I'm currently finishing up the first draft of my first novel. Looking back for the redraft, it's looking like I have an issue with perspective; while the rest of the novel takes place entirely from one point of view (bar a few flashbacks from a different one), my first chapter switches between that and another POV. Initially, I didn't think this was an issue, but I'm increasingly thinking it's a little jarring to suddenly go from two viewpoints to a single one - the trouble is, if I simply chop out the other perspective, the "action" of the opening (a break-in) happens entirely off-screen as my POV character goes about her normal daily life, until right at the end. First; is this actually a problem? Would writing the first chapter from multiple perspectives but the rest from a single POV be too jarring and/or promising a certain style that the remainder of the book does not fulfil? Second; if I were to excise the alternate character's scenes, would there be a good way to re-insert them, using a prologue perhaps? Any opinions on this would be helpful, cheers!
