For the month of August, I am introducing the Writers Write Journaling Plan to writelaughdream.com. I am taking a short hiatus from the blog to work on a very important project. But I would never just leave you hanging! There will be a couple posts, just not at the frequency you are used to!
Getting into Writers Write, I personally feel that writers should write all the time. It’s a great way to constantly come up with new ideas and just to be able to express yourself even when you are not writing for an audience. Many people have asked me how I am able to write every single day! I am not talking about just blog posts, but in addition to blogging, I write in my journal. I distinctly remember someone responding to a tweet of mine that I write every day with, “About what?” lol. What can someone possibly write about every day? Any and everything!
So what I have prepared for you is a journaling plan for the month of August. I think A LOT! Lol. So these are just some of the things that get my brain working and are easy for me to write about. I will post the week’s prompts every Monday this month and I would love to hear from you if you are following along! Leave comments on the blog posts or use the hashtag #WritersWriteWLD. It will be a great month of writing inspiration, I hope that you will join me!
Week one’s prompts are all career and dream focused. Sometimes when we begin to be honest with ourselves about where we are in our professional lives, we can begin to put the plans in motion to get where we really want to be.
Monday 8/3 - Fill in the Blank
When I was young, I thought I would be a _____________. How much has that goal from your younger self changed if at all? Are you where you thought you would be? Has the change been for better or for worse?
Tuesday 8/4 - Passion
Are you doing what makes you happy for a career? What would you be doing if you didn’t have to worry about money at all? How can you begin to bridge the gap of where you are to where you actually want to be?
Wednesday 8/5 - Moving Mountains
What’s the biggest obstacle that you are facing in your professional life? Is it a mental block? Fear? Is it literally a person or physical thing standing in your way?
Thursday 8/6 - Dream Chasing
Are you doing something every day to work towards your dream? What does that look like? Getting up early? Working late? Are you making certain to make time for your dream?
Friday 8/7 - Goals
We’re a little more than half way through the year, how will you finish? Where are you on your goals for the year? What can you change to be certain you meet them within the last few months of the year?
Saturday 8/8 - Trophies
What’s the most important thing you have accomplished this year? How has it made you feel to get there?
Sunday 8/9 - Analyze
How does making progress in your professional life make you feel? How do you keep it going? What does success look like to you?
