What do you all think? I mean, of course, if you query her, follow her rules. But is this a good general rule? Her point is that a prologue usually only makes sense when you read the rest of the book, and so isn't necessarily a good "opening" if you're only supposed to send 5 pages or 10 pages. I tend to agree, but what do you all think would work?
Those of you who write prologues, how do you handle this?
Also, how do you handle it in the synopsis? Do you have the events of the prologue listed as the prologue in the synopsis? Or??
And if you write prologues, do you ever feel totally besieged by negativity from others? Everyone keeps saying, "Prologues=no!"
