Writing Wednesday: Daily Journaling Prompts for July

Post Comment


Continuing our series on daily journaling prompts, here is a list of journaling topics for every day in July! This gives everyone some new ideas for journaling, and can help take the pressure off to think of something to journal about every day, especially for folks doing our Page Per Day Challenge.

This month’s themes are learning, growth, and self-realization.

Here are your daily topics to write, draw, collage or paint about for July 2016. If you like, you can share your answers with us on the Quo Vadis Page Per Day Challengers Facebook group!
