I like to come up with prompts  that I can use for inspiration when journaling or considering a story or poem. You can use these prompts one day at a time or print them out, cut them out, and place in a jar, then pull one random prompt per day. I use the random method with students. On journal day, they always moan, “I don’t know what to write about!” They learn quickly my answer, “Pull a writing prompt from the Journal Jar.” 🙂
