Write Me Prompts

If you are sending me a letter but are a little stumped on what to say, here are some prompts that I find interesting! :)

  • If you could be a book character, who would you be?

  • Five weird things that you like

  • A random secret

  • Your favorite place to be

  • Draw me a picture (I won't judge!)

  • Tell me about your pets

  • Tell me about something funny that happened

  • What's your favorite book and why?

  • If you could have any superpower, what would it be? How would you use it?

  • A random memory

  • Best piece of advice you've ever received

  • What is the funnest thing you've ever done?

  • Tell me about a time when you did something spontaneous


I have been journaling since I was 11 years old, and I still keep up the practice today! I would love to meet other journal people :) I also enjoy participating in journal swaps every now and again...

Let's Be Friends


Super girly things (pink, purple, too many frills, rhinestones, hello kitty, etc.), Skull and crossbones, dark/rude humor, inappropriate things, Holiday themed (I have enough), tattoos, notepads, stuff for kids (simple coloring pages, foam stickers, etc.). Anything witchcraft or voodoo. Even though I like coffee I don't like coffee flavored candy. Cherry flavored candy. Not a fan of any sports, so I don't care for them, cigarette smoke, smoke of any kind,

Snail Mail Art

I absolutely LOVE getting Mail Art letters! A decorated envelope is a sure way to get a heart from me! Also fun and interesting stamps are always lovely to receive. :)

The LORD is Good!

Send me your favorite Bible verse :)

Comment: Tessa, your words mean much that you'd share them with me. I didn't read them as a rant at all, and l'll write a response asap. Your comments about motivating yourself align with all of us...often over and over at any age. We can usually make more progress after we vent! ☺ Armloads of cheers and thanks for the tags the perfect PCs, the cool stamps and envie. Hearts back to you, with hope we swap again...jinanne ❤

oblivionspin on Feb 16, 2016:

I had to check out your profile after running into you in the group forums (and because how can I resist scoping out the other journaling redheads on this site). Your profile is really stellar. I might have to mooch the write me prompts idea for mine.
Also, for how much we absolutely do not have in common we sure have a lot in common. I hope we run into each other in a swap at some point or something. (:
