What Causes a Boy to Want to Write?

I had a very exciting experience today.  Some of the boys in class could not stop writing.  They wrote through snack break!  I know this is a rare occurrence, so I asked myself, "What makes boys (in particular) want to do more schoolwork?"  Inspiration.  For writing class each of the students was given a unique picture.  They were able to imagine a story about the picture.  Today was only oral retelling, but the joy of creating had the boys writing when class was over.  When some of the stories are finished, I will post them.
