I was gone for one day. ONE DAY! And now I realize how much that actually is in the blog world. I have to catch up on both commenting and reading for several blog posts. You guys really out-did yourselves. I’m scared to see what my inbox will look like when I get back from a week of camp. Oh, well. On top of catching up on blog posts, I have to enter at least one more of Kirsten’s contests. I promised myself.
To prologue or not to prologue; that is the question. Prologues can add a lot to a story, but they aren’t always necessary. I’m wondering if I should add a prologue to my book. It wouldn’t add much back story (which is what a prologue is normally for), but it would add a lot of foreshadowing. Foreshadowing is a key element in my story. My story also starts a bit abruptly. I think a prologue would help that problem. So what do you think? Should I add a prologue? Or is a prologue unnecessary?
I have heard from various bloggers about a “Camp NaNoWriMo”. I’m pretty sure you write a novel in a month in August. I think. If I’m right, YIPEE! If I’m wrong, what is Camp NaNoWriMo? For the sake of this blog post, let’s assume that during August I’m to write a novel. I think I’ll write a cheesy fairytale romance novel with an almost sad ending. Almost. So it’s a happy ending. Yay! I think I’ve mentioned this one before, and I already have a cover for it!
I wish you good luck on your novel in August!
