Writing Prompt October 7, 2010

In an interview with The Times in 2002, Mr. Vargas Llosa said that it was the novelist’s obligation to question real life. “I don’t think there is a great fiction that is not an essential contradiction of the world as it is,” he said. “The Inquisition forbade the novel for 300 years in Latin America. I think they understood very well the seditious consequence that fiction can have on the human spirit.’”

Give some examples of seditious consequences caused by whatever acts you might think of in the next few moments. Write them from the point of view of the human heart.
