Hello and welcome to the March writing prompts for 2022. My apologies for the delay; life has been chaotic and depressing, as you will read in my own entry!
2022 is a year which I can’t wait to get rid of. To me the days don’t seem like they’re zooming by. Instead, it’s been a struggle and tedious crawl to even get to March. I am currently disabled, due to a spontaneous bilateral patellar tendon rupture. One minute I was running with my dog, and the next, bam. I am on the ground from double knee ruptures. My only hope is that I will recover and be able to walk again. And hopefully not take one year to do so, but sooner!
Now let’s get started with the March writing prompts – looking forward to reading all your entries and sharing them as always!

What The 2022 March Writing Prompts are About & How to Participate
The linkups are a monthly get together for anyone with a chronic illness, mental disorder or disability. An opportunity to share, to listen, and to learn from one another through shared writing prompts. I also think it’s a great way to provide insight into life with chronic pain, from many different points of view.
All you have to do is write using at least three of the writing prompts listed below, and publish it on your blog, or to a free writing platform like Medium. Then click on the blue ‘Add Link’ button to add your blog post to this page. Voilà, you’re now part of the linkup party!
2022 March Writing Prompts
- Only one link submission per website.

- Linkups start on the first of every month. There will be five different writing prompts. It will close at the end of each month before midnight. All timings listed are in Singapore time (+8 GMT).
- Pick at least three of the writing prompts to write about. Five is best, of course! 😉 You can write about your latest experiences with chronic illness, or even turn it into an evergreen blog post.

Are you trying to process an event, situation, diagnosis, breakup, conversation or something else in your head? Weighing up the pros and cons, trying to make a decision? Maybe you’re waiting for a school, workplace or institution to process your application.
Are you relying on someone or something more this month? Perhaps you’re trying to rely on yourself and be more independent. You could be relying on hugs, food or some other stimulus to try and get through a tough period in time. Or perhaps you’re sick of being so reliant on your loved ones, a healthcare system or other people’s schedules in order to live your own life.
Are you retreating from an impossible situation, or from toxic people? Perhaps you’re going for a retreat to take some time off to rejuvenate your mind and body. Or maybe you’re retreating from the world due to depression, or for self reflection.
Have you had to cancel any events, meet ups or appointments due to COVID, feeling unwell, or whatever reason? How did that make you feel? Or maybe you’ve cancelled out a lot dates in your calendar, so you can prioritise or focus on a goal or task. Perhaps you’ve cancelled your credit cards, an application, a subscription or something else that you feel doesn’t serve your purpose for now.
Reframing is a powerful tool, especially for getting through tough times and bad days. How do you reframe your thoughts under such circumstances? Have you had to do a lot of mental reframing of late? Perhaps you’re too tired to even reframe your thoughts. Or maybe you’re doing some actual reframing of old photographs, a painting or art piece.
