You can exhale now; I'm actually not going to talk about working on one book for twenty years (hopefully). But I would like your input on a story that covers twenty years. (As in, the story starts with the MC at twelve, and ends with him at thirty-two). To be sure, some years get skipped over, and some get less attention than others. But the main events of the story are scattered across the two decades, and at this point, I'm narrating them pretty chronologically. I can't seem to think of many books that cover this long of a period (aside from a couple Dickens, but I'd like some different models). Do you know of any good examples where this was done well? Or does it just seem an unwieldy length? Thanks for your thoughts!
