In working on my fantasy novel, I've found myself in a difficult situation. I have read time and time again that going from one person's perspective to another is bad form, and while I can understand and agree with this philosophy to a certain degree, I feel that my novel needs to include the perspective of more than one character without completely getting into third-person omniscient point of view. Is it okay to switch the perspective character from time to time, particularly for different chapters? i definitely have a main character, but I don't think I can incorporate her in every scene, and when she's not there, I need someone else to follow. What kind of tactics do you use for situations such as this, and how might you advise me to solve this problem I'm having? Thanks so much, and I apologize if a topic like this has come up before. I did a search for "head hopping" but it didn't yield any real results.
