3. Memories
4. Out of the window
5. Sliding doors

 Theme for Anthology 2011 as voted by the members:   LIFE’S A ROLLERCOASTER.

 It was decided that a $100 deposit will be required at our next Anthology meeting which is on the 11th of December 2010. This deposit will secure your contribution to the book.

 The stories submitted by the members will be arranged in alphabetical order.

 Number of words required is approx 10,000 words. This could be in the form of one story or two stories each having 5,000 words each.

 As the theme is depicting life as full of ups and downs you can write one happy and one sad story.

 An outline of the story is to be submitted on the 11th of December.

 Lorraine will send out a sample and guidelines of how to present your outline.

 Lorraine will also update the plan and include a checklist for every meeting.
