My good friend Adam over at Roof Beam Reader has been on a mission to journal for 100 days in a row. Over a week ago I Tweeted that I wanted to participate and make reflective writing more of a daily part of my life and then didn’t do a durn thing about it. I’ve been waylaid by a sore throat virus that has left me pretty tired and not feeling like writing, but today I’m feeling better and I plan to begin.
One of the things I did while I was laid up in bed with the sniffles and a sore throat was to think of some writing prompts. Often when I journal I spend time writing an update on my life in general or ranting or making lists. All of this is fine for journaling, but I wanted to practice with some other types of writing and try to be more inward facing as opposed to “omg look at all the life stuff happening.” I gathered many of these prompts from Pinterest and then was inspired to create a few of my own.
Much like Adam, I plan on doing periodic check-ins and charting my progress on social media (IG, Twitter) with the hashtag #100daysjournal. My start date is today, 3/13/2019, and my end date will be 6/21/2019. Let’s hope this challenge will allow me to make reflective writing more of a habit and part of my daily routine.
