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 [#230]
Before he was a Monkee, Davy Jones was the Artful Dodger in "Oliver!" onstage in the West End and on Broadway. That role brought him to Ed Sullivan's live televised stage on a Sunday night to do a number with the rest of the cast from the musical. Their performance was somewhat eclipsed by another act, however. It was the first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show of those other cute brits, The Beatles.
