December 24, 2014 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that includes a vision. You can write your own personal vision and “fictionalize” it in the sense that you write it as if it already has come to pass or is unfolding right now. Or you can write the vision of a character. Dream big. dream bold.
Casey read feminist memoirs, all those published about Second Wave Feminists who came of age in the sixties and seventies. She read of their overflowing bookshelves and of their writing tools from out-of-date typewriters to word processors to desktop computers and laptops. She aspired to acquire that body of accumulated knowledge called philosophy and theory, that equity in the head, not just the “click” of an enlightened consciousness newly aware of male oppression in reality. She would plunder used bookstores for out-of-print feminist classics to acquire them for her bookshelves and restore a transformative praxis to oppressed females everywhere.
