Fun Personal Projects for Writers: Contemplating Life’s Questions

Once in a while I look up questions online. Questions about life, success, 241243183_80_80whatever might be interesting to write about. I think it is fun, and I’m betting at least a few of you do as well.

Why not start a journal for life’s question. Get yourself a nice journal, I like a sturdy hardcover one, and use your favorite pen. Doodle on, or scrap, each page of the journal, if you would like.

Each week, find a little time to look up a question online and journal about your thoughts regarding that question. Or, answer questions you think of on your own, or ones you here from others.

I am now making this type of journaling a regular part of my life. A few days last week I was able to set aside time for this project. Right now I am using Journal Sparks: 300 Questions to Journal about by Shery Ma Belle Arietta Russ. Skipping around, I choose whatever question I find the most interesting each day.

Morning works well for me. When will you write? Let us know about your journaling experiences in the comments of this post, or email me at I always answer emails.

NOTE: I bought this journaling book years ago. No one gave me anything in return for mentioning here on my blog. I do believe you can still get this book of journaling prompts.
