Shadow of Cygnus did a dramatic reading of my story Lost, and it's neat as hell. · 6:25am Aug 25th, 2016

Seriously though, this shit is great. Dude is a fantabulous reader and gives a great performance. If you liked Lost, go check out Shadow of Cygnus' reading.

This was exactly what I was looking for! Thank you so much! I can see what you mean and after writing out a brief plan of how the next 30 or so chapters were going to go then looking at this I can see that this prologue I have written is not needed.

This shouldn't be in the prologue at all, because this is just you telling-not-showing the first chapter or two of the story. It would make sense if this were a sequel story and the prologue was meant to catch the reader up on what happened in the earlier stories, but in a first story this just seems massively lazy.

Okay, I will admit to being lazy with this. I understand what you mean by telling-not-showing here and I think that I will keep the prologue but I won't end up using it in the actual story. Thanks for really explaining this for me. (Sorry but the thread was locked and I couldn't reply in the normal way. Again, thanks for the help!)
