Thank you everyone, for your fabulous responses. I’m thrilled so many of you are excited about doing the 30 day journaling challenge.
Based on feedback, I’ve decided to do this in November. While there are some people doing NaNo or the other Journaling challenge, December with Christmas and end of the year is hectic for most people. If you are unable to participate with us in November, the prompts will still be available, so you can always do the challenge in December or at any other time if you wish.
THE WAY THIS CHALLENGE WORKS:
- I will post a prompt daily on this blog. For those of you who have subscribed to the blog by email, you will get a notification for new post as per usual, except that for this one month, it will be daily.
- Prompts are OPTIONAL. You don’t have to use them, but if you need inspiration then they are there for you.
- THE ONLY RULE is that you need to journal every day. That’s the challenge. You can write as little or as much as you want. I would recommend minimum 1 paragraph, but you can do a sentence if you want. However, you must journal every single day for the whole of November. Draw, doodle, write, paint…..use whatever format and medium you want.
- If you want to share your entries with us, feel free to post them in the comments of each prompt post. This is also optional.
TIPS FOR SUCCESS:
- If you are not used to journaling every day, or have trouble journaling regularly then this may be challenging for you. I recommend carrying your journal with at all times during November. This way, you will be able to use any downtime you have to jot down a few sentences.
- Don’t obsess about topics. If you have something in mind, write about it. Otherwise, just use the prompts. It doesn’t have to be the perfect story, and it doesn’t even have to relate to the prompt. It’s all about what you get inspired to write.
- Have fun! Seriously. That’s the point. Enjoy the challenge….take it seriously enough to be discipline, but have fun with it. Make it your own by doing whatever you want in your journal, and by end of November, you will have some interesting and maybe even awesome stuff to look back on.
Keep us posted with your progress. Even if you don’t want to share your entry, write a comment when you’ve finished your day’s journaling.
