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 [#1001]

In case you've been under a rock and missed it, Tom Hiddleston has been blogging his entire trip to Guinea to see the work that UNICEF, his favorite charity, is doing to increase sanitation, education and children's overall health.  In the field diary that he has published online, he has shown himself over and over to be the man of intelligence and compassion that we all gave him credit for being.  What a sweetheart.  And don't think for a minute that he hasn't raised awareness [and donations] with his words and deeds--I've seen several kids on Tumblr talking about how his inspiration has nudged them into a life of volunteering and service.  Let's hope they follow through.  Enjoy Tom's UNICEF blog here.
