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 [#686]
Rickman contemplates the time.
I bought a watch with left-over Christmas money at a Japanese thrift shop I affectionately call the 99 Yen Store. The watch devoured three changes of battery in less that two weeks--but I've been mulling over the advantages of wearing a broken watch [first brought to my attention by Eddie Argos some years ago]--when you are cornered by someone you don't wish to talk to, you can always be running late for another meeting. A glance at your wrist, a look pleading for forgiveness...and you're off.
