Hey everyone. I have a good concept for starting off my story, but I just can't find the right words and theme to put it down on paper. Hopefully one of you can give me some feedback on it! Without going into too much detail, the story is heavy on time travel. Basically, at the start of the story, the character starts off where he ends up at the end of the story, and is in the process of dying. The body of the story tells the tale of how he ended up there, of course, but this particular scene is giving me some trouble. I want to establish the fact that this story is heavy on time travel without revealing too much of what happens. This character is in a position to explain a lot, because he finds a truth about the world and himself he had been chasing through his entire journey. I want to focus on a centralized theme here as I talk about how close this character is to death. My current ideas are these: 1. Focus on the concept of self. This is my current model, and something about it just doesn't feel right. Basically is focuses on how the character finally discovers who he really is. 2. Focus on the concept of time. This one is iffy because I feel it lays out too much info about the story. Any advice on this matter is definitely appreciated.
