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 [#549]

Eddie Argos singing on British radio with the English Traveling Wilburys during the station's fall Harvest Festival of 2007. Celebrities were encouraged to bring in canned food for charity. A rambling aside to "Glam Casual" went something like this:

"I brought in a tin of peas for the Harvest Festival. I was going to spray paint it silver, make it all glam. Then I just removed the label. Somethings are simpler than they seem."
