start swinging

When I begin a book, I take up a machete and start hacking my way through the jungle, not to clear a trail for others, rather to find a path through for myself. Will anyone follow? Have I lost my way? I never know the answers to these questions as I write; I just keep swinging the machete.

Thank you for this particular passage. As I begin my own book and a co-authored book with a teenager, I pray both will at least be markers along a path that always leads to Christ.
