I have 5 pov character and need help on how to switch between them. Before i give my way of doing it, to make things easy to follow and understand im going to label each character a letter: Character 1 = A, Character 2= B, Character 3= C, Character 4= D, Character 5= E this post might get confusing, so i will try my best to explain my situation lol These are the two methods im struggling between. Now the 1st method that i was going to do was: A B C D E Then i was gone start all over (A B C D E). What i like about this method is that im able to tell what everyone is doing at the same time instead of jumping back and forth in time. The problem with this method is by the time im finish writing POV "E", readers would forget or think it takes to long to get back to POV "A". The 2nd method i was thinking was: A B A B C B D A I was gone keep switching back and forth between POV, so that the reader wont spend to much time away from one pov. The problem with this method is, from that example above is "Time". I'll be moving back and forth between time. So when one POV character story is moving ahead, another POV character has yet to get there. For Example: A - 2:00 pm B- 2:00 pm A-2:30 pm B-2:30 pm C- 2:00 pm B- 3:00 pm D: 2:00 pm A- 3:00 pm You see how some characters are moving forward in time while other characters has yet to get there. It'll be like some character POV will be taking place during the night and others will still be taking place during the day. I know this may seem confusing but if anyone has any input/suggestions, please help me here. I seriously need it.
