Flash Face Off Prompts (w/c 18th January 2021)

Wanna know what we’re doing? Clicky right here to find out how we Flash Face Off.


The two opposing themes for this week’s Flash Face Off are: COMBINE vs. SEPARATE

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 22nd 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 22nd 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 really boils down to this: that all life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tired into a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one destiny, affects all indirectly.”
― Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Each of us is born with a box of matches inside us but we can’t strike them all by ourselves.”
