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: AHEAD vs BEHIND
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 21st August 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 21st August so will get in touch with authors on Friday to sort out logistics.
And that’s it! Enough preamble. Roll out the prompts!

“I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I’ve bought a big bat. I’m all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!”
“Remember if people talk behind your back, it only means you are two steps ahead.”
“Perhaps if we saw what was ahead of us, and glimpsed the follies, and misfortunes that would befall us later on, we would all stay in our mother’s wombs, and then there would be nobody in the world but a great number of very fat, very irritated women.”
