Writing prompts offer a structure and starting point for your journaling. They help you to access your creative side, release emotions, and gain insight into your life and experiences. Prompts can also be used as a way to reflect on your day or week.

Why You Should Use Prompts

Writing prompts can be extremely helpful when you’re feeling stuck or uninspired. Prompts can help you come up with new ideas and help you see things from a different perspective. Using prompts can also help you improve your writing skills by giving you a specific goal to focus on.

A prompt is simply a topic or question to get you started. Once you have something to write about, it’s easier to keep going. Journaling can be a great way to process your thoughts and feelings, and it can also be therapeutic.
