2022 Words for Creating and Being: November

leave a comment »

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

As the days get darker and night falls quickly, we shift and transition. It’s a time when we begin to tap into a different pace, and one where creativity can flourish. If you’re in need of a daily practice, this month there’s Austin Kleon’s 30-day challenge or you could even try your hand at NaNoWriMo, the popular monthlong novel writing challenge.

Or you can just sit with these words and let them marinate. Give them space, give them time. And do the same for yourself.

1. attend

2. difference

3. tiny

4. dance

5. conclude

6. jagged

7. bark

8. honor

9. storm

10. circle

11. border

12. bare

13. waste

14. line

15. shelter

16. fog

17. endless

18. distinguish

19. horizon

20. serendipity

21. collect

22. spot

23. inquire

24. converse

25. join

26. retreat

27. require

28. draw

29. linger

30. ponder

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. Be sure to check out the new Creative Fuel Collective platform too!

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

October is Inktober, so there are a lot of people doing daily drawings this month. Maybe it’s time for you to join in too?

And yes, #2 is definitely a McSweeney’s reference.
