  • You can take the story in any direction you want to, but remember that the aim is to end up with something readable, so please consider the next contributor before going too crazy.
  • You can add as many lines as you want to the story, but not consecutively. Please wait for someone else to add another before you add again.
  • You can see the compiled story as it goes along on the Litro site – we will be updating a page with the story as it stands daily.
