Fun for Friday: August 2021 Writing Prompts!

A red vein Indian mallow (Abutilon striatum) plant

It’s the end of July, so it’s time for the August 2021 writing prompts!

The words this month come from all over the place, but there are quite a few summer words tossed in to suit the month. You can focus your writing on the dog days of summer or on the fleeting freedom before the new school year begins, but either way, there are three options to look at separately or all together to see what strikes you!

You’ll also notice that some of the days have something that might be construed as a genre as one of the prompts, but don’t feel like you have to stick with the conventions of that genre. In fact, perhaps the other words will inspire you to go against the grain instead of with it!

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!
