Using Daily Writing Prompts

Daily writing prompts can be a wonderful resource for those who struggle to get into the routine of putting their thoughts on paper. The easiest way to begin a daily writing session is to describe the events of the day. You can write in a simple narrative format or experiment by creating a poem or a play based on the day's activities. If you need some additional inspiration, however, this LoveToKnow Freelance Writing slideshow offers a few daily writing prompts that may be helpful.

Face the Day

What is your mood like when you wake up in the morning? Do you have any special rituals, such as reading the newspaper while enjoying a cup of coffee, that help you get ready for the responsibilities of the day?

Daily Weather

What was the weather like today? How did this affect your plans for the day or your mood in general?

You're the Star

If your life was used as the basis of a television show, what would the show be called? Would it be a comedy or a drama? What actors would you choose to portray the main characters?

Trading Places

If you could live someone else's life for one day, who would you pick? If you could have someone else spend a day living your life, who would you choose?


How is your daily life different now than it was five years ago? How do you imagine your life will change in another five years?

The Gift of Time

Many people often complain there isn't enough time in the day to get everything accomplished. If you were able to add an extra hour to the day, what would you do?
