Prologues are like Traffic Cones

Episode Summary

You might love your prologue, but it’s a traffic cone. It tells the reader to wait, take notice of something that is NOT the story before the story begins. In this episode we debate whether this means the writer doesn’t trust the reader or whether the writer needed the prologue to keep himself/herself on track and in the end, it should be chunked before the book is published.
