Okey, I've written my prologue over 5 times over and I can't get it "right" Three of those times have been a change in the prologue story. The two other have been remade partly due to sucky english. (Not saying I'm perfect now) I want to give the raw realism and dark world of my book in the prologue, but the things I've been struggling with is; Do you want to leave a mystery in the prologue? Or do you want to go all in and reveal a minor antagonist? Now if I were to have the mystery the PoV would be the girl to be burned. With us reading the horrible things that has and happens to her, till her demise. --The minus of this would be that we would not see one bit of another character that dies the same night as her, by who or why. Then there is a PoV of this mysterious character that witnesses the burning and torture of the girl on a stage for all to see. Then he councils with the king and a few councilors-> then he rides out to inspect a weird plague among the animals-> then he heads to kill the character that we would not get to see in the girl's PoV. --The minus in this is that we get to know the "idendtity" of a smaller antagonist and that everything would be laid flat out on the table, (in a way) The girl that is to be burned does have a background story that will partly be given in her prologue, if I am to choose her. (She knew one of the other PoV's of my book) I'm very tired, I do not know if this is the right place to post. I might even forget something important, but then I'll update later. I will not post an excerpt, just maybe if you PM. I could set up a poll, but I'd rather not. It is much better with a detailed answer and a tip or two than just pressing a button.
