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 [#293]

I've decided that the character Adrian from 'After the Rain' [left, as played by Ian Cusick] is my new imaginary high school boyfriend that I never had. Actually, I shouldn't say that. I had one great boyfriend in High School. His name was Richard, and he didn't even go to my school--he went to the tony private school down the street--but some weeks we still saw each other almost every day. We lost touch when we all went away to college. I think by then we were mad at each other over something--I can't remember what, though. Richard K., you know who you are--so where are you now??
