Hello This is quite a hard thing for me to describe so apologies if it does not make sense. All the books I read typically revolve around one main character and are usually 3rd person narratives with occasional 1st person inner-thoughts. Now this is all well and good but I was wondering how I would handle two or more main characters and their own perspectives/inner thoughts in rapid succession. I guess an example of what I am referring to would be if you had an Oceans 11 scenario where multiple characters are all performing important parts of a plan simultaneously and you wanted to have the 3rd person narrative switch between the different people as the plan goes off. Cheesy example: Steven pulled back on the throttle as his plane began to plummet, the engines no longer responding to his commands. "John the virus is infecting the main engines, I'm loosing power in all systems!" Pressing forward in his chair John began scanning the system for anomalies. It had only been five minutes since the Russian signal corrupted their systems and already it had taken out most of the fleets capabilities. "Steven hold on in there we almost have it resolved, Sarah have you isolated the signal yet?" "Almost there, just a few more metres until I reach the antennae!" shouted Sarah, her voice barely heard over the harsh blizzard engulfing the relay station. She grabbed the last ice encrusted rung of the ladder and pulled herself up onto the towers roof. "John, we have a problem!" Now in this terrible example we have three different perspectives in quick succession. Although it somewhat works I have noticed that it does cause confusion if used extensively as the reader ends up having trouble identifying each persons perspective unless you mention their name explicitly. Does anyone have a good way of handling something like this or is it better to just have a single main character and relegate the others to being in their perspective rather than having their own?
