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 [#449]

Alex Turner with Arctic Monkeys at SOMA, an all ages venue in San Diego, September 2009. My daughter was 14 at the time and we took her with us--her favorite song was 'Fake Tales of San Francisco'--and she spent most of the show sitting on her dad's shoulders. Let me tell you, it wasn't just her line of sight we were trying to protect. All ages clubs are much, much rowdier and moshier than 21 and ups, in my opinion. Babysitting was invented for a reason--to keep underage teens busy while the grown-ups go out.
