Im currently writing a novel that I intend to be somewhere around 90000 words in total. My story is written from the viewpoint of three different characters, whose actions affect the main plot even though they never actually meet. in one of the chapters, one of my characters visit the capitals marketplace to investigate a missing shipment of weapons, and learn what he needs from a merchant. I have been thinking about writing said chapter from the viewpoint of the merchant instead of my main character, to build atmosphere and let the reader view the world from through the eyes of one of the commonfolk, while at the same time letting them see my protagonist from the outside. I intend my protagonist to come off as extremely arrogant and selfish, even though he actually just want the best for the realm, as revealed by his thought process in his other chapters. afterwards, I never intend to use the merchant again. How would you as a reader feel about a chapter like this? Would it work in a novel of this size? I intend it to be soomewhat like the chapter "Captain of the Guard" from A Feast for Crows, but George RR Martins story span several books and thousands of pages, so that might be why he can get away with it. Is there anything I should be concerned about with such a chapter?
