Is it okay to have just two chapters of split time switchover alternating with the present (chapters)?. I.e. the second and fourth chapters portray the story of the protagonist's ancestors, which has some relevance with some of the internal and social conflicts of the protagonist. My question are:
- Is it okay to have a split time switchover for just two chapters at the beginning?
- Though relevant, would it dilute the attention of the reader from the main story? Though, from my point of view it feels fine
- The split time switchover tells the story of the protagonist's grandfather and great grandfather and their struggles in building a business in a new country. I sometimes feel I'm trying to push too much information in just two chapters. It's just a gut feeling.
