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.

A Brit a Day [#80]

I can hardly believe that I have stuck with something like this blog for 80 posts, and that I have posted everyday since I began A Brit A Day. There is a good reason why both my children suffer from ADHD--it appears to be hereditary.

This week I'm going to focus on Happy, Shiny CoStars Making Friends. Sigourney Weaver and Alan Rickman have made at least 2 movies together, and both were about as different as 2 films can be. In 'Galaxy Quest,' Weaver played a hot leading lady. In "Snowcake" she portrayed a high-functioning autistic. In both cases, she has a great on-screen chemistry with Rickman, not the steamy romantic kind of chemistry but simple human chemistry.
