There already are threads about this I think, but something I'm curious about is this. Have you written a story where you started out with one character as the protagonist, but you quickly realized others were more interesting in both depth and personality? Register to remove this ad Because, I caused this to myself bizarrely. I have a main character who is sort of a blank slate right now, whose next to characters that represent supernatural deities and have complex backgrounds. The first is important because originally, I hoped to show the story through the eyes of a non-superhuman person to... show the world I guess. But if others are more interesting than the protagonist, will the reader be bored by the main character automatically? Or is this okay if done well? I'm guessing with the latter, the idea is for the reader to put themselves in the character's place more?
