The "Brit a Day" series

What does a months-long parade of attractive British men have to do with fiction, you might well ask? These gentlemen have inspired some lovely scenes, part of the life I live in my head. Over time, some of these scenes reach out to one another and begin to form a story. For the present, each one of these pictures provides a writing prompt for me, a way to keep me writing with a sense of passion and narrative, even when the stories are not yet fully formed.

I love looking at these two photographs side by side. Both images, from the Wall Street Journal.

Make-your-own Model Throne

Print this on 8 1/2 by 11 paper, cut it out, fold it up, and tape it. Then you will have a model throne for you desk, bedside table, dinette, etc.
