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 [#306]

Gift #6:
Read with a child on the internet to learn more about the Christmas Truce of 1914.

[In the top photo, Dan Radcliffe wears a WW1 uniform for the film 'My Boy Jack,' but that is not meant to imply that Jack Kipling was involved in the Christmas truce.]

Gift #7:
I'm taking Christmas Day off. Fervently dream of world peace, everyone!
