Initial project structure (auto-generated)

Your project is alive!
This file is what your collaborators will see when you invite them to your project. You'll probably want to change this and write something about your project, so they know what's going on. Click the small white 'Edit' button above to make changes to this file.
Here's a quick primer on how Penflip works:
Right now, you're looking at the project page for your new project. The project page is the headquarters for you and your collaborators - you can write new content, edit existing content, invite collaborators, have discussions, browse changes, see project activity, export your project, and more.
This is a 'Book' project, which has a collection of files. Each section or chapter is a separate file. When you export your project, the files will be combined and turned into a presentable book. Some files have been created to get you started:
- **About.txt**: an introduction to your project
- **Contents.txt**: the contents of your book, like a table of contents. Each new file you create will automatically be added to Contents.txt, but you can remove or rearrange them as necessary.
- **chapter1.txt**: a sample chapter that would be included in your book
You'll see 'Edit' buttons across the project. Clicking any of these buttons will take you into a distraction-free 'writing mode', similar to Google Docs and other writing tools. Everything is written with [Markdown](http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/). For an explanation on why markdown is awesome for writing, [read this](http://nerdplusart.com/markdown-is-the-future/).
Every project has a master version. Whenever you invite somebody to your project, a new version will automatically be created for them, and all of their changes will be made on their own version. When a collaborator is ready to submit their changes into the master version, they'll create a Merge Request.
## Merge Requests
A Merge Request is a group of changes to your project. All merge requests go into the master version. As the project owner, you control the merge requests: you can accept them, ignore them, and comment on them to suggest changes. When you accept a Merge Request, the master version of your project will be updated with those changes.

# Start in Life
I was born in the year 1632, in the city of York, of a good family, though not of that country, my father being a foreigner of Bremen, who settled first at Hull. He got a good estate by merchandise, and leaving off his trade, lived afterwards at York, from whence he had married my mother, whose relations were named Robinson, a very good family in that coun- try, and from whom I was called Robinson Kreutznaer; but, by the usual corruption of words in England, we are now called - nay we call ourselves and write our name - Crusoe; and so my companions always called me.
I had two elder brothers, one of whom was lieutenant-colonel to an English regiment of foot in Flanders, formerly commanded by the fam- ous Colonel Lockhart, and was killed at the battle near Dunkirk against the Spaniards. What became of my second brother I never knew, any more than my father or mother knew what became of me.
