Overview

Some people just don't want to share intimate details about their thoughts, feelings and lives—at least not with others in a class or group. That's where Unjournaling comes in. All the writing prompts in this book are entirely impersonal but completely engaging—for both kids and adults. Just a couple of examples of the 200 writing prompts on widely varied topics: Write a paragraph about a girl named Dot, but use no letters with a dot (in other words, no i or j). Why on earth would Yankee Doodle stick a feather in his cap and call it "macaroni"? Come up with a plausible explanation.

The book includes sample responses to all of the questions—a helpful tool for anyone who gets stuck with a topic and wants to see that it can be done!
