Is it okay to use a journal writing prompt?
Sometimes people wonder if it’s “okay” to use a journal prompt for writing. The answer is…yes!
Journaling prompts are frequently used by authors to get creative juices flowing. Writing prompts are also used in creative writing classes as warmup exercises or for practice writing something different.
Journal writing prompts can help you start journaling without worrying about what to write about. Once you start writing with a prompt, you may decide to continue writing on another topic, too.
There are many different ways to journal. One way involves writing in a stream of conscious style, like a brain dump, but other ways use writing prompts.
You may want to use a writing prompt some days, but write about whatever is on your heart another day. That’s fine, too.
Journal writing prompts for March
The journal prompts are listed out below. They are also included in your free printable March journal. The prompts are all conveniently located on a single page in your PDF, too. Keep scrolling past the journal prompts to the download information section for previews of the printable journal.
If you’d rather write in your own notebook instead of on the printable journal, that’s fine. Check out this post on the best bullet journal notebooks that make journaling fun and enjoyable. Writing on cheap, flimsy paper is a real bummer – do yourself a favor and get a durable notebook with paper that’s easy to write on.

For the best journaling experience, I recommend printing the pages on bright white 32# paper. It’s smooth to write on so your words can flow without scratchy, annoying paper. It resists feathering and bleeding, too, so any doodling, drawing, or lettering you do will look great. (Tired of junky pens? Discover the best pens for journaling in this post.)
Like all planner and journal printables on The Artisan Life, these printables are for personal and classroom use. This includes use with your own students, therapy clients, Scout groups, library groups, etc. as long as you are personally organizing the activity and not charging specifically to participate.
You are not licensed to redistribute the printed pages or digital files to others for use with their children/students. Please refer your friends and coworkers to this page so they can download their own copies.
I hope you enjoy using these March journaling prompts and discover something new about yourself! Make sure to check back in soon for April journaling prompts. New prompts are usually posted mid-month.
