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 [#1155]

Sometimes it seems like the entertainment industry moves at a glacial pace.  A year ago this month we were joyously steeped in illicit uploads of the three great Shakespeare histories that Tom Hiddleston had done for the BBC and the London Cultural Olympiad.  Today we Americans are still waiting on the PBS broadcasts of the same to happen this fall.

Also last July, Tom was famously showered with the love of his fans around the world as he traveled from one location to the other making 'Only Lovers Left Alive,' and we fans enjoyed a bounty of pictures and home videos. A year later, and very few of us--outside of those who may have gone to Cannes--have seen the movie.  It's so hard to waaaaaaait!
