"You're not paying me enough attention."
"Character A is getting too much viewpoint."
"But you're in most of the scenes and are playing a crucial role in moving the plot forward."
"That's my point."
"I've got more to lose than Character A and I'm a lot more interesting . . .and if I say so myself, a lot more attractive."
"So, what is it you want?"
"I should be the main character."
"What if you share?"
"That might work."
Has this happened to you?
