Tutorial: what is a prologue and how do I write it?

To illustrate the prologue a little, one should note the following: If one already knows in which direction the story is developing, it is easier to plan the introduction. A nice example of this is always the temporal context: If the story takes place in the present, you can set to the past in the prologue, or vice versa.

It's just as possible to write about a female main character in a fanfiction or book. A prologue can also be written from different perspectives, such as that of a boy who will approach the girl in the near future (keyword "foreshadowing").

You can also decide whether to name the characters or to keep their identities secret. With too many characters this could be counterproductive, because then nobody knows who acted in the prologue. Was it the hero or just a supporting character? With a few characters, however, this train makes something, because then it would arouse the interest of the reader.

An interesting prologue can be exciting to captivate the reader or to accompany him into a new world. For example, a prologue can be designed like this: You throw the reader in the middle of the story (or in the middle of a conflict). If you immerse a reader directly in the action, it can have a positive effect on them. He is interested, wants to know the reason for the conflict, who is involved and what relationships the characters have to one another. That would also be a solution for an alternative universe (AU), for example.

An example:

I was standing on a steep cliff and could not see down. The stones under my feet could loosen at any time and fall into the depths. But I looked up - up into the night sky, in which the northern lights moved like veils. There was something mystical and beautiful about them. They were so much more beautiful than anything I'd seen in this depraved world before.

To keep the interest, try to choose a not too verbose prologue. Be brief, but don't leave out too much that might be important to the plot. You need the right balance and not give too much away at once. At best, a prologue should not be longer than two pages. You yourself are the author and know about the processes. The reader shouldn't - but his curiosity should be aroused.

Cliffhangers (open, abrupt ends) can be used at the end of a prologue. You keep readers interested so they would like to continue the story.
