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 [#410]

My daughter returned from her trip last night, and I asked her if she recognized much of the Champs Elysees from all the times I've drawn her into watching the final stage of the Tour de France. She said of course! It would be hard not to have memorized every one of those hallowed cobbles--the final stage always ends in Paris with humpteen circuits of the famous course.

Last year, my favorite Manx Missile, Mark Cavendish won the final stage of the Tour. Ooooohhhh is it July yet?.....
