I have recently started my first real project, a fantasy short story, and ran into a problem Y'all might be willing to help me with. At the end of the first chapter, our main character faces off with the leader of the city council. The city exists within a magical glowing barrier and over the years overpopulation has become a problem as well as a shortage of non-renewable materials such as iron; the plans he proposes limits the freedom of the main character too much and he decides to speak up. This whole scene takes place from a third character's perspective, my outline I wrote had me switch to the main character's view and from there he says heretical things which results in his banishment from the city and our chapter ends with the council leader screaming "Seize him" or something along those lines. As I wrote the chapter I realized that when I switched I could only have like 50 or more lines without making it drawn out and boring for the reader; I was running out of content. I couldn't decide if it was worth it, the conflict directly involves the main character and his insight on the matter would be great but with so little coming from his point of view, I am not sure if the shift is worth it or would just confuse the reader. I've wavered on this and still haven't finished the chapter. Any advice? It would be appreciated. Thank you.
