Vacation Tweets From Your Favorite Literary Characters | Writer’s Relief

With 328 million active accounts, it seems almost everyone has a Twitter account these days. Perhaps Shakespeare’s character Polonius was on to something when he stated, “Brevity is the soul of wit,” because—even limited to 240 characters or fewer—some tweets can be pretty clever and funny. As the summer heats up, the social media experts here at Writer’s Relief have imagined the latest vacation tweets from some of our favorite literary characters.

15 Vacation Tweets From Our Favorite Literary Characters

Ugh. Kept getting beach sand in my glass slippers. Switching to glass flip-flops! —Cinderella, of fairy-tale fame.

Can’t wait for my summer getaway in Amity!—The Shark, Jaws.

Saved big by getting the All For One, One For All theme park hopper pass!—D’Artagnan, The Three Musketeers.

A whale-watching cruise? You can’t be serious.—Captain Ahab, Moby Dick.

Woohoo! I’m going on an adventure!—Bilbo Baggins, The Hobbit.

Grabbing a bite to eat after my swim.—Hannibal Lecter, The Silence of the Lambs.

To beach, or not to beach, that is the question:
Whether ʼtis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of burning sand,
Or to flail arms within a sea of fun…—Hamlet

Time for some fun in the sun. NOT.—Edward Cullen, Twilight.

I thought we’d have a nice holiday by the water, or attend some Quidditch scrimmages. But no, Hermione wanted to see the world’s biggest library.—Ron Weasley, Harry Potter series.

When will I unpack my suitcase? Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow.—Macbeth

Waiter asked if I wanted fries. I told him how I like my potatoes: Boil ’em, mash ’em, stick ’em in a stew.―Samwise Gamgee, The Lord of the Rings.

It’s wedding season. Why no invites?—Tyrion Lannister, Game of Thrones series

I love the little cafés here, but the vegetarian choices are so limited. Bah, hamburger!—Ebenezer Scrooge, A Christmas Carol.

This Seattle weather is crazy but the coffee is great! Good thing I have my umbrella and a spoonful of sugar.—Mary Poppins, The Mary Poppins series

I had to leave the nude beach. I just couldn’t take the BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU signs.—Winston, 1984.

While we’ve imagined these literary characters on vacation, not every fictional protagonist is having a day at the beach. So if you’re dealing with a bad case of writer’s block or your latest story came back from the proofreader covered in red-pen edits, remember: There are also literary characters who are having a worse day than you. #Smile!
