Here we go folks. Your assignments are below. Please let me know if you have any questions. If you need more detailed info on the rules of times etc. Please go HERE. But just so you know all times below are in US Eastern time zone.
Pretty please post by the time beside your name so we can keep the chain going. If, by the time the next poster is to go and you haven't posted, you will be forfeit from the chain.
After reading the responses about the story I have decided to not do the copy/paste method. I would, however like the person posting to put the link of the poster ahead of them before their post and the link the person after them, at the end of their post. (Jen, since you are on Twitter you don't have to do that:) That way we will have a chain and if a person wants to go to the beginning, the links will take them all the way through. If someone does forget to do this it is no biggie, just go back to this post and click on the link.
Here is an example of how your post will look.
Link of poster before you.....
Link of poster going next.....
