February Writing Prompts

February Writing Prompts

For a year or so I have been reading the book editor Bryson’s blog ‘The Habit of Being‘. This is a lovely personal blog celebrating daily moments and interesting reads. Through her newsletter she has offered encouragement and tips for writers including monthly journal prompts.

I’ve found the words and short phrases inspiring because sometimes it just takes an unusual or evocative idea to help see things from a different perspective.

She has recently made some changes to her online presence, and, sadly, she is no longer offering the monthly prompt list. So I decided to create one of my own. A word or phrase for each day of the month gathered together. (I nearly lost it a few times in the two hours it took me to figure out how to turn a word document into an image that I could post on a blog not to mention turn a list into two columns – but phew – Β I got there in the end! )

I’m posting it here in case anyone else would like to use it to spark off their own writing session. So do save or print it if you feel it could be useful to you.

If all goes well, I’ll post a new list each month.

    1. I think, for personal reasons according to the last newsletter, she’s changed her online persona to Bryson. The Internet can be a tricky place sometimes 😦


  1. Ooo, I like the look of this! Only today I was thinking that it’s been a while since I wrote anything other than a blog post or journal whingeing. This is just what I need for little daily creative launches into the unknown – brilliant!

    1. Oh, I do enjoy a good whinge from time to time.
      I love that – daily creative launches into the unknown – I have a picture in my mind now, of you in a little spaceship about to take off. In a knitted spaceship maybe? πŸ™‚

      1. Don’t go giving me ideas! It’s hard enough to get the washing up done as it is, although I’d love to see my family’s reaction to there being no dinner because Mummy’s been busy knitting a space ship. πŸ™‚


  2. I love that you made your own list for the month, Kim! I had been considering going back to using the daily prompts when I finished the challenges I’m doing for the Sandbox Writing Challenge. I remember, I actually did enjoy and was far more active in blogging while taking Blogging 101, which led to Writing 101, which then led to Story-A-Day.

    If I want to put something I’ve written into a jpeg format, I just use the “print screen” option on my keyboard. Then I paste it into the PAINT program that comes with my computer, or I use the ancient Paint Shop Pro program I still have. Save as jpg and then I can use it in a post.
