What key to go to with the G7?

I am composing my first bagatelle right now. I decided to do it in rondo form and in a major key. Not only that, but I went for my avoid key, C major. As you can probably tell, I usually avoid composing in C major. Why? Because it sounds boring, Why? Because a hint of chromaticism makes me question whether or not I am modulating to another key.

Anyway, I have a G7 harmony and following that, 4 measures of a first ending with C major harmony. Now, I want to go somewhere else with this G7. I can think of a few keys that G7 can convincingly lead to. G major for obvious reasons is one key that G7 can convincingly lead to, at least if it is in an inversion. A minor is also convincingly lead to by treating the G7 as the subtonic. I can go to F also, if I resolve the G7 to C first.

I was thinking of reserving the minor key for when I get to the C section. So that means that I am leading to a major key other than C major. But it is hard for me to decide whether I should go to F major or G major, or a key not as closely related to C major(and note, I do think of the parallel minor as being closely related but I don't think of the mediant minor as being closely related at all).

Is it possible to add tab to score?

Hello all, this is my first post. 
All i'm asking is if i put a score of a solo nylon acoustic guitar piece in to musecore 3 how do i get musescore to add tab below? I've noticed  many score/tab hybrids have the notes on the thinnest strings are on the tab when playing on the wound strings gives it enough body, is there a way around this automatically rather than having to do it manually? Also, i read of the ability to put straight up tablature in and have musescore add a score, how is this possible?
The score i have is Farewell by Sergio Assad, and i'd like to turn the free tab of Schnee in Istanbul by Carlo Domeniconi in to a tab/score hybrid as found on classclef.
Thanks very much.

On The Railway Tracks - new piano composition - feedback much appreciated

As I wrote this, my imagination took hold and the piece developed into an accompaniment for a silent movie scene.  Will the heroine escape in time?
