The start of a new season can bring lots of reasons to put pen to paper. From cosy nights journalling by the fire to long crisp walks for inspiration, there are plenty of ways to channel your creativity this coming fall.
So, whether you’re a writer, journaller, musician, or just looking to explore your creative side, we’ve put together five journalling ideas we hope will help you harness your creative side.
1. Write a letter to your future self
Imagine yourself 10 years from this September and write a letter to that person. What would you like to say to yourself? Some prompts could be:
Advice I would give myself is…
Goals I hope to have achieved by now are…
In the next 10 years I hope to be…
2. Create a vision page of your September goals
Vision pages can be a great way to get all your thoughts out in one place. Use colours, shapes and images to express your intentions and any feelings that go along with them. If you’re out and about, bring your journal with you so you can add to your vision pages whenever creativity strikes.
3. Write a short story based on a dream you had
Dreams can be a great source of inspiration for writers. Take a dream you had recently and turn it into a short story. Don’t worry about making it make sense – just let your imagination run wild!
4. Create a piece of art inspired by nature
If you’re compelled to draw, take yourself outdoors for a few hours to soak up the fresher feeling in the air. Let the nature of this month inspire your creativity. It could be a sketch, a photo or any form of art that mirrors the season’s magnificent offerings.
5. Write a poem about a significant moment in September
As the month of September unfolds, take note of a moment that had a big impact on you. Write a poem that captures the emotions and feelings you experienced during that moment. If nothing comes to you, feel free to take inspiration from previous years. The important thing is to let your creative expression soar!
