I have written two versions of the same story for submission.
To make it a bit different, in the second version I have opened the story with the aftermath of the event and then ended the story with what came before. This second part (i.e. what came before) is definitely more visual and hard-hitting than the first, but I wonder if I am shooting myself in the foot leaving the best 'til last as they might not read on that far! On the plus side, I think it's more interesting to end with the shocker.
I really have no idea which version to submit.
Any preferences to how a story unfolds?
