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 [#819]

British actors can get away with touching themselves about the face, neck, shoulders and chest in a way that American actors just can't pull off.  I think because we have the expectation that proper Brits will not be sensual they come across as quite sensual when they show any sensuality at all.  Or something like that.
