#microstory "Writing the future"

"I can't quit writing these things," Dave said.  They are too moribund because they hurt people, he thought..    Then he cried out, "My pen is physically harming people."

Dave believed what he wrote came to pass even though any sensible person would say it was a coincidence or a series of coincidences.  But he didn't believe in coincidence.

What did you do when the rational world broke down?  Things that didn't make sense happened everyday.  But why then did he keep writing?  Why did he continue in Vishnu's role?

Ronnie, who commented under the pseudonym in honor of a deceased commenter (whose name had been Donnie) went to the police with his list of crimes.

The police laughed at him and sent him on his way.
