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 [#794]

The art of the arched eyebrow is modeled here by our beloved Ian Cusick.

I know an opera singer who is a dead ringer for Scarlet O'Hara when she sends one of her lovely brows heavenward.  Clearly it is not a skill we are born with--to elevate the brows independently of one another.  My friend told me that she spent hours in front of the mirror after she saw 'Gone with the Wind' perfecting the trick.  Gotta wonder where Ian got his technique.
