20 Creative Journal Prompts for Boosting Creativity

If you love writing everything down as much as I do then you’ll love these creative journal prompts! I’ve always loved writing down my thoughts and feelings and have even adopted the morning pages practise from Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way. However, sometimes we all need a little direction when feeling stuck and journal prompts are a great way to tease out ideas and inspire creativity.

  1. Write down 5 places you love and 5 places you would like to visit.
  2. What are the words you associate with creativity?
  3. What creative work are you most proud of any why?
  4. When and where do you feel most creative?
  5. Name one thing you’d like to find out more about. What steps can you take to learn more about it?
  6. What is your favourite outfit to wear, why do you love it?
  7. What would you like to create if anything were possible?
  8. What is your favourite month/season and why?
  9. Describe your perfect day from morning until evening.
  10. Which books would you like to read?
  11. Name some simple tiny pleasures that you would like to enjoy more of.
  12. What colours most resonate with you?
  13. Create a playlist of 5 songs that inspire you.
  14. Plan an adventure or a creative date just for yourself and write down a list of everything you’d like to do.
  15. What’s your favourite thing that you like to photograph? Make a list of photography project ideas.
  16. What did you try today that was new?
  17. Create the next chapter of your life story, what would you like that to be?
  18. Write down 5 great things about the place you live (county/community/people/home).
  19. Do you have a favourite object that has a flaw or two, what do you most like about that object?
  20. Describe a recent time that you were in nature. What did you notice?
