The Light and the Little Girl, an enchanting short film: "In some ways The Light and the Little Girl can be seen as a film about the loss of innocence. The little girl is hopeful, curious, and determined to capture the light, but in the end, realizes, as the filmmaker states, “there are things she loves that she cannot posses”. "

201 Writing Prompts

You may, like me, have been fascinated by mummies as a child. My first book was Christiane Desroches-Noblecourt's book about Egypt. I couldn't read anything, but I really liked the pictures of the mummified fingers, complete with bandages and rings. Howard Carter's 1922 discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun is a famous example of historical discovery, though very few people remember the poor Egyptian peasant who actually came upon the tomb and rushed to tell Carter that he was digging in the wrong place. You've also got to wonder what the soul of the boy-king thought, as his beautiful tomb was ripped apart by Howard 'the Handyman' Carter. Here's a poem about it by Edward Lucie-Smith, of yesterday's post fame. If you enjoy this, or this theme - which has a lot going for it as a related text idea and for creative writing, you might like these two dramatic monologues: one by Edward Thwaite,  'A Monologue from the Valley of the Kings' and Thomas James', Mummy of a Lady Named Jemutesonekh. Both play with the reader's need to discover, tantalising them with the prospect that, though they may try, and plan, and dig, they never will.
