National Geographic Talks About Time Travel, Big Bang

According to one view presented in the newest article at National Geographic...

Time Travel May Occur Unnoticed
"While the new experiment—and our everyday experience—appear to rule out the possibility of time travel, there are still a lot of unknowns about the universe, and physicists can imagine scenarios in which time travel is possible."

This latest piece on time travel should provide inspiration to us writers who love the whole idea of what can be created in the context of time travel stories. I'll be careful not to get down on those who like to write fan fiction based on popular movies or books of the past even though there is just too much of that material out here. After reading this article, what ideas do you have? Did it motivate you to sit down and write something that you can be proud of adding to your growing list of works?

I know that I have been looking forward to the day when I could create a Science Fiction project like this with an attention keeping, intriguing quality to it that gets people really involved in the story. We have all had a book in the past that we just couldn't put down. THAT is what I want a Science Fiction project to be!

How many stories have we seen that are all the same in their construction, ideas, plot, etc? The last REALLY GOOD time travel story written came from Disney in the late 80s when they released "Flight Of The Navigator". I can only wonder about the timing of that release with Back To The Future 2 & 3. Was there any intention for Disney to compete in that day & age with other movie releases?

Carrington Corner would love to hear from other writers about their newest or proudest sci-fi project. What in you rmind makes a sci-fi time travel story good? What makes it outstanding? What makes you sneer and never read one of these works again?
