This Is #WhyIWrite

October 20, 2011 was the National Day on Writing. Authors, students, teachers, bloggers, kids, and parents everywhere celebrated the reasons they are writers. The Twitter hashtag #whyIwrite was created for last Thursday's celebration and readers and writers continue to post ideas like:

"To share. To think. To heal. To amuse. To escape and give escape. And because I simply can't imagine not. That's #whyiwrite" (posted by gregpincus)

"Like Stephen King said, "Who says I have a choice?" #whyiwrite" (posted by napolitanoann)

"#whyiwrite I write because I read. I don't ever want the world to run out of words" (posted by thebookmaven)
