Do you keep a journal – or wish you could get one started? Literary Mama wants to help.
Three times a month, I’ll post a writing prompt. Open a notebook and write for 10 minutes. Don’t worry about grammar or punctuation – just write. Then let the writing simmer and your mind wander for awhile.
And who knows? Maybe you’ll discover a character for your next short story or a theme for a narrative essay. Or maybe you’ll use the idea to create a special holiday card or photo album for someone in your family. However you decide to use your journal entry, I know you’ll enjoy re-reading it months–and years–down the road.
Given the choice, which super power would you prefer to have:
Ability to fly
Ability to teleport
Ability to read people’s minds
Ability to time travel

Journal Entry: Write a story with your child. Cast him/her as the superhero and ask “What evil deed will you make right today?”
