In one of my current projects, the first chapter is the major event that sets the story in motion. I introduce both the protagonist and the antagonist, as well as establish the driving-force behind the MC's actions. The chapter ends with the MC making up her mind about what she's going to do - the decision to go on the journey that encompasses the entire plot of the novel. In this first chapter, said character is completely family oriented. One of the driving forces in the story is that she loses her family here, and she wants revenge (cheesey? perhaps, but it's my story). We hear her as she cries out for both of them, and pleads with the antagonist to spare them. The other driving force is in something that happens to the main character as a result of the antagonist's actions. A disability, if you will. At the end of this chapter, the protagonist is pretty evenly split - she wants to avenge her family, as well as herself, for what this man did to her. However, between chapters 1 and 2, there's a time jump, and the character is now 10 years older. At this point, motives seem to have shifted. While she still misses her family and feels the need to right the wrongs done to her family, she is more-so driven by the more selfish force - the disability that's been plaguing her for the last 10 years. Would this kind of shift in character motivation - this change from a more honorable motive to a more selfish one - be jarring to a reader? Other than this shift, nothing happens in the 10 years that can't be summed up in a few simple sentences. Her journey is her trying to find someone, and in all those ten years, she yields no results. But would a reader do a double-take upon seeing a character jump from "I'm doing it for my family," to "I'm doing it for me"? Thanks in advance for all replies.
