Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is tuned on.
— Louis L’Amour said that.
Today’s Journal Prompts:
What I know about my own creative beginnings is…
The idea of starting to write brings up…
What gets in my way when I want to write (or do something new)…
Make those obstacles into a list, titled No Matter What
Do one or more of these prompts.
Come back here tomorrow.
Get Started with Journaling
Facing the blank page can be intimidating. So I wrote this piece to help you get started:
Inside you’ll find an image from my own sketchbook (where I do my journaling), plus ideas on how to work with prompts in your journal, and… a few more prompts.
Make your journaling habit even easier
Last year when I offered the first 30 Day Journal Project, I found that having the prompts printed out in advance helped me get right into my journaling for the day.
So I made you nice versions of the very same layouts I’ll be using for my own journaling.
Get ALL 30 days of prompts & quotes (plus one bonus day) with 2 different layout designs.

Each inspirational quote for the 30 Day Journal Project has a pretty visual graphic for you to print out and paste your journal, add to your Pinterest gallery, or share as you wish.
You are invited to share your experience in the comments—the dream is to collect your stories for an upcoming book about this project.
Use the hashtag #30DAYJOURNAL in your blog and social media posts so we can find each other and build our creative community.

This post is part of the 30 Day Journal Project.
Our theme for this year is: FLOW.
Every day for 30 days, a brand new set of journaling prompts is posted right here.
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.
The 7 Creative Powers is all about breaking through resistance and understanding the places we get stuck. For those who have already taken Dreaming on Paper or Creative + Practice.
