Quarantine Diary Prompts—How to Journal about the Historic Events of 2020


We are living in historic times. Are you recording your experiences for future generations? 

It’s easy to forget to write about what life was like at the start of 2020, especially because so much has happened since January! Below are some journal prompts to jog your memory.

  • Record when and where you were when you first heard about COVID-19.
  • Reflect on your initial thoughts and feelings about the virus.
  • Write about the New (Albeit Temporary) Normal

Depending on where you lived or other circumstances, you may have experienced unique disruptions to your daily life. Even if the disruptions are minor, record the ways in which your life changed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
