Journaling always seems like a reasonably simple concept until it is time to get writing. Although journaling is an accessible way to explore thoughts and feelings, it can be challenging at first.
Not everyone is a natural-born writer, even if they are only writing for themselves. Ideas, thoughts, and emotions can be difficult to express on paper for those who have not gotten into the hang of it yet.
Journals these days offer a wide variety of categories for writing prompts to inspire new writers. Take a look at the guided journals below to cover all of your writing and journaling needs for the year.
