I am a big fan of flash fiction prompts as a regular ritual for staying fresh and keeping in practice. Some of my favorites are:

Friday Fictioneers
Sunday Photo Fiction
101 Words
Yeah Write
What Pegman Saw
The Daily Prompt

I know there are a lot of others. What do you like?
But it's the truth even if it didn't happen.

I spend way too much time on Reddit, but I justify some of it by writing or reading on r/writingprompts. It's not officially 'flash fiction' per se, but the limit for one comment is 10,000 characters, so if you want your piece to fit in one post then you have to stay below that. 
I welcome critique on my 1st round FFC17 story titled Data Point

I've also participated a fair amount in r/writingprompts.  It's a good community, especially for newer writers or writers who are trying to build up a habit of writing regularly.  The prompts are all over the place, in terms of subject material, especially if you look beyond the prompts that make it to the front page of that subreddit.  If you're looking for constructive criticism, it isn't really the place for that.  If you're looking for light comments and feedback, you can get that there BUT the vast majority of stories odo not get read by many people.  Some writers find that frustrating.

Good luck to everyone in the contest!
