I store my journal entries as text files, one per day. Every day, I start a new journal entry with the snippet
;dj, which expands to
Prompts: family, friends, home, work, craft, entertainment, embodiment, exercise, diet, skills
## What did I do?
## How am I feeling?
## What do I want to change?
The prompts and headings give me ideas for what I want to write about. I change them on a regular basis, and part of what I want to track is whether my choice of prompt affects my journalling. I feel like some prompts get better results than others.
I wrote my script because I have a radically different prompt for June, and I want to see if it has any effect.
