Do you find that head hopping is acceptable in a novel? Most of my novel is based on the internal struggles the 3 main characters are going through. Therefore I will head hop from Shannon’s internal dilemmas to Shane’s guilt and Daniel’s anguish. These internal issues are addressed in dreams and flashbacks. They are made external via some of the conversations, but mainly they converse and fight with themselves internally. I have received some comments that head hopping is frown upon…. Any opinions are welcomed.
