the sly day shifted about

This is my favorite sentence that I read today:  “From all sides, the sly day shifted about; and the mistral shook the sky like sheet metal.”  (from “The Serpent of Stars”).  Jean Giono is always very poetic in his novels, and “The Joy of Man’s Desiring” was a great read as well.  “The Serpent of Stars” is a slim yet square little book, perfect to take on a plane this week.

Then my character called into the Outside.

This week I finished a story about a voodoo (or voudon?) doll, and one with a simple game showing the trap my character is stuck in.  Then I stumbled upon two separate stories online that, in very different ways, consider these same themes.  Sometimes I feel like, when I’m writing something I’m really absorbed in, I draw things with the same energy into my field.
