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 [#664]

Native Englishman and Etonian Atticus Ross is part of the Academy award-winning composing team of Atticus Ross and Trent Reznor [recognized for 'The Social Network' soundtrack].  Reznor is also, of course, the genius behind Nine Inch Nails--if you go see 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' look for a nod toward NIN in the form of one character's T-shirt.  The GWTDT soundtrack is integral to the film, absolutely every inch of it.
These days, Ross lives in the US.  Along with Reznor and Mariqueen Maandig, they perform as the band How to Destroy Angels.  The band covers Bryan Ferry's 'Is Your Love Strong Enough?' for the closing credits of 'Dragon Tattoo.'
