Oh, how time flies…summer is gone and fall is upon us. With the bold colors, fun holidays, and excitement of back to school, fall is the perfect time of year to draw inspiration in your writing. Being outdoors and savoring nature are sure to get your creative juices flowing!
In these prompts, you’re encouraged immerse yourself in the season by taking notice of your surroundings and all of the exciting changes. You can still fire up your writing if you’re not an autumn fan by comparing and contrasting fall with your favorite season. You’re sure to come to appreciate aspects of the season that you had previously overlooked!
Take your writing outside with one or all of these exciting journal topics and explore the wonders of the change of seasons!
Three Fall Writing Ideas
Fall Journaling Topic # 1:
What are your favorite things about autumn? Write about them in detail. Some of my favorite things about fall are the leaves, the cool evenings, pumpkins, and gourds.
If you don’t like autumn, write about that. Describe what it is that you don’t like, how fall makes you feel, and what your favorite season is and why.
Topic # 2:
Spend some time outside in nature. Look around and notice the unique aspects about fall that surround you. You may notice an abundance of acorns and seeds, a leaf floating through the air, a squirrel busily preparing for winter, or a flower displaying its final blooms for the year.
Record your observations in your journal. Write or draw about your observations, just let your mind open and document what flows through from your mind to your hand. Breath easily and enjoy the writing process.
Topic # 3:
Choose one item or subject from your observations as outlined in #1 and #2. Let the item tell you a story. What is its purpose? How is it unique? What makes it so wonderful, neat, or special? Does it have any fears, concerns, or worries? Does it have any advice or wisdom to share with you? How can it add value to your life? What would this world be like without it?
These are just a few of the questions your item may be able to answer for you. Keep an open mind and really let your chosen subject speak to you — you might just be surprised by what it has to say and what it’ll teach you!
I hope you enjoyed these writing ideas, but more so I hope you use and enjoy them. Happy fall to you and happy journaling, too.
Until next time, write on…
