If Great Writers Had Twittered...

I've never held a contest before.  But I thought this might be fun.  The rule? Apply Twitter (140 characters or less) to the world's most famous novelists, thinkers, playwrights and artists.
The purpose?  Fun, silliness and it's Friday. 

Shakespeare: #CMarlowe: Brevity is the soul of Twit.

CMarlowe: #IWroteHamlet: Was this the facebook that launched 1000 apps?

Hemingway: I have to write shorter sentences?

Tolkein: When you suffer writer's block, call in the Eagles.  
C.S. Lewis:  @Tolkein...Or Aslan.

J.K. Rowling: @Tolkein and @C.S.  there's always the sorting hat.

Plato: We weren't supposed to create actual caves where we stare at virtual unreal versions of the real things. 

Add your own in the com box.  Thanks to Larry D for correcting me on the length of Tweets.
Winner gets twitterpated by me.  (I'll link to you in a twitter post if you have a blog, and reference you here if you do not).

Dickens: It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. I know, b/c I read it on Wikipedia.

Descartes: I tweet, therefore I am.

Faulkner: Whoever imagined this restraining medium of 140 characters in order to present one's thoughts and ideas is the perfect model of a total idio

Hemingway: RT @Faulkner Ha! Ran out of room!

Yes Larry, I'd hoped for more participation. Guess people weren't feeling as inspired as you. I love the Hemingway tweet!

Leaving a comment is a form of free tipping. But this lets me purchase diet coke and chocolate.
