We, the undersigned writers and all who will join us, support Occupy Wall Street and the Occupy Movement around the world, the statement reads on the Occupy Writers Web site.

Some authors have posted their observations and thoughts.

Blue Angel author Francine Prose posted her thoughts of when she visited Occupy Wall Street.

I saw conversations taking place between people and groups of people whom I've never seen talking with such openness and sympathy in all the years (which is to say, my entire life) I've spent in New York: grannies talking to goths, a biker with piercings and tattoos talking to a woman in a Hermes scarf, she wrote on the Web site.

Duncan Murrell of Harper's Magazine wrote about his observations of Occupy Chapel Hill in North Carolina.

I walk by you as you wake, and you don't notice me, but I am whispering you a prayer, Murrell wrote.

Lemony Snicket, the pen name for A Series of Unfortunate Events author Daniel Handler, wrote the appropriately titled Thirteen Observations made by Lemony Snicket while watching Occupy Wall Street from a Discreet Distance.

It is not always the job of people shouting outside impressive buildings to solve problems, Snicket wrote in point No. 10. It is often the job of the people inside, who have paper, pens, desks, and an impressive view.

In point No. he wrote, Someone feeling wronged is like someone feeling thirsty. Don't tell them they aren't. Sit with them and have a drink.
