Writing Prompt Ideas– We all experience writer’s block at times and can use some help jump starting our writing, be it in our journal or elsewhere, and prompts can help overcome this problem.
Journaling is a great way to refine your writing skills and to express your deepest thoughts and feelings. You can keep your writings private if you prefer, or you can share your journal entries with others. If this idea excites you, I suggest that you make an online journal. They are free and very fun!
Whether you decide to write in a printed and bound journal and keep your writing private or to create an online journal, it is your choice. However you go about it… just get to writing on a daily basis. You’ll be glad you did!
