A Chapter by Chelsea

Prologue: The Man I Am

A magazine lies upon the sidewalk. I pick up its crumpled self and flip it open to the first page. The page is of a family.


They are sitting upon a couch, glued to the television. The Mom and Dad are cuddled into a knot; their hands are entwined in a loving embrace. Their children, with mirrored faces of the parents, are sitting in perfect harmony.


My hand grips the paper, crumpling this sweet picture. Just like my perfect family was.

A straightforward and simple start that sets the mind racing.
So many possible routes you could take this, you have a very different way of approaching it than I would and don't get caught up in the pointless details and heaps of description, you keep it bare and stripped back and catch the reader so easily.

I'll admit it did get me interested even though I wasn't a big fan of the voice.

Very interesting choice for a prologue. I am interested in reading more. Sometime prologues bore me.

You have a very abrupt, matter-of-fact style that works to grab the readers attention. This is a nice opening, getting the reader's interest immediately and preparing them to settle in for more.
