The Six (Eight) Question Starters (Prompts) for Any and All Journaling
A Journaling Prompt or Question:
There are six (eight) question starters (prompts) that we can use for all of our journaling and for all types of journaling. They are the Six Journalistic Questions:
But, let me add two more:
(8) Why not?
What Type of Journaling Can You Use This With?
With everything you journal from a morning journal entry to remembering a memory and capturing it on the page. From gratitude journaling to prayer and Bible journaling. From travel/vacation journaling to news journaling. From marriage journal to a memoir journal. From a food journal to an exercise journal.
How Do You Use These Six (Eight) Starter Questions?
Let me answer this question with an example.
Remember that the question is a starter. Ask every question you can think of for whatever your topic is you're journaling for/about.
Let's say I wanted to journal about my morning, for example:
Who did I see this morning?
Who did I think of this morning?
Who did I pray for this morning?
Who do I need to get in touch with?
What did I do yesterday?
What did I do last night?
What have I done so far today?
What am I supposed to do today?
What did I have for breakfast?
What am I wearing?
What is the weather like today?
What is my husband doing?
What does my husband have planned?
What do I want to do with God today?
What do I want to read in the Bible?
What do I want to read, as far as a Christian living book? What am I reading?
What do I want to pray?
Where am I?
Where did I journal this morning?
Where am I supposed to go today? Tomorrow? This week?
Where is my next journal that I need to fill in?
Where are my cats?
You get the idea. I could go on and on. These are just a small fraction of the journaling that I can do from these question starters for my journaling this morning.
A Journal Prompt or Question: Your Turn
Use this technique with whatever type of journaling you want to do next.
