Tweets From The Grave: Authors Speak From Beyond | Writer’s Relief

It’s the witching hour, and the darkness is suddenly broken by a pale, sickly glow as the sound of incessant tap…tap…tapping echoes through the night. Oh wait—that’s just a writer taking a late-night break and tweeting! The social media sorcerers at Writer’s Relief have wondered: What if long-dead writers could send us tweets from the grave? Here’s what we imagine our favorite authors would reach out from the beyond to tweet about today! (face-with-tears-of-joy emoji)

17 Tweets From The Grave From Our Favorite Authors—Gasp!

Maya Angelou: There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you. That, and having an alien burst out of your chest. #BothNotGood

Edgar Allan Poe: Watching my fav football team—Go #RAVENS!

Robert Frost: Thank heaven neither path took me to 2020. #Blessed

Lorraine Hansberry: Never be afraid to sit awhile and think (before tweeting!) #TuesdayThoughts

Charles Dickens: I can’t believe I’ve been #ghosted! That’s three times!

Agatha Christie: Miss Marple is going to have a much harder time catching the murderer with everyone suddenly washing their hands all the time. #NoEvidence

George Orwell: It’s even worse than I thought. They now carry Big Brother around in their pockets! #Not1984

Paul Laurence Dunbar: Nay, let them only see us while we wear the mask in the grocery store. #MyPandemicSurvivalPlan

Emily Dickinson: Because I could not stop for death, he had to call an Uber. #RidesHere

J.D. Salinger: You aren’t just phonies. You’re cellphonies!!! #MondayMood

Jacqueline Susann: Just got a #newbook idea: “Valley of the Tweets!”

Gabriel García Márquez: Love in the time of quarantine. #NoThanks!

Jane Austen: They made HOW many movies of my books!? #Clueless

James Baldwin: Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within. But please wear a mask when you go out! #StaySafe

Leo Tolstoy: 50K words in a month? No problem. #20thYearOfNaMo

Louisa May Alcott: I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ghost ship. #HalloweenSpirit

Shakespeare: Definitely ready to shuffle off this mortal coil in favor of a warm down jacket. #BardsOfAFeather

With these dearly departed authors haunting you, you might be interested in something that doesn’t leave you chilled to the bone: Have some fun in the sun and check out what these literary characters are tweeting while on vacation!

“Getting that first poem published was the hardest threshold to cross. My team at Writer’s Relief kept encouraging me…then came the acceptance! We celebrated…then I continued writing, and Writer’s Relief continued doing the wonderful work they do!”

—King Grossman, Writer
