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 [#226]
John Le Carre is one of my favorite authors, and 'The Tailor of Panama' is an outstanding book, so I had high hopes for the movie, but it was a serious disappointment. Among other things, they totally botched the ending. It's a John Le Carre story--it's not supposed to end well.
The brightest spot in it was young Daniel Radcliffe, pre-'Harry Potter'. Can you believe this is Dan less than 10 years ago?
The young lady is Lola Boorman, daughter of director John Boorman.
