My story at present does contain a fair amount of time travel, the effects of which increase as the story progresses and leading to a large amount of deaths. Due to the paradoxes that would be invoked by such actions, I've placed safe guards to ensure that people don't go around meeting themselves etc etc. The real problem is in real life. I need to put the rough events of my story onto paper and in some sort of order. So I decided to place the events that had happened so far into the traditional lines. Here is an example: MC gets up -> MC looks at clock -> MC goes back to bed But then I thought of something. There needs to be more than one line. So I had the idea of placing the events in a "bubble" and connecting them together via string or something. This would allow me to easily show the various effects time travel has on the world, as well as work out how to reduce the number of timelines I create. So here is the question: Linear and ordered timelines or the radical Timey-Whimey bubble?
