@what, Thank you for the reply. I guess yours and Standback's ideas are the most engaging.

comment Good idea to describe the heist place before the heist begins?
Yes. Yes that clicks with me too. After I posted the question, I kind of thought that maybe if I can show a few important hurdles and I can then proceed with the action. But I guess that's the problem with me, various ideas and not a single gram of confidence to choose which one to work on, which one will be apt. But thank you Standback. It seems I accept all your answers by default. I wish I could accept this answer too. Glad to have you guys around. It's so much help.

comment Good idea to describe the heist place before the heist begins?
@Joe, Bingo! I was actually planning to walk on a similar path. Show a few elements of the planning in a prior scene, and then fill in the gaps as the heist takes place. One of the major challenges I have is the fact that the novel is in first person narrative. There would have been so many liberties if it was in third person. But I think I'll pull it off. If you guys know any caper scenes written in First person, please let me know. That'll be a tonne of help.

"while Hannah, who was not there, picked up nothing." Hahaha! Extra points for the example of beauty. I totally get what you meant. I practically believed it all this while. Never applied it though; I thought if it is not commonly done, its should not be done. Thanks for standing up and assuring me that I was not the only one.

comment Is it good style in fiction to write sentences as a flow of (disjointed) thoughts?
@JohnSmithers, thanks for the title change. I really need to learn how to frame my questions. :|

@Neil, I never asked how this sentence was. I just asked whether it is a good practice to write in this style or not. But it's my bad. I should not have used that tag.

Thanks Lauren. This is what most of the youth in my country like. Hence the writing style. :)
