30 “Harry Potter” Journal Prompts

As avid believers in the power of journaling for self-care, we often find ourselves searching Pinterest for a fun journal prompt. There are times when we are just not sure what to write, so we turn to a journal prompt for structure and content. This works until the journal prompts all start to look alike. Many prompts have a few words changed, but essentially, the outcome is the same. This got us thinking about what journal prompts we would like to use, so we have crafted 30 Harry Potter journal prompts for a new and magical twist on journaling.

1. What Hufflepuff qualities do you represent?

2. What would your seven Horcruxes be?

3. Who is your favorite character and why?

4. What magical creature would you most like to have as a pet?

Writing about the wizarding world has always been a dream and passion of mine. I definitely feel as though Harry Potter has shaped the person I am and has influenced me in so many ways. You will always find me with a book in my hand, sipping tea, and contemplating my next story to tell.
