"All the weird stuff was my stuff"

Author Christopher Golden visited the Horace Mann Middle School this week.
A Framingham native, he met in the morning with more than 60 students before holding a writing workshop. He started the lecture by urging them to do what they love in life and not to let dreams of wealth cloud or defer the dreams that matter. 
"I know the focus is on how do I get a job where I can make a lot of money so I can have whatever I want," the 45-year-old said. "But what if the whatever you want is the way you can make a lot of money?" 
Golden said stories, fiction or non-fiction, have an enormous power to influence life. 
"Go back to the beginning … the images that were painted on cave walls told a story," he said. "Legends and myths and oral traditions that Native Americans told around fires that were passed along, passed along, passed along before they were ever written down — stories."
