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 [#186]

There are plenty of photographs of Eddie Argos with whiskers, including his infamous pencil-thin moustache of years ago. But Eddie himself admits that every time he tries to grow a beard, it turns out "a bit shit." This picture illustrates one thing we know best about Eddie, paraphrasing his own words--God gave him all the facial hair he was meant to have above his eyes.
