stories, some that are still being formed, some that went over the transom in the last century
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 [#223]
Let's have one last look at Brianna and Roger, they are so lovely. And I have one last bit of business in the casting department--Fergus, the feral young lad that Jamie takes on as a spy in the court of Louis XV. Fergus is a real piece of work, and his boyish energy [read that 'trouble-making] is the catalyst for several big scenes. Since we're just dreamin' here anyway, I'm going to reach back in time to escort tiny Daniel Radcliffe from his role in 'David Copperfield' to the cast of 'Outlander.'
