A fork in the road is defined as “a metaphor, based on a literal expression, for a deciding moment in life or history when a major choice of options is required.” First, make a list of all the forks in your life that you can remember, large or small. Then pick one fork-in-the-road experience from your list and write about it. When did this fork occur? What were the choices facing you? How did you decide to go left or right or was it decided for you by someone else? Do you look at this fork as a positive or negative in your life? If you were able to go back and change your decision, would you? Why or why not? Write about a significant fork in the road.
