          1. Yes, this is a chain of stories continuing from one person to another. 7 people have written 7 parts of the story one after the other. Now I am waiting for part 8 of the story. One need to read all 7 parts and come up with a continuation. So you want to try ?

          2. I’m completely lost trying to read the story. Are you guys tagging it a certain way so I can go into the reader and read it easier? I read 2 parts of Grandpa’s Haunted House, then could not find the third part. Sorry, I’m lost.

          3. I just finished “Itchy Quill” is she the last one? Do I start after her? When is this part of the story due? (Just wondered because it is getting late here in the SW USA).

          4. its almost exactly opposite of the globe 😀 Its 5.30pm here 🙂
            So you just need to add the links as in the previous posts. So that they will get a ping back of the latest part. I don’t know why it didn’t get copied when you added yesterday night.

  1. And now I’ve reached the bottom of the thread. That’s was a long scroll. 🙂

    Here’s the summary for part 11:

    Maggy finds out the truth about her grandfather’s death and learned more about who she is. Rob has sworn where his allegiance lies. Nita ends the story a little differently…

          1. its upto you. If you want to start a new day of story telling you can continue with that. Or else you can finish it. Let me know

          2. Hey ! so sorry to ask you but have you changed the sequence of the list showing on your blog? I was supposed to write after Ruth of I-read but in summary section it is showing ‘waiting for Rashmi’…..Am I suppose to write from where wandering story teller left? If yes then I will write now. So sorry I am reacting late as I was not able to check wp today.

          3. Sorry for the misunderstanding. I thought I already told you to start doing the part when story teller finished. Ruth is busy I guess and haven’t heard from here from the beginning of this chain. She was supposed to start the chain.
            Anyway really appreciate the extra extra effort you put in to write this part even though it could wait!!

          4. Misunderstanding was on my part dear….I was relying on the sequence showing on your post & thought you missed Ruth’s name. Actually I was off wordpress through out the day otherwise could have cleared the doubt earlier. Inconvenience is regretted. I disturbed your midnight sleep.

          5. I thought at some point she might reply. Guess, Ruth is busy. And I believe this whole thing disturbed your sleep! And you are already up!

          6. To tell you the truth I woke up with a thought….omg I didn’t write summary of the part 9 in your blog ! and just see busy in replying people…still pending….I will do it now. 🙂

          7. haha.. don’t take it too seriously 😀
            Anyway I usually add a small summary. I didn’t add it yesterday night as I didn’t read the story. Now its added too

        1. Please do check 🙂
          And that is very sweet of you. Thank you for the sweetness 😀
          Anyway I don’t have the link, it is direct uploading. So it can stay beautiful without my name on it.

          1. yeah rite..very sweet of me..then send me the word file where you consolidated and remove that file..I’ll upload the new one..its not that much work.. 🙂

          2. yup I did..but I cannot edit it..I need the word file where you consolidated the chapters..and you need to remove this two copies of the same story doesn’t get uploaded..

          3. facepalming!! I have to send you the edited one…can’t upload from here..and hope you like my editing 😉

          4. hahhaa… 😀 you know I was thinking..when the last writer is finished..why don’t we repeat the chain with another round..a bigger story..if everybody is agreeable that is..
