The New York Times, the National Council of Teachers of English, and the National Writing Project others encourage people to share their reasons for writing by posting on Twitter with the hash tag #WhyIWrite. Here are a few of the many Tweets:

“Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.” ― Benjamin Franklin #WhyIWrite
