Writing Wednesday: Daily journaling prompts for November

Post Comment

The day goes sleeping

Continuing our series on daily journaling prompts, here is a list of journaling topics for every day in November! 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 we are doing something different: below is a quote for every day in November. These quotes are meant to make you think, give you inspiration, or offer a different perspective. Each day this month write, draw, paint or collage what the day’s quote means to you, or if it reminds you of a particular situation or time in your life. If you like, you can share your answers with us on the Quo Vadis Page Per Day Challengers Facebook group!
