Starting Essays

I want to start my essays in the summer, much like many of us, but I also want to try and finish most of my essays during the summer. My school usually starts around August 20th-25th but it seems like the essay prompts are not released till August. What can I do to get ahead on essays without the prompts? Or when does commonapp update the prompts? Please let me know. Thanks!

Common App has already confirmed that last year's prompts are going to be used again this year. https://www.commonapp.org/blog/common-app-2020-2021-essay-prompts
