I am working on a piece of fiction and am having some difficulty locking down which perspective/s to utilize. The main issue at hand is that I have 4 characters that will play "lead" roles and different intervals once they are introduced eventually becoming part of a team.
I am far from a professional when it comes to writing and am having trouble maintaining consistent perspective when writing. There are points where the character is speaking and narrating and other points where I flip to a 3rd person story.
What I am looking for is examples of first or third person perspective writing that tell a story from multiple character perspectives by chapter (limited 3rd person is the direction I am leaning).
The concern I have with a first person, or limited third person perspective, even thought I would prefer to tell the story from a non-omniscient view, is I am introducing a new universe/world etc and I want to demonstrate involvement in a broader social/political conflict that is brewing and I am not sure how to do this without utilizing an obvious mechanism or device that I feel can detract from storytelling. Any suggestions for balancing the two?
Thanks for the examples and advice.
