Right now I'm writing the second part of my three part novel. It has various POV characters with their own journey continuing where the first part left off, but like the first part, I'm planning on cutting between their stories to switch back and forth. Short example: The soldier is planning an attack and tells about war. ***** The colonel searches for the cult, tells about his love life. ***** The soldier attemps his attack but fails, he studies treason. See, it was either switch back and forth or tell ones complete story before going to the next MC until they all come together for the climax of the part. Which method is more effective?
