For the story I'm pretending to write this month, I've decided to do a prologue. Not sure why, other than just to practice doing one in case I might need to later.
Well, it seems to rely on a lot of description. In the first few pages, there are no characters, just an event that sets up and creates the catalyst for the entire story. It's kind of weird, kind of familiar, but I've had to write some paragraphs over and over again because I'd get to the middle of a sentence and get stuck. Then I'd realize that I began it wrong and start a different way.
I'd visualize something and then write a completely different description. Don't know why that happens, but it did. Frustrating is a understatement here.
