Choosing the Main Character

I made quite a few changes to the world history of my novel and added some deeper characterization. These changes have improved the story quite a bit. Having the history more defined has helped me get a better feel for the story.

Unfortunately, I have come to the conclusion that the novel is no longer my current main character's story to tell. I've been fighting with that for a week now because that character has been the center of the story for a long time. I wasn't planning on reusing much of the original writing so I'm not too upset at having to write additional chapters. However, I was on a roll with the scene writing and now I need to re-think the outline.
