stories, some that are still being formed, some that went over the transom in the last century
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 [#663]
A week ago, I saw Daniel Craig [today's guest Brit] and Rooney Mara in 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.' It starts to get confusing with the novel in my head as well as the Swedish language film and both of its sequels and now this, but I think I liked it a lot. I especially liked this scene and how scared Craig's character was to have her stitch him up. But for me, the best thing about the movie was Trent Reznor's and Atticus Ross's soundtrack. And guess what? Atticus Ross is English. More on that tomorrow.
