JUNE 2021 WRITING PROMPTS
Week 1 Writing Prompt: June 1st-5th
What are some ways to transition from spring to summer? (Cleaning, wardrobe changes, etc.) After doing the activity, write about how it made you feel after you completed the task.
The weather is heating up and the seasons are shifting. Clearing out winter coats and snow boots makes space for summer gear and outdoor adventures. Writing about the transition process will help you approach the new season with appreciation and organization.
Week 2 Writing Prompt: June 6th-12th
How does journaling help you through periods of change? Can you write outdoors to spice up your writing routine?
This writing prompt helps you reflect on the impact of journaling as part of a self care practice. Think about how you can combine the outdoors and your writing or illustration practice. Try going to a park and writing from a picnic blanket, or go for a hike and find a quiet place to sketch what you see.
Week 3 Writing Prompt: June 13th - 19th
Writing Prompt: Plan your fantasy summer vacation to a national park. Where would you go and why? What about that location inspires you?
Whether it’s a new destination or an old favorite, think about a national park or natural wonder that you would like to visit. Spend some time looking at photos and planning your dream summer vacation. What is it about the region and landscape that entices you?
Week 4 Writing Prompt: June 20th - 26th
Writing Prompt: Reflect on the past month and any outdoor adventures you went on. Does being outside help improve your mood? Do you notice any personal changes happening because of spending more time outside?
Think about how spending more time outside affects your life. Going outdoors does wonders for mental health. It’s a proven way to reduce anxiety and stress, while making you feel more energized. Even a walk around the block can boost creativity and inspiration.

Writing Prompt: What are you proud of accomplishing this month? Did you meet the goals you set at the beginning? What are you looking forward to next month?
