stories, some that are still being formed, some that went over the transom in the last century
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 [#1165]
For years now, Comic-con and my beloved Tour de France have ended on the same day, leaving me with a big fat case of the blues. To combat the void, I'm making a super-duper multi-media post featuring some of my favorite images [none of which were made by me] from James May's and Oz Clarke's wine--and beer and whisky--adventure series[es].
I've watched them on Youtube twice [there are three sort-of seasons of it] and would happily watch them again. Yes, when I finish them, I feel a slight sadness, but for the fun of watching these guys bum around France, California and Britain, I'll happily put up with the hangover.
