Use this list of Poetry prompts as you see fit. This list is not limited to poetry it can also be used as general writing prompts. The goal is to challenge yourself to remain positive this holiday season. "Tis' the Season", right? When you start to feel overwhelmed, stressed out, unappreciated. My suggestion when you start feeling these emotions is to stop, breathe and open your poetry journal or any journal for that matter and use these prompts! My hope is that in doing so you remember why the stress is worth it. Don't own a journal? check out my SEXY supply list and order one today!
Again, use this list as you see fit start at “A” and go through “Z”, vice versa, or just be random. You can use it daily or in moments of high stress. There are no rules! This is your list, your reminder to keep an attitude of gratitude this holiday season.
