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 – 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.
