Today's Lit. Daily Pick

easteri'm in the back of the car, sucking my chlorine hair and watching with sleepy eyes out the window. brown dirt is soon ochre and we are nowhere in particular yet. we are going to the atheton tablelands for easter. i fall into a broken sleep on my sister's warm shoulder and when i wake up we are there.
it is nighttime and my cousin is only still a baby and she cries from inside the house (which is really only a very large shed). out of the car the air is like freezer air but fresh and crisp like cold water. my eyes become wide at the rolling of the hills around us, the living green they are, the horse paddocks, the shapely trees. there is a loud, insistent buzzing of myriad thumbnail sized insects slamming themselves against us, and walls, towards the light. they scare me and i go inside, under blankets. i am still tired and softly i ease back into sleep on a mattress on the floor.
when i wake up i am the only one awake, even the sun is still sleeping. when i'm the only one awake i like

What is my "Daily Pick"?

:pointr: "Lit. Daily Pick" is a literature deviation that we have come across in the last few days that we truly enjoyed and believe others will enjoy, as well. Each day, a new piece is chosen and featured for 24 hours. At the end of the month, we feature all the pieces from that month in a news article here on dA!

Have a piece or writer you love and want us to feature?

Send us a note with a link to their deviation!

(Please note: A deviant may only be featured once a month.)

Greetings, everyone! :)

My apologies for the mess of a page and for the insane amount of emptiness (and messages coming  into your message centres). I'm in the process of getting all the Lit. Daily Pick archives moved over, and it's taking a while. I've been at this project for over a year now and I'm almost at my 500th feature! Although worth celebrating, it also means that transferring everything over is taking a bit, so please bear with me! I'm hoping to get everything squared away by the end of the week and having the group functioning properly.

In the meantime, feel free to join the group and/or add it to your watch! I'll be posting my daily picks through here now to make my page less crowded and be able to keep tabs on all the beautiful pieces I've featured over time. Spread the word if you'd like. The more members the merrier! I appreciate all your support and can't wait to share some new lit. picks with you.

All the best!

o_o; that you picked a story written whilst feverish is interesting. Should be fun to see what the rest of the world will think of it. =p

Haha, it's an older pick I'd chosen over a year ago. I'm just adding it to the group now for archives :D
