30 Days of Lists: FAQ

  • What is 30 Days of Lists? 
30 Days of Lists is a month-long, list themed journaling challenge. Its both an encouragement and challenge to you that you CAN journal just something every day- even something as small as a list.
Every day through the month of September 2012 we will be posting a list prompt – anything from weekend goals to celebrity crushes. At the end of the 30 days you’ll have a collection of entries creating a small snapshot of your life right now.
Only 5-10 minutes per day are really needed. While you’re waiting for someone, or when you’re the passenger in the car. You can even download the list topics ahead of time to get a jump start!
That’s all.
Just write.
There’s no wrong way to do this and if you don’t like a prompt on a certain day, just change it.
  • What do I get after registering for 30 Days of Lists?
