The Prompt

I am looking for a fictional story set in a world where people are able to make fairly accurate predictions 24-72 hours into the future.

I want to hear a story set in a world where are people able to check roughly what will happen in the next 24 - 72 hours. Predictions could be made through science, technology, supernatural or any other means. It could be something everyone could access, or something that is only available to (or even through) certain people. How much people use this, and how reliable the predictions are is up to you, I have specified fairly reliable as a guide but you could equally have them as completely accurate predictions of events to come, or more as predictions of possibilities, whatever works best for you. This states 24-72 hours so you can choose a more specific window of prediction with in that, you could have predictions being made just one day ahead, all three days, or somewhere in between. I would like a fictional story featuring fairly reliable predictions about the near future. The perspective you chose and the story you tell is entirely up to you, this could be the focus of your story, or it can be the background setting in which your story plays out, you know I love prompt pushing interpretation, so let your imagination run wild!

Done! I wasn't expecting to write anything like this when I woke up this morning, but then I happened onto @sarez's feed, and his entry, and.... here's mine:

Thank you for a fun prompt,

OK, @calluna. Finally, inspiration has hit, and the universe of time has allowed me to begin writing. Sorry it took so long. I missed upvoting the post, but will compensate, I promise, by upvoting your comments.
Right now, I'm going to resteem...still days to go for the contest deadline. won't let me resteem. Have you written a reminder post?


AHHHHHHH YEAH! Can't wait to see what you have in store this time! <3

My entry, finally. Good luck to all the writers!
Disaster Watch: #Tell a Story to Me

My entry:

I categorically refused to write science fiction, and I got out of my comfort zone. I hope I wasn't mistaken.

I'm turning in what I have even though I'm really not satisfied with it. 8-)
