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 [#762]


I love the fact that Alfred Molina is included in this round-up of personalities making the pitch for getting your GED.  Part of his intensity comes from the gravitas of those eyebrows--one reason why some people have seen more than a passing resemblance to Eddie Argos.  I once saw a comparison of three pictures--late-blooming Neville Longbottom [Matthew Lewis], Eddie, and Alfred Molina.  It was like three generations of a family.
