Part of the series: Random Elements of Storytelling

lostnbronx leads us on an investigation of the fundamentals of story telling.

Lostnbronx goes over the narrative technique of using one main character to tell a story, as opposed to using multiple characters. What advantage, if any, does so-called "head-hopping" have, over focusing on a single character at a time? Why is it sometimes better to do the opposite? And how can these different construction elements impact the story as a whole?
