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: GOOD TIMES vs. BOOGIE
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. Remember: stories don’t have to be dark and traumatic to be powerful.
You have until midday Friday 19th February 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 19th February so will get in touch with authors on Friday to sort out logistics.
And that’s it! Enough preamble. Roll out the prompts!

“And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
They danced by the light of the moon.”
― Edward Lear
“Freaked out, dropped my phone in the pool again
Checked out of my room hit the ATM
Let’s hang out if you’re down to get down tonight
‘Cause it’s always a good time.”
― Carly Rae Jepsen
“So when I’m tripping my feet, look at the beat
The words are written in the sand
When I’m shaking my hips, look for the swing
The words are written in the air.”
― Lykke Li
“I write in my house, at my desk, where I have Christmas lights strung over it to try and convince me that I’m having a good time. I can’t really write anywhere else.”
― Kate DiCamillo
