I'm thinking of writing a short story with absolutely everything flipped over. Has anyone seen the music video of The Scientist by Coldplay? It's (sort of) like that.
Sample:
He was falling through darkness, surrounded by sceams, wails and murmurs. Slowly he fell onto the floor, slamming his knee on a chair. Scampers of people filled the air as he failed (miserably) to dodge the silver bullet. A bulky man pointed the gun at him...

Oh darn. Is it a good idea?
