Monday Morning Writing Prompt

It's all well and good to talk about journaling, but there are many of us who buy a journal or open a new document on our computer only to discover that we are suddenly tongue-tied and staring at a blank page. Writing prompts can often be the kick that we need to get the pen moving and the keyboard clicking. So each Monday morning we'll provide you with a prompt to help you get words on a page. At the risk of sounding repetitive, we believe every person has a story and that those stories are lost if they are not told. Sometimes, we tell the stories to a select audience (maybe only ourselves), but there are times when we desire to tell the stories to a wider audience. However you choose to tell your story is up to you, but we do encourage you to put pen to paper and say something. If nothing else it's good therapy, but who knows how it might impact someone if you choose to share it? So here is your Monday Morning Writing Prompt:

Think back to your best friend in elementary or middle school. Describe her and your friendship. What secrets did you share? What was your favorite thing to do together? How did that friendship shape you for life, or did it?

Now, write!

We love to read your stories, so if you want to share it with us send it to


  1. what a great idea! I'm going to do this, I hope. but one suggestion -- post it on Wednesdays. or better yet Fridays! I'm never going to do it on Mondays. but you know how that goes...

  2. Think of it more as a "weekly writing prompt." So if Wednesday or Friday works better for you then write on those days, or any day of the week that you can.

  3. Seriously, Lisa, you're up blogging at 4:30 in the morning?!

  4. Not up at 4:30 a.m. Blogger's clock is two hours off. Up at 6:30 a.m. Much better, huh?
