Writing Prompt: The Chain Story: Crying Foul

By Janice Hardy, @Janice_Hardy

This week’s prompt is a chain story! I’ll give you the first line, and someone else comments and builds off that line. Next commenter will build off that line, and so on.

In the event of two commenters posting at the same time and sending the story in different directions, just pick the line you like best, or try to incorporate both if you can.

Marcello wasn’t one to cry foul, but every man had his limits.

Let the fun begin.


  1. Outraged, Jerred had thrown both his hands in the air and sworn he had no Intention of seeing Ellie.

  2. But Marcello knew his brother better than that.

  3. He picked up his phone in irritation, dialed his brother's number, and waited.

  4. But the dumbass never picked up.
