Short Story Ideas

I had this idea about a short story. I wrote it one way and then I read a story and thought about writing it another way. The idea of the story is so specific that I couldn’t sell both. I’m debating about writing it the second way and see if it’s better than the first way. I don’t know. I’m holding back, again, because whichever one seems better is likely to cause me to toss the other one or be required to significantly redraft it.

Maybe the first story was an idea story and the next one will be the one that works. Still debating. I’m working on shorts and a general outline on something while I go through and edit a novel. Then I’ll send it off to a sensitivity reader, edit again, and then send it to my beta reader/editor.
