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 [#816]

...and we're back!

It has been a memorable week: All of the color and whimsy of Anime Expo interwoven with fleeting glimpses of the X Games...a day at LACMA with my daughter...but the most vivid memory is that of seeing 'War Horse' on stage.  It was just as amazing as you would imagine a production with life-size anatomical puppets of horses to be.  And given all that, it is probably a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

I would love to see Henry Ian Cusick in WWI officer's attire [a look that certainly works for every man I've ever seen in it].  I have read a fantastic, sweeping fan-fic that put most of the characters from LOST in the trenches, but as of today, this is as close as I can get with a picture.  We do love our RoyalScot!Des, though.
