Friday Notions #79

The purpose of this blog is to help writers with their work, to be museful or perhaps instrumental in unclogging thoughts. To this end, I am providing a daily question, beginning sentence, beginning paragraph, prompt, and word-of-the-day to stimulate your “little gray cells.”

Question: Do you feel there are degrees of perfection?

Sentence: Once they had lain together, but that was long ago.

Paragraph: In the year 2178 the true uprising began. For several decades, women and children had been leaving the Middle East, Africa, Pakistan, and India until there were only men left to rule and kill themselves. In democratic societies around the world increasing numbers of havens had been established for these long suffering refugees, and a covert network of sympathizers had volunteered to retrieve those from the very worst of places. Private monies funded everything, but the previously downtrodden quickly emerged strong and stalwart, eager and perfectly capable of earning their own way and then some. After millennia of patriarchal ruling, which had been a dismal failure, the main goal of the women of Earth became focused on returning the planet to the caregivers; thus, abolishing war, crime, and weapons forever more.

Prompt: Name a person who repulses you.

Word of the Day: pretermit v.t. 1. to let pass without notice; disregard.  2. to leave undone; neglect; omit.  3. to suspend or interrupt. (RANDOM HOUSE WEBSTER’S COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 1991)

If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
