Prologues – with hindsight

A fascinating post about prologues, from Jessica Norrie. Particularly as there is one in my novel! Apparently some folks don’t like them. I recommend reading this thoughtful article to discover the do’s and don’ts of prologues.

  1. This is a great post by Jessica Norrie. I like what she says: that a prologue explain important information that doesn’t necessarily follow the timeline of the rest of your book (hence It is not oart of the story). And that one could even found prologues whose events occur midway or late in the stories they introduce.
    Interesting that she introduces the term “epilogue” as well, explaining how it links to the prologue. One at the beginning, the latter at the end. Thank you for sharing, dear Marje… All the best to you! 🙂
