Recently I wished to add a prologue/introduction to my story. It has a pretty simple message: "I am the narrator and I'll tell the following story". Given my type of narrator I believe it to be necessary, so I gave it a shot. I wrote it and liked the final result, the problem is that I feel it might be too long. It spans 4 pages, not including a middle part I still have to write. It introduces the narrator quite well, but many non-story pages right at the beggining... Before I scrape it for a shorter version, I would like to ask: Can a prologue this size works or should I definetely redo it?
