Writing prompts for #blogjune
I decided to participate in the #blogjune - blog every day in June – ‘event’ run by Libraries Interact because I wanted to practise being committed. I don’t know if I can call myself passionate about writing or blogging. I don’t sit in my study and go OMG I’M SO IN LOVE WITH THIS <3. And more than being passionate, I feel it’s important to be committed so when a passion does come up, you have the minerals to see it through.
But it’s challenging. Some nights so far, I just want to play games until the football starts, then watch the football, then go to sleep. But no – I have to upload a photo of the day to my 365 Project on Facebook, then write something here that hopefully has a bit of substance and isn’t just noise, and then write an iDoneThis so in a few months time I’ll have a pretty infographic to look at - and then I can switch my brain off. Actually, this I can manage okay – the hardest part is thinking of what to write that isn’t dreck.
So for future uninspired Sandy and any other stuck people on #blogjune, here are some writing prompts:
- What meals and snacks did you eat today? If you like, rate each according to healthiness, enjoyment and effort.
- Share a joke – bad dad jokes are okay too – we’re all adults here.
- When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up, and how much of that factors into your life now?
- Pick an object around you right now and share what it looks like, what it’s for, where you got it from and what it means to you.
- Looking at multiple intelligence theory, where do you think you’re most intelligent? Which intelligences do you enjoy exercising the most?
- What social networks are you active in – what do you use them for? What do you think they do right or could do better?
- What’s the most difficult thing you had to do today, and how did you do it?
- Tell us about one of your hobbies – how did you get into it, how often do you get to do it, what are you most proud of with it?
- What is one piece of advice you would give to your younger self?
- Share some song lyrics that seem particularly poignant and have stuck with you.
- What are you listening to, reading, watching – consuming – right now? (Maybe not right right now; you know what I mean.)
- What’s one of the nicest things anyone has said to you?
- Learn about an animal today and write a short profile of it in your own words.
- Share a photo from the past (recent or distant, but at least more than a couple weeks old) and tell us a bit about it.
- Tell us about something ‘kids today’ do better than you, and something you do better than they.
- Who is a fictional character you identify with and why?
- Tell us about one of the ‘happy places’ in your head. :)
