NaJoWriMo Journal Writing Book

Each NaJoWriMo month centers on a theme. The theme for October is “nleasing Your Creative Mind Through Journal Writing.” 

This theme challenges you to write and reflect on your creative side. 

Many of us don’t explore and use our creative energy unless we’re a fiction writer, painter, poet, song writer, graphic designer, or some other type of artist. The older we get, the more disconnected we become from our creative side. But we all have creative abilities, even if we don’t know how to paint, draw, or write stories. 

You don’t have to use the theme to participate in NaJoWriMo, but if you decide that you want to, you can order the NaJoWriMo October journaling book on Amazon.

I’ve been journal writing for 30+ years for a long-term collection of my thoughts, progression of self over time, and recording of travels/events. I rarely use prompts, but April’s [Personal Renewal] theme struck a chord with me, and I’ve enjoyed the focused, thematic journaling quite a lot.

I’ve been journaling and art journaling for over 20 years. I find NaJoWriMo helpful when I’m stumped about what to write, how to dig deeper, and how to face issues I may have avoided — it helps me grow. THANK YOU SO MUCH, NAJOWRIMO — you’ve helped me keep journaling and attached to what I really love.
