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: REAL vs. FAKE
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 January 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 15th December so will get in touch with authors on Friday to sort out logistics.
And that’s it! Enough preamble. Roll out the prompts!

“It’s funny how the colors of the real world only seem really real when you watch them on a screen.”
― Anthony Burgess
“And now you’ll be telling stories
of my coming back
and they won’t be false, and they won’t be true
but they’ll be real”
― Mary Oliver
“I bought a ticket to the world
But now I’ve come back again
Why do I find it hard to write the next line?
I want the truth to be said”
― Spandau Ballet
