The 52 Lists Project | Week 1: Goals + Dreams For This Year

The 52 lists project
Alright, so I’m already a little bit behind with this new series, but since one of my big goals for 2017 is to write more frequently, my amazing hubby bought me The 52 Lists Project. If you haven’t heard of it already, The 52 Lists Project is a journal with 52 different writing prompts, one for each week.


I’ve been struggling with this whole being creative thing lately, so I’m using The 52 Lists Project to  push me, especially during those times when I have zero desire to write.

The goal here isn’t to come up with the perfect answers to the prompt or to create lists that are perfectly crafted. Instead, the goal is to be raw and real and just freaking jot down whatever comes to mind.


So that’s what I’m going to be doing and if you’re kind of in that same kind of creative rut, join me! The journal is $10 on Amazon and it’s exactly what I think a lot of us need to help push through our writer’s block. Anyway, here’s week #1.

  1. Live a healthier lifestyle
  2. Try new recipes
  3. Finish paying off all remaining debt

    I have this book and I just looked at it this morning before reading this post and thought to myself you should really start using this book. Thanks for reinforcing that thought. This post came right on time for me.
