Remember when several of us worked together to write A Rose By Any Other Name?
I got to thinking we should do it again. Might be fun? What with the summer slump I know many are in thick, now's as good a time as not. Right?
So you remember how it works. My start to our progressive story is below. Take turns, in comments, filling in the next excerpt. Come back as often as you like, but do allow others between your segments, and add just a few sentences at a time.

We'll let this run at least a week (unless the story gets incredibly long, and I see a good spot to cap it off and jump in to write the conclusion). I'll announce more about time frames and the final piece later.
In the meantime, have a blessed and awesome Fourth!
