These prompt list writing ideas are for kids by kids. And, so are the introductions. I hope you get as much joy from these words and ideas as I did. Way to go, Amber and Anika. You both did a wonderful job!
Sincerely, Journal Buddies Jill.
Hi Jill, Here are some prompts for practice and creative journaling to write about including stories! I hope you like them. Write on!
Hi, my name is Anika. My mom’s friend Jill asked if I would be willing to write an intro for this group of writing prompts that my sister and I contributed to. Cool, huh?
If you’re a kid like me and you love writing, then this prompt list is for you! If you’re older and like typing, this list is for you, too.
Writing to me is like when I draw, I can create something cool. I can write a story that goes with a drawing. There are so many possibilities when you can express what you want on paper. You are able to share it or keep it to yourself.
Some things that I like to write about are random things that pop up in my mind like fruits and animals mashed together, where anything is possible! If you think of something, believe that you can create it and it’ll be yours.
