I apologize for this very confusing post. In my fantasy novel, I decided to start the book four months in and then jump back in time. The first main character has been washed up on a river bank, two kids find him, and the story begins. After a little while, it goes back in time and stays there until the story reconnects by explaining how he gets in the river. Then, it skips to later. Here's a diagram: 1,2,3,4,5,6 chronologically. It appears in the book as 4,5,1,2,3,6 After it goes back in time I also introduce new viewpoint characters. Is this a bad battle plan, is it brilliant, or does it depend on my execution? Thanks!
