Welcome to my 2020 Blogging A-Z April Challenge. Each day, I will post a brief Journal On! Daily Writers’ Workshops lesson and prompt. Teachers, parents, and students may use the material to encourage daily writing practice, spark insight, and embrace mindful reflection.
We are halfway through our Journal On! Daily Writers’ Workshop challenge. This is an excellent time to evaluate your journaling progress. I have questions for you. Do you feel that you are building a steady journaling habit? Are you looking forward to the prompts? Have you made up your own prompts? If you are finding yourself struggling, find a new place, and/or a different time of day to write. A change of scenery may give you that fresh new start.
Today we are going to take a look back at our journals. It is a good way to remember what you wrote, how you were feeling at the time, and compare it to how you are doing today. Remember, there is no right or wrong to journaling. By looking back at your writing, you may see that the daily commitment is getting easier. You may be surprised to see that your journaling is opening up a heartfelt way to communicate.
Until tomorrow, Everyone.
