Where have you been; where are you going?

I’ve just completed reading Two Steps Forward by Sharon Garlough Brown. In it, the characters are challenged to answer the question Where have you been? And where are you going?

“If you don’t know where you’re going any old road will take you there.” – Lewis Caroll

Or, as Dolly Parton said, “If you don’t like the road you are walking on, start paving another one.”

We need to know where we’ve been in order to know where we’re going.

Grief can take us along a dark and shadowing road, with dread around every corner. But there comes a time to see ourselves walking out into the sunshine and take a new and better fork in the road.

Choose the light and leave the shadows behind.

After a week of careful plotting and making notes on the characters as they revealed themselves, finally, the first chapter is written. Wahoo! Love it when a new book is underway.
