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 [#118]

This gorgeous piece of fan art featuring Desmond [Henry Ian Cusick] from 'Lost' is called "Unstuck" and it is by artist Dr. Mikey. I actually own a print of this painting. Take a close look at the linework and shading--it's all made up of words, and to a stunning effect.

I found--or I should say Mianne of the Sistahs found--the piece below on Deviant Art [I think] and I fell in love with it. I can happily credit Neanderthal Jam for the nice work. Earn trivia points if you know the name of the sailboat.

It's the "Elizabeth"
Now, what was Libby's last name???
That was a question on an Ultimate Lost Quiz I found on's good but it's HARD...part 2 especially.

Can't say I know what the correct answer was, either...
