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.
Does your mind wander? Are you are silently focused on a daydream? Did some offer “A penny for your thoughts?”
I never got a penny for sharing my thoughts, but it has always been well worth my effort to journal them. Best-laid plans and lousy ideas are hatched from quiet thoughts. I let them ramble in my journal. Many of the sentences don’t go together, but it does not matter. No one but me has to understand them. Sometimes I find solutions to problems and answers to questions. Often though, I feel relief and satisfaction that it is written down—well worth a penny of time.
Let’s explore those daydreamy thoughts.
Until tomorrow, Everyone.
