Your FREE invite to the July Journaling Challenge

The 30 Day Journal Project is a FREE challenge to help you tap your creative source and make something you love. #30DAYJOURNAL

 What if 10,000 (or more!) people journaled together for 30 Days?

This is the audacious idea that launched the very first 30 Day Journal Project in January, 2014.

Since then, more than 8,000 journalers have participated from around the globe.

For many, it was the very first time they dared to face the blank page.

So many people wrote in to say:

“Wow – I never journaled before, and this project inspired me to begin.”

Other participants are experienced writers, coaches, and creatives – many who teach writing and creativity themselves.

Why I created the 30 Day Journal Project

Creative journaling is my number one tool as an artist and creative entrepreneur.

I designed this project to help you discover the magic that happens when you journal for 30 days.

30 days of prompts and ideas to inspire, motivate, and en-Courage you, with creative community to support you. That’s my intention.

How it works:

The 30 Day Journal Project brings you 30 days of inspiration and journaling prompts for 30 days, delivered right to your email address.

To sign up for the latest 30 Day Journal Project, come on over here: 30 Day Journal Project

It’s free to participate.

You’ll get the first prompt when you register, and another for a total of 30 days.

Supplies: All you need to begin is a notebook and something to write with. If you’ve taken other workshops with me, you can use those supplies, too. If not, you’ll see some fun ideas to try yourself.

There’s more goodness included, including ways to connect with other participants, and get pretty visuals to print out for your journal, add to your Pinterest gallery, or share as you wish.

    I want to try this, but I am very loathe. I have never been able to journal and don’t know if I will be able to last the 30 days. I hope to find some stick-to-it-tiiveness.

    Thank you. Love all your work.

    I write myself into corners, going deeper and deeper into a subject, conversation, thought, that I can’t get out! I don’t know how to turn my writing around to go up instead of down, wide instead of small, spacious instead of restricted.

    I did not receive anything in my mailbox this morning and there is nothing in my Trash.

    My biggest challenge to daily Journalling is believing I have the time….
    Letting myself WRITE without hearing the critic who is rhyming off all of the things I ‘should’ be doing!
    This is my time though!!

    My biggest challenge is sorting through the million thoughts going through my head at any given moment to pull out one or twelve to write about. Prompts help a lot, so that will be a blessing in this challenge.

    What I hope to take away is a regained natural writing habit. And maybe a few organizational skills for this wild and wacky mind. ^_^

    Glad to join you. I write almost every day, working on a memoir so it will be a pleasurable boost to do some visual journaling every day. Thanks for the invitation.

    I’ve been journaling for approx the past 15 years, and it’s been an amazing life-changing experience. Still, I’d like to join this project because I love the idea + sense of community, and hoping to share good vibes and ideas.

    I have just started writing morning pages for a whole year (#project365 – on day 29 right now!) in my journal so I am already journaling each day. However, I am always open to new ideas and meeting new people who are interested in journaling and I’d love to have a larger sense of community. Writing is such an isolated activity! So to answer your questions – my biggest challenge would be to keep inspired about what to write about. I have a feeling I may need some prompts from time to time! And what would I like to take away with me – just new ideas and some new connections would be great! Looking forward to it.

    Mr biggest Challenge is to believe in mijn own creative abbility . To be inspired by the works of others, instead of thinking that I will never be that good.

    My biggest challenge with journaling is finding the time to do it and

    Sticking with it. Even though I love art journaling I can’t seem to do it constantly.

    What do you want to take away from this journaling project?

    Consistency, to challenge myself to try new techniques. To practice it as self grow, therapy, and whatever else comes with it 🙂

    This will be my 3rd journalling challenge with you, Lisa, & while I tell myself it’ll be different this time **for sure**, I suspect that somewhere along the line — Day 7 maybe; maybe Day 17 — I’ll be tempted to skip or put off because of something else, something more “urgent” or “important”, something I “have to do”. As Diva said just above, my biggest challenge is ME. I have the time (srsly, I HAVE the time). I have the resources. I even have the self-awareness & the knowledge that every time I do one of these challenges, the insights that come are staggering. Every. Single. Time. And maybe that’s the problem. Maybe I’m not as easily distracted as I think I am. Maybe I’m just old-fashioned plain scared. And that right there is why I can hardly wait for this one to start! Thanks again from the bottom of my heart, Lisa. I know you’ve got 1000 things going on, yet you always manage to carve out the time to do this for us. I hope you know how much it’s appreciated.

      Susann – I love your story – thanks for sharing.

      I believe the biggest “secret” if there is one for creative work – is that we have to learn how to begin, over and over again.

      I wish someone had told me that 20 or 30 years ago… I would have totally relaxed about my creativity and all the starts / stops / detours / etc.

      I’ve learned it’s ALL part of the journey. Necessary, even.

      Glad you’re here!

    My biggest challenge is me! Allowing myself time and space to fuel my creativity is something I struggle with. I am hoping to allow myself this time to reconnect to a part of myself that I seldom make time for. Family doesn’t always understand or support my desire to create.

    Taking time for 30 days is my challenge. I do well the first 10 days and then I slide off. In fact, I am still working through the last 30 day journal challenge! I saved them and work on them when I notice that I need to slow down and reflect. Of course in the back of my mind, I know that I should reflect daily.

    • Lisa Sonora June 11, 2015 at 10:05 am #

      Sharon – There are no shoulds in here at all! Go gently and enjoy…

  15. Janet June 10, 2015 at 5:59 pm #

    Time and commitment to keeping it up are my greatest challenges…I am extremely random, want to try anything which sometimes leads to my energy being scattered all over the place which leaves me feeling unfulfilled. Confidence in my artistic abilities is also a huge issue for me… I have committed to ‘mornings are mine’ for this project and am hoping it brings me back to more regular blogging as well…Excited for this to begin! 🙂

    • Lisa Sonora June 11, 2015 at 10:06 am #

      Janet – stay tuned! This project has so many good resources for all of these challenges. I’m excited, too!

    My biggest challenges with journaling is making the time to do it. This involves setting aside “me” time in a family that doesn’t understand the concept. This will be my 3rd 30-day Journaling and each time I uncover a little more. I can’t wait to see what this one brings.
