Unjournaling Daily Writing Exercises That Are Not Personal, Not Introspective, Not Boring!
Some students are just not comfortable with sharing intimate details about their thoughts, feelings, and lives— at least, not with others in a class or group. Unjournaling, Second Edition is brimming with playful writing prompts that are entirely impersonal, easing the way for hesitant writers while still offering creative challenges for those who are more experienced.
This edition updates existing prompts while introducing 50 brand new ones. It includes sample responses— a helpful tool for anyone who gets stuck with a topic and wants to see how it can be done! Two examples of the 250 writing prompts include:
- Somebody’s sitting behind you on the bus. You hear only one side of an odd cell phone conversation, but it is intriguing and alarms you. What do you hear?
- Igor could hardly wait to get his new special license plates for his car. He paid extra for these plates: BIM- BB1. Explain the meaning behind this very special license plate.
Suited for seventh grade to adulthood, Unjournaling is a flexible, varied, interesting, and, most of all, fun approach to creative writing.
