Yep. I started a new book this week. So far I'm 4K in, and not feeling TOO bad about it. But I wrote a prologue. And I LOATHE and DETEST prologues. I just felt like this book needed one. It's a little different to anything else I've written (or at least I think it is).
It's not a mystery, exactly, but there is an element of mystery to it, and I'm going to have to be careful about how I plant the little pieces of information I need to plant along the way.
At the moment I'm still settling into my main character's voice and trying to work out where I'm going with the story. There are two main elements to it, and I'm not sure how long I should stick with one before introducing the other.
But as I write, I'm sure these things will become clear to me. If they don't, I'm in trouble! I don't have a title for this one yet, so I'm just going to call it Lana for now, or #juvvielesbian...
Have you started a new project recently? How is it going?
Who knows, maybe the prologue will turn out to be good for the book. If it works, why not have one?ReplyDelete
Have fun getting into the book. It's the best part of a new project (for me anyway:).
