In one chapter I have written of my fiction book, I used the ✻ symbol to divide text. Because, in the chapter, I have to differentiate past vs present (in the specific chapter it switches from flashbacks to present and back about 4 times).
However, in my other chapters, I will not be using this symbol, as flashbacks do not recur in my story very often.
Will readers think it is weird that I use ✻ around 4-5 times in one chapter, and then I don't use it again/very often later in my book?
I want to maintain consistency, but most of the time, I can create a new paragraph or chapter instead of using ✻ as a text divider - but in one chapter I feel that is needed that I use ✻ to clarify when it switches from past or present.
What would be the recommended strategy to go about doing this?
Remember: In my other chapters, I do not switch off from past to present, it is unique to one chapter only.
