"Moving, like traveling, brings an air of excitement to one's life. You become comfortable around strangers, and you realize everyone has an interesting tale to tell. There is a sameness there on top, yet subtle differences are just under the surface. That is where I mine for stories. If you are a writer, you are a wise person to listen -- to collect. I do not enjoy talking about myself in those situations. I gain nothing, but their stories are indeed the gems. No writer can develop a story, a situation, or characters as rich as these. Certainly, it is no coincidence that the best writers are former reporters who went out to gather a story and returned with a notebook full of notes.

A Long Good Walk
Ron Meszaros
A nine-year-old boy, frightened by an overheard conversation, sets off on a remarkable self-sacrificing journey to shoot the man who would kill his grandmother, and by doing so would save two lives. Including his mother’s. But the obstacles that lie hidden in his path are not of this third grader’s understanding. How he copes with them and overcomes the nearly impossible task makes this day a day like no other. Along the way, he is befriended by an odd assortment of people who have no idea of his heroic odyssey, and in turn pose problems and lessons, life changing. His unique quietness, inquisitiveness, and resilience are his lone weapons against the forces that lie in his path. And it all happens one spring day in small town Barberton, Ohio. The day of a long good walk.
