Sign up and log into this forum using your McMaster email/ID. Then, post a ~40-100 word follow-up to the preceding post, adding to the collaborative story (read more about what this means here) that we're developing together. You can contribute multiple times, but just not with one post after another. Feel free to also add your personal artwork or stock images to your post to compliment its contents, so long as they're appropriate and you have the right to use that image.
The story ends either when a collaborator feels as if we've reached a natural point where they can write the conclusion, or the deadline of February 21 has passed—whichever comes first.
What are you waiting for? Adding to the chain should only take a few minutes, and the draw of the prize aside, you'll also be making your mark in a cool, collaborative project that'll act as a time capsule for how the McMaster community connected through our creativity during these COVID times.
To start the story off, the first writer must continue writing from the following first sentence with a ~40-100 word follow-up, and then we can continue taking turns to tell the story from there:
Alex knew that she was lying, but went along with the farce anyways.
