Hi everyone. My first actual thread, exciting eh!
Anyway, I have my idea ready to go and start writing. However, I feel the need to write a prologue to explain to the reader about the world and its past. This feels like I'm cheating a bit and I don't have confidence in my own writing. Surely a good writer can explain about the world and past within the story?
Some good authors use prologues though, so they must be useful.
Any thoughts or comments would be greatly appreciated.
