You enter the dark cavern. After your eyes adjust, you can see a plethora of critters scurrying around in front of you. The only sound is condensation dripping from the stalactites into the pool below. At this point in your adventure, turning back would be a great disappointment to your colleagues. Ahead of you in the cave are three possible paths. The first one drops off quite treacherously, but you can see some gems glimmering at the bottom. The second leads straight back and is quite level, but you hear some foreboding growling coming from further down the tunnel when you try to enter it. The third path is really narrow and small; you would have to crawl on your hands and knees to traverse it. None of these advancements looks particularly appealing, but your conviction tells you to press onward. Which do you choose?

Or perhaps you have a paper on music or for Theology and you want an insider's opinion. Either way, I'd love to help you out. Let me help you find your writing adventure.
