So far this is how it's worked. I have scoured the internet for some sort of writing prompt. When we settle in together, I share the prompt. Everyone writes or draws their response. Then I ask if anyone wants to share what they've written or drawn, but remind them that sharing is completely optional. No one has to share anything.
Any ideas for future prompts are very, very welcome! Any input or ideas of any kind is also very welcome. I am totally making this up as I go along, so appreciate all input and guidance.
The first night we went over the Journal Rules: You are allowed to write or draw anything you want in your journal. Anything. You never have to share anything you don't want to from your journal, but you may share anything you'd like. Journals are PRIVATE. No one has permission UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES to read or look in another person's journal, without their express permission. By express permission I mean: that they are right there with you in the same room while you are reading and they said that it was okay that same hour. Someone sharing something with you once does NOT give you permission to look in their journal whenever you want.
So far these have been our prompts:
What is your superpower?
What is your kryptonite?
Draw or describe your supersuit, super lair, or super mobile.
(all of those were taken from here )
Describe a time when you were courageous.
What is your biggest fear?
Draw the depths of your heart.Tonight these will be our prompts:
Write about the worst day of your life. What made it so bad? What, if anything, did you learn from that day?
Write about the best day, or a great day of your life. What made it so good? What, if anything, did you learn from that day?
Write and acrostic poem using your name, using only positive adjectives or attributes to describe yourself.
