Right, I am about to start writing what I am hoping to be my first novel. it is about the Conflict Diamond Trade that is going on in South Africa. my question is about the prologue though. is it alright to make the prologue a diary entry??? i think it would be better this way as the information givrn is important to the plot but the way I want to write it, I would class it as info-dump if I don't. So another question. If I shouldn't write it as a diary entry how should I write it? If I'm not making any sence, please tell me!
