“Every man’s life is a fairy tale written by God’s fingers” Hans Christian Andersen

Welcome to the weekend and Day 4 of our journey of 21 Days of Journaling in July! I am not going to add video today but I will be sharing preparing a few YT Journaling/Planning videos today if the odds are in my favor! Meanwhile, enjoy the weekend, catch or rest up tomorrow and I will see you on Monday for the next series post!

If you have any questions for me on journaling or about this journey you would like me to address on video- I would love to answer you or address your question. Just leave a comment below and I will check it and possibly tackle it on one of my upcoming posts!

Thanks for being here…Life is not always like a fairy tale…BUT, it can be today- enjoy your journaling journey- As you wish!

*A quick update- your PDF printout is missing Prompt 5 in the original format. Pop over here to print out that page to add in if you have printed out the prompts. Otherwise…if you are following online- no worries!

What is your favorite fairy tale? Do you have one? If you’ve ever dreamed of toads turning to princes or enjoyed a tale of imaginative proportions you will enjoy today’s prompt. Don’t be intimidated- because today we have a Fairy Tale challenge so to speak. First let’s look at the definition and then we can see where it leads.

fairy tale
1.a story, usually for children, about elves, hobgoblins, dragons, fairies, or other magical creatures.
2.an incredible or misleading statement, account, or belief: His story of being a millionaire is just a fairy tale.

Write your own Fairy Tale- you’re the star, or give yourself a bit part. Share a message or lesson you’ve learned about life, love or even fairytale expectations. Go wherever the prompt takes you…don’t worry about doing it right. Give yourself fairy wings and fly with it!


1. Doodle in your journal a magical creature of your choice.

2. Collage images and words that evoke a fairytale feeling.

3. Write about your favorite fairy tale and share why it has meaning for you.

4. Write about one of the many writers of fairy tales, and explore what inspires you in their writing style.

5. Any combination of the above as you feel inspired!
