Journal Prompts: Keep the Pen Moving

As NaNoWritMo begins I am reminded of the importance of keeping the pen moving. Don't stop and think, just write. In memoir writing that is what opens the subsconscious and brings forth those hidden memories.  Go with details. If you get off track keep going with the new thought. There's a reason your mind is following that train of thought.

Seven more journal prompts:

Have you ever had a recuring dream?

What have been the greatest challenges of your life?

Have family members, or others, ever lived with you?

Did you ever make mud pies?

Have you ever gone boating?

Where was your favorite place to shop?

Write about having childhood diseases.
