Day 1: Writing Challenges
Today marks the last 90 days of the year. (Insane, right?) How time has completely escaped us! Well, now is the time to make the most of it! I'm hosting a writing challenge, both targeting two completely different things. 1) Self-reflection: you'll get daily journaling prompts to cause you to reflect, let go, set goals, the perks are endless. 2) Creative writing: for creative writing outlets in case you're stuck. Yes I came up with all of these over many hours, and I really enjoyed it, so I can't write alongside you!
Let's work to be our best selves and focus on what it is we want to accomplish, and who we want to be in this month. Which brings me to my first Journal Prompt:
What is your intention for the month?
I'll be sharing a little bit about what my intention is for the month, but for now, I want to remind you that there are no rules to this. You can write as little or as much as you'd like. You're doing this for YOU! For no one else.
Have you always wanted to write? Don't know where to start? Are you a writer looking to get back into writing? My prompts will set up the scene and all you have to do is let your imagination run wild. Also, there is no write (just kidding) right or wrong answer when it comes to writing. Remember, writing is a muscle, and writing every day trains your muscle!
Today's writing prompt is:
Write a different ending to your favorite movie.
You already know the story, but how would you personally have done it differently? What additional story information needed to be told or wrapped up? Don't be so stuck on the idea that it's your favorite but instead if you'd like to change a movie that's your least favorite, that's okay too.
Okay, let's get started! I won't always be posting my writing responses, but I will on select days! I hope you enjoy this fun 31 day challenge! Welcome to day one!
If you missed some of the information on the October Challenge, you could find it here:
Tis the season to be mentally stimulated, and on a mission to get aligned with both your writing, and a creative release if that's what interests you. Write-tober is 31 days of fiction writing prompts during the month of October, only I'm doing it a bit differently. I'm going to be giving you writing prompts for journaling and self-reflection. And since I am a writer, I'll be giving you creative writing prompts in case you'd like to try a new creative outlet.
There are many perks when it comes to journaling. Which is the purpose of Navigating Namaste, to encourage and provide the tools for you to be the best version of yourself. Journaling is said to improve creativity, enhances your well-being, serves as a mood booster, improves your memory, helps with anxiety and depression, allows you to look introspectively, helps you figure out what you want, and helps with the setting and accomplishing of goals.
Perks of writing fiction for 31 days is that it serves as a creative outlet, and for you writers out there, you can get in the habit of writing everyday!
I'm incredibly excited, as I've been coming up with these prompts for us to dig deep, but also create! Know that these prompts are my own original ideas, and with each day's prompt you will be getting both creative and journaling prompts. Sometimes, I may even share what I write.
What you can expect:
Every morning, you can expect a new post with two prompts. They'll be there by the time you wake up in the morning. I'll be scheduling these out in advance so that you're never waiting on me.
