can you have in a novel? im talking about third person POV in this case. I mean, without it being too confusing to keep them apart? Is there a general rule about this? I have 3, 4 if you consider the little part of a char that figures in a side plot... i dont think that it is confusing or is it? or even if its not, is it still too much? does it make it less personal or somehow ruin the story? I stick to the same characters POV in each chapter, does that help? What are your opinions on this?
