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 [#251]

Once upon a time there was a lovely young lad named Alex Turner [right] who started a band with his mates called Arctic Monkeys. And their band became world famous, seemingly in the blink of an eye [a hard working, dogged, determined eye]. Despite all the acclaim, and they deserved it because they were [still are] truly amazing, when they first made for American shores, they were basically still too young to drink in the bars.

Raise your glass, then, in a toast to Youth absolutely NOT wasted upon the young!
