How do you fine folks feel about a break in storytelling pace. The short story I am working on is recounted at a consistent pace. But in the story there's a long, drawn-out clash between police and citizens (in the style of the barricade revolutions of 1848). I don't want to describe the fighting, neither in detail, nor through the experience of the protagonist. Would a brief description of an event that happens over the course of a longer period (longer than the story's timeframe up until that point). The story would then resume its normal pace at the end of the fighting until the conclusion.
