When I thumb through my journal and look at the things I often give thanks for in my daily gratitude lists, I’m struck by how much of those lists are filled with material possessions such as my home and my car. Even when I give thanks for experiences such as trips to New York or to Orange Beach, I recognize that these things couldn’t happen without money.
When I write about how wonderful it feels to walk peacefully in my neighborhood, I also acknowledge that it’s a blessing to be able to afford to live in a quiet suburb.
So today when writing in my journal, I challenged myself to express gratitude for five things that money can’t buy.
A few years ago I started a Thanksgiving journaling tradition. While I typically list at least five things I’m grateful for each morning, on Thanksgiving morning I challenge myself to write my gratitude list for five minutes instead.
Here are 30 November writing prompts to help you with whichever writing challenge you decide to take on this month.
Fiction writers who have signed up for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) are setting out to write 50,000 words of a new novel. Or maybe you’re going to be a NaNo Rebel and work on something else, such as a memoir or movie script.
Here at See Jane Write HQ, November is all about Blog Like Crazy – an annual challenge to publish a new blog post every day for 30 days. (It’s like NaBloPoMo – or National Blog Posting Month – but with a much cooler name.)
Or maybe you just want to make this November the month you finally develop a writing routine you can stick with.
No matter your goal, writing prompts can help you achieve it.
