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 [#244]

Jason Isaacs was absent the week we saw the cast in print. A scan of an in-depth interview would have been nice perhaps. But this item [above] will not lay down and be still; it must be seen and enjoyed. It's a French poster for the film 'Peter Pan' featuring Captain Hook, or as he is known in the local language, Capitaine Crochet. Visions of my grandma as Tinkerbell! An afghan in the shape of a crocodile! A trip to Michaels' for yarn, anyone?
