Ok, since I have like four mcs in my novel, I want to show the story from all of their points of view. Which would be easy enough, if they were together through the majority of the novel. In the first novel of the series, they don't start working together until near the end. Also they are born near the beginning of the novel, and its ending is when they are in their early twenties. So I was thinking about doing it like this, in chapter A I would show a few years of Character A's life and then in chapter B I woud show charater B's life for a few years. So on and so forth until they meet up. Though I have a couple worries about doing this. One is that it might end up reading like four different stories put together. The other one is that like for example, chapter A and chapter B would be happening in the same time frame. They would both be showing the same five or so years of their respictive character's life. Now I wouldn't be really repeating the same stuff, since they're in different areas, but I'm worried about confusing the reader. Also I might have to include the time and date at the beginning of each chapter. So what do you guys think of this idea.
