Wanna know what we’re doing? Clicky right here to find out how we Flash Face Off.
THIS WEEK’S PROMPTS:
The two opposing themes for this week’s Flash Face Off are: INSIDE vs OUTSIDE
Use the prompts below and/or the theme to write – in any way that inspires you.
Pick a side. (Or write about both!)
Pick an image and/or a quote, or more than one, or a mix of the bunch.
It is tooootally up to you, so long as your writing has some kind of connection to this week’s themes and is no longer than 500 words.
You have until midday Friday 15th May to think, write, and post up your story to our Flash Face Off forums.
PLEASE make good use of these workshopping forums to offer feedback to others, receive feedback on your own story, and tweak/edit as much as you like. This really is the absolute best way to develop your writing (and it’s a really nice way to be part of your writing community).
We’ll be picking a handful of stories to be read on our live Flash Face Off online event at 9pm on the 11th May so will get in touch with authors on Friday to sort out logistics.
And that’s it! Enough preamble. Roll out the prompts!

“Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win.”
― Stephen King
“Grown-ups don’t look like grown-ups on the inside either. Outside, they’re big and thoughtless and they always know what they’re doing. Inside, they look just like they always have. Like they did when they were your age. Truth is, there aren’t any grown-ups. Not one, in the whole wide world.”
― Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane
“How many slams in an old screen door? Depends how loud you shut it. How many slices in a bread? Depends how thin you cut it. How much good inside a day? Depends how good you live ’em. How much love inside a friend? Depends how much you give ’em.”
― Shel Silverstein
“Every moment happens twice: inside and outside, and they are two different histories.”
― Zadie Smith, White Teeth
