Diarist prompts

I’m looking for a daily or weekly source of writing prompts. I’d like
prompts that tend toward self-discovery rather than fiction, and I’m
considering using http://www.diarist.net/spark for everyday or every-other-day

The “If…” Project: Tough questions each month to make writers reach
deep within and really examine our thoughts, our memories, our values,
our beliefs.

That sounds really good, but the website isn’t functional. I remember
seeing the If book before, but I haven’t seen it lately and I don’t
know if Dominique can find a copy. Then again, judging from the Amazon page on If, it looks like it contains a lot of fluffy questions as well. I guess you can’t be serious all of the time. =)

Hipster PDA: Month view

Being able to quickly see my schedule for two months totally, totally
rocks. My iPAQ didn’t have the screenspace for something like that,
but my 3×5″ pack of index cards with some inserts from an organizer.
In particular, aforementioned monthly templates make planning
get-togethers so much easier. I can print index cards for these too,
but then it’d be a hassle to design the template and print it
back-to-back. Anyway, this totally rocks.

(I also had another epiphany earlier: we’re actually planning
gimmicks! We have a social life! We have a barkada! Nifty. Now I just
need to make sure I keep in touch with other people I know, too…)

問題はどうして難局に当たるかである。 The question is how we will bell the cat.
