Writing Prompts For The Creative


Anyone have a journal sitting idly by on their nightstand? We do! This year one of our goals is to be more creative, and this means being more intentional, more disciplined (for some of us). One of our main creative goals is to take time out of our busy day and journal for a bit before bed. It’s a simple act but it makes a world of difference in the long run. We’ve realized how precious our journals are from the past – those scribbled down memories recounting our golden days or days that were a little less sunny. Regardless  if we’re in a brilliant season of life or not, we have recognized the importance of documenting our musings, details of our day, deepest longings, and comedic encounters in a physical journal. Here are our favorite writing prompts for you to start your creative journey! Some of them vary in length and depth, but they prove to be entertaining and overall, a relaxing way to end your day.


  1. Envision your perfect day. What does it entail? Who’s with you?
  2. What is your favorite childhood memory?
  3. If you could have a movie made about your life, which actor would play you? Who would play your coworkers, friends, loved ones, etc. in your life?
