I know that someone might say, "If you execute it will, anything can be 'good.'" What I'm asking for is more of a general opinion on personal feelings toward doing this. I have a character who, following the death of a very close friend and lover, starts to think back on how they first became acquainted. I show this through a flashback, but it's not one solid stream of flashback. First she's sitting with a friend, and then she starts thinking about the events that immediately lead to their meeting. Then she gets interrupted by said friend who wants to distract her by taking her out on the town. They hang out for a while, but her thoughts, inevitably, lead back to the memory, to her first meeting with the now-dead lover. It's interrupted, again, by the arrival of another character, and it's not until she gets away from everything that she returns to the memory and it finishes up. Does this sound jarring, to you? Would you be frustrated by the constant switch, back and forth, between what the character is experiencing now, and where her thoughts are? Opinions appreciated.
