(this has been approved by Black Six) So, the Ambage is getting ready to start its next published Anthology (after the successful completion of X:15). However, while the set-up was cool (15 themes, 15 writers, etc.), it was a little crazy coordinating and organizing everything. As such, with this next anthology, instead of having a bunch of themes, we're focusing on a single genre/overarching theme. So you could write for any theme, as long as it fits within the "genre" of the anthology.  Select which "genre" (or genres) you like best--the one with the most votes (or if some are tied and are compatible [i.e. Fantasy/Sci-Fi], then more than one) will be the overarching genre for the next anthology. While the anthology itself is open only to Ambage members on Skype (more information on how to participate will be posted in the main Ambage topic soon), feel free to vote in this poll even if you are not an Ambage member. 


Also keep in mind that we will be doing a Halloween anthology later, in case that helps you decide which theme(s) you choose for this one. This poll will close Sunday, March 3rd, at 11:59 PM PST.Posted Image

I voted for half the options. :lol: C'mon, though, a fantasy / science fiction / artwork-to-story / journeys / supernatural anthology would be awesome.

My vote went on fantasy, which is always the more fun genre to write for. I seriously hope I'll be able to take part this time around. :P

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt
