Fun for Friday: August 2020 Writing Prompts

August Macke’s “Promenade” (1913)

Even though time feels somewhat meaningless, with all of the days running into one another, only differentiated by weekends, another month has passed. July is wrapping up today, which means it’s time for the August 2020 prompts!

This month, the words are generally random, with a few seasonal words tossed in for good measure. I’m also including a painting by artist August Macke as an additional or alternative prompt in case you need some additional inspiration for your writing. Whether you’re writing poems, stories, or integrating these words into a novel or other larger project, there will be all sorts of interesting combinations!

Check back on the last Friday of each month (or occasionally the first day of a new month, when that falls on a Friday) for my History That Never Was writing prompts!
