Wanna know what we’re doing? Clicky right here to find out how we Flash Face Off.
THIS WEEK’S PROMPTS:
As a Christmas treat, we’re giving you a whole butt load of festive prompts to gorge yourselves on:
TURKEY vs. SPROUTS
PENGUINS vs. POLAR BEARS
SHEPHERDS vs. THREE KINGS
REAL CHRISTMAS TREES vs. FAKE CHRISTMAS TREES
Use the prompts below and/or the theme to write – in any way that inspires you.
Pick a side. (Or write about both… or write about them all!)
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 18th December 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 18th December so will get in touch with authors on Friday to sort out logistics.
And that’s it! Enough preamble. Roll out the prompts!

“A lovely thing about Christmas is that it’s compulsory, like a thunderstorm, and we all go through it together.”
― Garrison Keillor, Leaving Home
“It was the beginning of the greatest Christmas ever. Little food. No presents. But there was a snowman in their basement.“
― Markus Zuzak, The Book Thief
“Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance, but you still catch my eye.”
― Wham! Last Christmas
“Most kids grow up leaving something out for Santa at Christmas time when he comes down the chimney. I used to make presents for the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.”
― Jeanette Winterson, Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?
