Journal Starter Prompt | “Good”

Story-telling. Digital Scrapping is first and foremost the art of recording memories and storytelling. But sometimes it can be hard to find a story. Even with your pictures right in front of you… it can be hard to remember a particular story or facts. That is why I began posting journaling prompts or Journal Starters. It may help you look to capture more meaning in your storytelling OR just be a place that you can go when you are ‘stuck’ on something to say. It could help you to find that story for your page.

Today’s journal prompt is going to focus on a simple word … “GOOD”

You might be thinking just the word, “good” might seem a little strange. But as I thought on that word for a while, my mind was flooded with ideas of how this word can inspire your journaling process! Think of how many different ways you can USE the word good to describe things.

Here are some ideas:

  • life is good
  • good day
  • living the good life
  • in good time
  • the good part
  • good place to start
  • good idea
  • good times
  • good morning
  • as good as it gets
  • good as gold
  • the good news
  • good-for-nothing
  • good-humored
  • good-looking
  • good-natured
  • good-tempered
  • goodbye
  • goodhearted
  • goodness
  • goodnight
  • goods
  • goodwill

The list could go on and on!

You could:
1) Use this prompt as your title. OR
2) Use this as a jump-start for your journaling process.
See where this little word can take you?

The longer I dwelled on the word “good” – the more inspired I became! 
So I came up with a word art pack that will help you with journaling the good in your life.

Here are a couple layouts using the journal prompt (and pieces from the wordart pack):

My Journal Process:  I instantly gravitated toward these photos when I thought of the word, “good”.  I used the cute term, “what’cha got cookin’ good-lookin”.  This still makes me smile!  It really helped me to focus on the story in a different way then if I just opened up the page and started scrapping.

My Journal Process:  On this next layout I used the prompt, “oh good gravy”.  And truth be told, it totally help to tell a story on this layout. HAHA!! I didn’t include much journaling on this page, but just the sentiment alone lead you to understand the story.






Feel free to take today’s journal prompt and scrap those “good” stories…
As always I love to see what you create, so leave a comment to this post with a link to your layout!
