Unleashing Your Creative Mind

Theme for NaJoWriMo October (Begins October 1st)

October NaJoWriMo Theme:
Unleashing Your Creative Mind Through Journal Writing

Note: this course starts on October 1st.

The theme for these 30 days of prompts is about the power of creativity in your personal life. 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.

For the purposes journal writing, this theme is a mixture of prompts that invite you to reflect on your thoughts, ideas, and experiences about creativity, and to use creative expression in your journal writing.

If you work through these prompts you will discover more about yourself, and reconnect to some of the creative energy you may have lost as you grew up.

Testimonials About NaJoWriMo

I've definitely been enjoying my first experience with NaJoWriMo! I didn't realize what a rut my journaling had fallen into until I started working with the daily prompts for this October theme. I've discovered unexpected advantage as well. I write fiction but recently entered the genre arena of creative nonfiction/essays. The NaJoWriMo prompts have helped me loosen up the scholastic ultra-formality I learned for essay writing long ago in school.

Thanks, Bakari! I'm already looking forward to the next NaJoWriMo!

Thank you Bakari for commenting on my first entry of the #NaJoWriMo! And yes, you are right, there was ”more creativity” within me than I first thought once I sat down with the question of the initial prompt.

Will use the prompts to spark new blog posts, but possibly spread them out more than on a daily basis!

--HERO — the coach

Too often, my journal devolves into something more like a record of daily events rather than creative expressions or inner explorations. This will be the first time I've worked with prompts for a guided journaling experience. Looking forward to it. :)


I'm back writing again!!

I’ve been journaling for at least 20 years with some extended breaks. NaJoWriMo helps me to stay organized, and provides brain dumping of ideas for future novels. I ran across NaJoWriMo while on Twitter in the Fall of 2017. I hadn’t wrote any words of any kind at that point for two years. NaJoWriMo helped me get my creative spark back and I was able to complete my first 50,000 word novel for NaNoWriMo because of the challenge! Thanks Bakari!
