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 [#1225]

AMC has put me on a forced hiatus from the 'Breaking Bad' marathon--Season 5 reruns don's begin until late tonight. So in the meantime, I'll tell you that Wikipedia has once again given me an insight into an actor and his character with comments that Bryan Cranston has made about his childhood--

 "My mom and dad were both broken people, and because of that, they were incapacitated as far as parenting. They weren't capable, and we lost the house in a foreclosure. We were kicked out."

Bryan Cranston is partly English on his father's side, so he qualifies as today's Brit.  He is a huge inspiration to me since he got this 'role of a lifetime' when he was about my age.  I can't wait for tomorrow night's finale. I really wish him well in his life after BB--can't hope for the same where Walter White is concerned.
