“The People’s Friend” Writing Hour is held every Tuesday at 11 a.m. on Twitter. It’s a time when we can get together with writers for a chat and it’s always heaps of fun!

Every week we summarise everything that went on right here for those who missed out.

What’s your favourite fictional romance? It can be from a book, film or TV series. 

Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy from “Pride And Prejudice” received the most votes, of course. 

The other 14 votes went to a wide range of characters. Jamie and Claire from Outlander, Anne Elliot and Captain Wentworth from “Persuasion” and Harry and Sally (of “When Harry Met Sally” fame), to name a few. 

There are plenty more romances to be discovered within the pages of “The People’s Friend”, too. 

If you could rewrite the ending of a romantic book or film, what would choose and what would you change? 

What’s your favourite quote about love? Is it from a book, poem or film? 

There are lots of lovely quotes in this thread. 

If you were asked to write a romantic story based in an unusual setting, where would you choose? 

Love can be found anywhere, even in the most unusual of places or circumstances. We’d love to read the unusual love stories that were pitched in the thread! 

Which fictional character have you fallen a little bit in love with? 

We’ve all been there! A reader can dream . . . 

We’ll see you at our next Writing Hour on Twitter — 11 a.m. on Tuesday 21 February, 2023.

Or catch up on our previous roundups.
