Okay so is there a general rule of thumb or something for time skipping in stories. I honestly try not to use them much because, for example, there's a book series called Sword art online and the series is about a thousand players getting stuck inside a virtual reality video game where if you die in the game you die for real. they do a couple partial time skips and one major one that all together add up to a basic 2 year leap where most of the details and interesting story could have been placed. This has always peeved me and normally when I do a time skip I don't count it as one because normally it's too like the next morning and that happens from the end of the chapter to the beginning of the next one. however, i find myself having trouble coming up with mid ground content for my story. so I'm thinking of putting up a time skip of maybe a couple weeks and explaining what's happened throughout the following chapters. Nothing eventful to the plot will have happened in this time truly, not that I can think of. I just feel like putting a two week time skip in the story to a month one would be a bit too much. is it acceptable if it's for the good of the story or should I just try to come up with material for this time.
