This is a journal swap in which the prompts will be provided for you. There are 34 of them so you will (obviously) be writing once a day for 34 days.

There needs to be at least a full page (one side) written for each prompt.

Journal can be store bought or handmade. Decorate if desired, but not required.

The prompts are:

  • What three things would you change about your life right now and why?

  • If you could organize any charity what would it be. Give a detailed explanation about why you would choose this charity and what exactly you would do.

  • What are some things you really want and/or need in your life right now?

  • What are some mistakes you've made that you never want to make again?

  • What are some areas in which you need to improve yourself in, and what could you do to accomplish this?

  • Write about a few times you remember having an immense amount of fun.

  • What's the worst thing a family member or close friend has done to you? What's the worst thing you have done to someone else?

  • What are some things you won't talk about with anyone?

  • Random things about you that nobody knows

  • What are some stupid things that you just can't stop yourself from doing?

  • What are some things you have a hard time with right now?

  • What issues do you feel very strongly about?

  • What resolutions would you make for someone else (at least 10), who would it be and why would you choose these resolutions

  • What gifts would you give to 5 people in your life if money wasn't a problem...tell who the 5 people are and what you'd give them.

  • What are some things that most people do that you believe is just bizarre?

  • What is on your ultimate wishlist?

  • Write about someone that you really don't like...think of some nice things you can say about them.

  • What are atleast ten of your favorite words...list more if you have them

  • What are some things you have gossiped and spread rumors about that you later found out weren't true?

  • What things make your life worth living?

  • What pieces of your past self have you lost and miss?

  • What things do you normally find yourself "running away" from?

  • Write about a time you were so sure about something and later found out you were wrong.

  • Write about a time you got caught "red handed".

  • What do you think people say about you behind your back?

  • What would your eulogy say?

  • What scares you the most about the future?

  • What topics usually turn into an argument for you?

  • What are some things you often wonder about?

  • What is something for which you seek revenge?

  • What are some things that you need to forgive yourself for?

  • At what times do you feel alone in a crowd?

  • What in this world breaks your heart?

  • What are some of your complaints?

Would we get them back after our partner read them or is this a keepsies swap? Just curious...

Reallusionista 07/30/2011 #

It's not required for partners to send back, but if you would like yours back you can talk to your partner about it. Everyone is normally quite alright with it as long as you send postage for them to send back.

helen21 07/30/2011 #

Hi, is there any level of censorship on the journal?

Reallusionista 07/30/2011 #

@helen21 no ma'am...be prepared for anything :)

helen21 08/ 1/2011 #

Hi, thanks, I just didn't want to cause offence rf language, religious views etc. I understand that we are all individuals and have different ideas of what is acceptable and what isn't. :)

If you want to keep your records, better copy them before sending - or type in your computer - if this is allowed - or only handwritten is expected...?

Reallusionista 08/ 3/2011 #

I prefer handwritten myself, but I know everyone is different so I am leaving it sender's choice.

Laylaaaface 08/ 4/2011 #

I think I might do two of these, one for myself and one for my partner!

bedsitdiary 08/ 8/2011 #

Hello I am new and would like to join. I have tried to press the contact button but am having no success in getting a message to you. Your prompts are so thought-provoking I would really like to do this swap. Thanks Izzy

Is there a minimum size requirement?

Reallusionista 08/25/2011 #

@catnipitis --your journal should be at least a size 5X5

catnipitis 08/25/2011 #

Ok thanks!

Hi I have just joined Swap-Bot and love the sound of this for my first swap!

MSturgill87 08/27/2011 #

Do we have to do the prompts in the order they are written or can it be any order as long as we do them all?

Reallusionista 08/27/2011 #

@mandimoore87 -- you may do them in any order you choose :)

MSturgill87 08/30/2011 #

ok thanks!

Laylaaaface 09/17/2011 #

The person who is supposed to be sending this to me is partially suspended, I wont get my hopes up about receiving my journal :(

HeidiJean 10/ 5/2011 #

@Laylaaaface contact the host, ask her who is supposed to send to the person who is partially suspended. If she is fully suspended at this point, maybe her partner can angel for you? That's what I had to do for another swap.

thegypsie 10/13/2011 #

I am willing to angel for who ever was the partner of @sickodoodle all I ask is that it be okay that I type and give me 2 weeks to complete. I have carpal tunnel and sometimes writing gets pretty sloppy if my hand is in pain. I will be mailing out to my partner tomorrow so if an angel is needed for the partner of the suspended person, I am game.

Laylaaaface 10/13/2011 #

This swap seems to be doomed for me! The person Im supposed to send to is now partially suspended!
Sadly there seems to be an awful lot of unreliable swappers on this site recently!

HeidiJean 10/15/2011 #

@laylaaaface especially in the journal swaps!

Nyu 10/16/2011 #

I think it would be a good idea to extend the "send by"-date, for like a week or so, so that all these problems with the suspended swappers could be resolved.

The partner I was supposed to send to is also partially suspended.

Reallusionista 10/17/2011 #

Deadline extended to work out a few kinks going on!!!

journalstories 10/18/2011 #

I marked mine as sent yesterday as I was going to take it to the post office but I have not sent it after seeing the deadline extension- I will add some more to it for my partner.

wintergarten 10/19/2011 #

The person I should send my journal is partially suspended, too. Wouldn't it somehow be fair to seach partners with which all those wo send their journal to a partially suspended person swap again in a private swap? like scan your journal in and swap it per mail or something... so everybody would at least get anything...

journalstories 11/ 2/2011 #

Mine arrived, it is so great thank you to my partner! Can't wait to hear when mine arrives!
