I usually find that if I like the prologue of a story, I'll want to read it- that's why I'm working on an interesting prologue for mine. Only thing is, I've written it and it's only about 210 words. I have seen a few one page prologues before, and in a way it might make the reader more interested to read the story because little is given away and the author dangles some interesting bait in front of the reader. What I want to know is, is 210 words really enough to grab you? I suppose in a bookshop it would look less intimidating if you only need to read a little to get a flavour for the book... but what think you? Mine starts out centred around the MC, you don't know her name or what she looks like, it's a weird sort of static bubble where she's holding a dead body and there's no indication of whose it is- a battle continues around her but there's little indication who's fighting who. One important thing we learn about is that the person who died meant something to her, and that she is supposed to be a warrior, although she feels that she can't cope with it. (It's actually a scene that will be returned to much later in the story) =(^__^)=; How long do you usually make your prologue, if indeed you decide to include one at all?
