“A writer’s notebook is not a diary. Writers react. Writers need a place to record these reactions. That’s what a writer’s notebook is for. It gives you a place to write down what makes you angry or sad or amazed, to write down what you noticed and don’t want to forget. A writer’s notebook gives you a place to live like a writer.” - Ralph Fletcher



A sleeping giant awoke, not only in New York City, but in almost 850 cities, including sister protests worldwide. I speak, of course, of the growing Occupy Wall Street protest and the collective rage and frustration of the unemployed, the workers, the sick and the students who received the short end of the stick in the wake of the 2008 financial meltdown while Wall Street and the investment class walked away unscathed. But if you look around, you can see this movement is not anything new. It has been taking place in Greece, Spain, Chile and, to a certain extent, the Middle East—we in America have been a little late getting on the train.
