Hi guys, I've been working on an idea on and off for a long time now, it is a fantasy setting and the protagonist is exiled from his people (who are a renowned warrior race) at a young age. The MC's development is centred around his growth outside of his clan and how he comes to understand that a lot of what he understood to be the truth is in fact false and that, while they are an important part of the armies of the kingdom, his people are actually very elitist, not-very-nice people. Anyway the point of this thread is to ask whether there is a way to successfully jump ahead a few years between major events in a single book. Basically there is a life-changing event in his early teens that leads to him making certain decisions and I want to jump ahead about 3 years to see what has eventuated as a result of that decision and continue the story. Is there a way to do that well in a single book do you think?
