Argh. I have this great time-travel storyvery political, very much a possible tear-jerker, I thinkand I’m sure once I figure out what to do with the damned time paradox problem that has stumped me, it’ll be even better for the struggle, but right now, it’s annoying the hell out of me.
It doesn’t help that no book I’ve ever read has dealt with time travel and the attendant paradoxes in quite the way I mean to deal with them. Someone probably has done it beforeit’s been argued that SF has been completely mined out, after all, though I don’t believe it’s true#&151;but anyway, for now, I am struggling with that. Right now it looks like I have to give up either paradoxes, or the focus of my story, and I’m not willing to give up either, or to write off the stumbling block either.
Ah well, it’ll make for a better story in the end. I’m sure it will.
