National Day on Writing was celebrated yesterday, Oct.20th. Edutopia, Figment, The Learning Network and National Writing Project teamed up to encourage everyone everywhere to tell the world #whyIwrite. Simple, isn’t it?
I’m going to post my favourite tweets under the hashtag #whyiwrite. I hope it gets more and more people inspired to start writing (or typing). I can think of many reasons why one should write, but here are my picks from Twitter:
NaNoWriMo – I write to learn, to feel alive, to change, to let my imagination run wild, to reach others, and to reach myself.
chaneldubofsky – because i’ve always wanted to know what it’s like to be someone else.
karthick62 - Can’t fly.but the writing gives the feel
AliDMC - So I can commit murder or make love to who ever I want without the unpleasantness of jail or guilt.
shfarnsworth – I write to model for students. To be a better teacher. Add my voice to the mix!
LouMorgan - Because I never trusted the primary school teacher who told me nothing good ever came of day-dreaming.
ifanyi – Because most people don’t really listen.
grammasheri – to connect, clarify, create, collaborate, connect, consider, and to continue
davidproenza – Because I can’t sing or dance.
wordstohangfrom – it’s write or lose my mind. i choose the controlled insanity, thanks.
ElliottMrs – writing opens doors like books do. writing gives birth to life, whether it’s real or fake. as life goes on, we write.
Here is my contribution:
@eltbakery – I write because I see stories and possibilities everywhere. It would be selfish to keep it all for myself.
