2022 Words for Creating and Being August by Anna Brones

New month, new prompts in the 2022 Words for Creating and Being series.

Use them as creative prompts, use them as a starting point for conversation, use them for contemplation. They may spark something, or they may sit and marinate. Let them be whatever they need to be.


1. edge
2. voyage
3. partner
4. curiosity
5. repair
6. flourish
7. learn
8. facilitate
9. opposite
10. emotion
11. situate
12. make
13. offering
14. challenge
15. help
16. excite
17. participate
18. observe
19. lush
20. improve
21. empathize
22. conspire
23. thrill
24. project
25. momentum
26. brighten
27. behold
28. prepare
29. interact
30. lethargic
31. believe

What happens when we sit with a word? When we unpack it? When we investigate every single letter? When we consider what’s behind the definition? That’s what these words are for. They are intended to create space for contemplation, they are an ask for you to invest time in the creative process in all of its forms.

You can find previous monthly lists of prompts here.

As always, these monthly prompts and a lot of my other work are made possible thanks to supporters on Patreon.
