I have this short story. It's "finished" in the sense that I have told my characters story and there is nothing left to tell. HOWEVER, I feel that it is lacking in some kind of way (that and it keeps getting rejected.) I've fiddled with the ending and am satisfied with that part... but now I'm thinking about timeline. Its basically about a boy's descent into madness, starting with an obsession from his childhood(time travel and Superman) , and its developing over time until the end he skews reality (he actually believes he's Superman) to the point of him killing himself as he tries to achieve Superman status.. The timeline as it is now is chronological; this happened...that lead to this.... that made him do this, etc. a year later, I find it boring. I thought about maybe going backwards.... starting with the END and then taking readers back to how he got that way. still linear. now, at 11:00 at night and exhausted from the day, i think "he's obsessed with time travel, why dont i chop up the events and take the chronology out of it!?" pros? cons? My creative faucet has been running dry all week! This is the only dribble of creativity I could squeeze from it!
