As I’ve mentioned before, I started journaling over this past year. Sometimes I can just grab my notebook and pen and start writing down my thoughts. But other times I need prompts to help me get everything down on paper.
Having previously created some journal prompts inspired by lyrics from Taylor Swift’s ‘Reputation’ and ‘Lover’ albums, I thought it would be very apt to create some inspired by lyrics from ‘Red’. These prompts are in no way related with the meaning of the song, but just ideas pulled from specific lyrics. I hope these journal prompts give you a little inspiration for your own journaling journey!
