Meet Sherlock Holmes and Maybe Other Literary Heroes in the Future…


Sherlock

Recently I enjoyed the Harry Potter Exhibition (see here: https://mandyevebarnett.com/2014/02/03/creating-monsters-to-delight-and-scare/) so was intrigued to see an article advertising a touring exhibition for Sherlock Holmes. This is an exciting concept for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle enthusiasts. The exhibition will tour until 2017.

See the following links.

This tour raises the question, will all literary heroes have their own exhibtions in the future? We could enjoy the intricacies of our favorite characters in a tangible, hands on way. Would the exhibitions remain excellent or would the promoters begin to get on the bandwagon? These exhibitions are not cheap to devise, create or transport thus ticket prices will remain high. Hopefully the quality will not suffer as more tours are created.

Which character or characters would you like t0 ‘meet’?

Holmes

Today’s quotes have tobe from Sherlock himself of course.

“The world is full of obvious things which nobody by any chance ever observes.”

Sherlock Holmes -The Hound of the Baskervilles

‘You see, but you do not observe. The distinction is clear.’

Sherlock Holmes  -A Scandal in Bohemia

Our prompt will be a crime mystery sentence to draw your reader in.

My response:  With quivering hand, she plunged the knife deep into flesh.

Happy Writing!
