An almost mid-November check in.

Well November is here and I don't know about you but it feels as if we're barreling right through November. Fall has mostly shown up down here in the deep south, the time has changed, dinner is being eaten by candlelight. 

How is November treating you? I know you're getting an onslaught of emails and ads geared to Thanksgiving and Christmas and maybe like me, you're beginning to feel the pressure. It's not too late to reclaim this holiday season and balance the busyness with a bit of creativity.

I have been making time for writing each day. Sometimes it is only 10-15 minutes but those are 10 very precious minutes that feed my creativity. I believe you deserve to reclaim all the goodness of this season by staying centered and creative so this is your reminder. Whether you write in your journal or write a blog post to share, I encourage you to make time for yourself and see just how restorative it can be.

My goal is to write my way through the craziness of the holidays. Would you care to join me? You can begin today by joining in with the November prompts.


November prompt-a-day challenge — 30 prompts to get and keep you writing every day. Join us occasionally or join us every day; use the daily prompts as a source of inspiration for your writing, journaling, or photography. Please do not feel limited! Let these inspire you to be creative no matter what form that creativity takes.

Ready to play along?

  • Share your post on your blog then link back here and comment with a link to your post (note: link to your post rather than your blog). I will try to read every post that links up on the Write ALM site. It may take a while, but I'll be by to see what you're up to.
  • Share the link to your post or photograph on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #writealm. You can find me on Twitter: @writealm and on Instagram: writealm.
  • Feel free to share links to your posts/photographs inspired by the prompts on the Write ALM Facebook page as well.

If you're on Twitter or Instagram, be sure to click on the hashtag #writealm and you will be taken to a list of tweets or photographs with the same hashtag. Visit the Facebook page to see what kind of word magic others are weaving!

You'll find the prompts for November below. Have fun!

PS: There will be a few small prizes given away to those that link up. Three winners will be chosen at random at the end of November.

PPS: I would appreciate it if you would share this on Instagram and Twitter, and most especially if you would help share the Write ALM Facebook page. There will be a writerly prize package given away once we get 500 likes!

PPPS: I'm compiling prompts for December. If you have one you'd like to see on the list, let me know! The prompts for December will be posted Monday, November 25.
