In this short paper, we present some reflections after a workshop exercise where flash fiction was used as a method to both encourage creative thinking around technology use, and to probe and reflect upon empirical data. The workshop was part of a project exploring the unique ways in which people develop strategies for balancing and/or blurring work and life demands. We describe how we used flash fiction to run a creative exercise with participants and, based on our experience, discuss the potential of this technique for developing interaction scenarios and design concepts, and for reflection about empirical data.
