when you flip through the pages? What would you tell someone when you’re recommending this book to them?
  2. What is your least favorite book? Why are you so turned off by it? Now imagine that you are forced to watch a movie version of the book. Describe your experience.
  3. A friend has recommended that you read a book that he says is “completely amazing!” The book is anything but. What do you tell your friend and does this experience change your opinion about his tastes?
  4. You have been transported into one of your favorite books as a character of your choosing. Who are you and what happens to you during your adventures? Describe in extreme detail.
  5. What is your favorite place to read? Why is it the perfect spot?
  6. You are walking down the road and you come across a group of kids that are burning books. What do you do next?
‘Til next time,

Creativity Prompts

Dear Fellow Journalers,

It’s been awhile since I shared some journal prompts with you so here goes!

Grab your journal

Get a pen/pencil

Get a timer and set it for 3 minutes

     On your mark, get set, write!

     1. What made you feel good this week?

     2. If you could have dinner with anyone currently alive, who would you invite?

     3. How much old baggage are  you carrying around? What can you give back, give away or sell today?

and finally, (this one is deep- there always has to be one right?)

     4. If you were handed a sealed envelope with the date, time and cause of your death inside, would you open it – even if there was nothing you could do to change your fate?

‘Til next time,


P.S. I welcome your thoughts.


Dear Fellow Journalers,

The following 3 quotes are inspirational:

” A word has power in and of itself. It comes from nothing into sound and meaning. It gives origin to all things.”

N. Scott Momeday

” No thief, however skillful can rob one of knowledge, and that is why knowledge is the best and safest treasure to acquire.”

L. Frank Baum

” I am no bird, and no net ensares me. I am a free human being with an independent will.”

Charlotte Bronte
