Existing Characters Hello, I am trying to write a sequel to my first novel, but I’m not sure if I should use the same characters and the same supporting ones. If I don’t, will the second version lose originality to the first one, or is it better to have all of the different ones? Another thing, I don’t want the narrator to be the protagonist of the novel. I want him to be the antagonist of it. Will this make it harder for the readers to identify the main character and the “bad” character? I appreciate the suggestions if anyone has any.
