30+ Writing Prompts for the Honesty Project

Jennifer of BlagHag.com suggested that a few writing prompts might get the ball rolling for people participating in The Honesty Project. Since I love asking questions, I wanted to give it a go! Feel free to use any (or none) of these ideas to get started on your blog, journal, video, or any other format you find most fun.

30+ Ideas and Writing Prompts

  1. Many people say the most influential persons in their lives are their parents. That’s just too predictable. What unexpected individual has had a significant affect on how your life is headed today?
  2. What have you missed out on because of fear? What different sorts of activities or experiences have you chosen not to do? Does fear play a part in your decision-making?
  3. Do you consider yourself to be sexually confident? Do you think you have a healthy outlook and perspective on what sex is for and what it means on a deeper level? What is that?
  4. What’s the story of your website? How would you feel if it was deleted tomorrow?
  5. What was the biggest lie you ever told? Did anyone find out? Did you benefit from it?
  6. Have you ever acted in a way that went against your values/morals/ethics? In other words, have you been a hypocrite?
  7. When was the last time you inspired someone? Feel free to toot your horn ;)
  8. When was the last time you were truly enraged? What caused that reaction, and was it deserved?
  9. Do you have any addictions or obsessions? Maybe you’re a fangirl or an obsessive shopper?
  10. What’s the hardest thing you’ve had to overcome?
  11. Picture the worst sexual experience you ever had… now either tell us about it or tell us if it was bad because of inexperience, awkwardness, or a dislike for that individual.
  12. If you’ve converted from one religion to another (or left religion all together), was there  a “honeymoon” phase after making that decision? How did you feel for the next few months? Has that feeling changed?
  13. What traits would someone have who was the opposite of you?
  14. How would you feel if you lived single for the rest of your life?
  15. If you could do something without anyone knowing what you did, what would you choose and why?
  16. Which has had more impact on your life: your situation/environment or your choices? Why do you think so?

  18. What are the top 5 causes your support and why?

  20. Do you think dark periods of life provide the best opportunities to learn? Why or why not?
  21. Describe some of the things that make you odd or quirky
  22. List the top 3 reasons you make a great friend. What about 3 reasons you’re a poor friend?
  23. What trip have you taken that changed your outlook on the world? What did you see?
  24. How does your belief system impact the people around you?
  25. Are you more of a giver or a taker? What does that mean to you? Is one of them always positive or negative?
  26. What “10 Commandments” do you follow in your life?
  27. When someone else cries, what do you do? Are you a problem-solver? Do you cry with them? Do you tell them to suck it up?
  28. Which fundamental aspects of your personality have remained unchanged since you were a child?
  29. What is your main goal at this moment? What is the consequence if you do not achieve it?
