Flash Face Off Prompts (w/c 22nd February 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: HOME vs. AWAY

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 26th 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 26th February so will get in touch with authors on Friday to sort out logistics.

And that’s it! Enough preamble. Roll out the prompts!

“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.”
― Edith Sitwell

“And from the first moment I saw you
There was such emotion
I’m walking on air
Just to know (just to know)
You are there (you are there)”

― Mark Perjanik

“As she healed, the women changed tactics and stopped their berating. Now they brought their embroidery and crocheting, and finally they used Ethel Fordham’s house as their quilting center. Ignoring those who preferred new, soft blankets, they practiced what they had been taught by their mothers during the period that rich people called the Depression and they called life.”
―  Toni Morrison

“I’m restless. Things are calling me away. My hair is being pulled by the stars again.”
― Anais Nin
