Autumn Journaling Prompts

It’s the end of September, and soon leaves will be falling 🍂 Pumpkin spice will be everywhere ☕ And kids will trick-or-treat 🎃

Today, I’m going to share with you some simple-yet-profound journaling prompts and ideas for the fall 🙂 🎑

1. Fallen Leaves Haiku 🍂

Haikus are Japanese poems that were traditionally written about nature. They are written in 3 lines, with a 5/7/5 syllable count. Such as:

I do like autumn
with flavors of pumpkin spice
right in my coffee

Your prompt is to write a haiku about the fallen leaves 🙂

2. What do you want to let go of?

Just like the trees let go of their leaves, you can begin to consider what you will let go of this year. It could be a grudge, a doubt, or a bad habit.

Whatever it is you’d like to drop like a fallen leaf, write about it in your journal.

3. List your autumn goals

On the other hand, you can write about what you want. There are still three months in the year, which gives you time to plan some new projects or plan how you will wrap up old projects before 2020.

What are your goals before year’s end? You are more likely to achieve your goals if you write them down.

Also: Learn some autumn doodles! 🍁

There are some simple doodles you can do in your journal this autumn! You can find step-by-step instructions on Instagram by searching “autumn doodles,” such as:

And you can also find step-by-step instructions on YouTube, such as this video by The Petite Planner. You can do a Google search or Pinterest search, but there’s lots of goodies out there 🙂

What are your suggestions for autumn journaling?

Take care and write on,

  1. Autumn is my favorite season, so I appreciate your tips for journaling. Yari, I’ve never thought about adding doodles to my journaling process, but I think I’ll look into this. I also like the thought of letting go of some things in this season, as I usually focus on what I am grateful for. Fall is however the time I reevaluate my goals and priorities, so it’s a great time for culling what no longer supports. Blessings ♥

      Happy journaling, and blessings to you as well, Jacquie! 🙂
