Here are the Tin Teddy Daily Journal Prompts for the month of November 2020 . There is a printable PDF version available too.
Please feel free to interpret them as loosely as you like – or change, rearrange or ignore them too.
It is up to you how much or little you write each day – it may vary.
I will be doing the challenge myself and will put up some of my entries on Instagram.
Use hashtag #tinteddyjournal to post your own daily journaling – but please don’t feel you need to share what you write with anyone! The journaling is for your own benefit, but if you want to share, then please do.
1 If you had to live alone in a hotel room, with all basic needs taken care of, what would you do with your time?
2 Use an ink pad, paint, or colour with a felt tip onto a shiny surface such as plastic, to ink up your finger. Make some fingerprints on your journal page then turn them into animals or little people. If you want to write, add some biographies or details about them.
3 What is the best joke or jokes you have ever heard? Or did you have a favourite joke as a child?
4 You can travel in time ten years to ask three questions of your future self. What do you ask you?
