Prologue

Prologue

A Chapter by Sunny

I hate football more than anything else on this God forsaken Earth. I hate it more than my hate for country music, ferrets, and the color orange combined. Nothing about the sport intrigues me.

But, my dad loves football. He's one of those guys that has season tickets, knows practically every teams stats, and has all the satellite football channels. My dad loves football. Because of this love every boy in my family has had to play the god awful game. From my oldest brother, Dallas, all the way down to little Jordan, it's a known fact in our small town that Whitman boys play football. Even if we suck at it! I guess dear old dad knew sooner or later one of his kids would be good at his first and true love and well, that kid is me.

I know, it's hilarious. I'm good at a game I hate. I'm the best running back my high school has ever seen and have scored more touchdowns in a single game than any of my brothers have in their whole lives! But, as I said I hate¾ no, I loathe the game of football. And I feel pretty damn bad that my twin brother, Scott, loves the game but, couldn't catch a football to save his life. He keeps trying, though. And well, I keep on playing cause dad loves football and football is my ticket out of here.

Wow. Poor Scott. I guess he got the bad set of genes in the family. This was really really good. I loved reading it! I could feel his emotion of wanting to get out and his hate for football. You captured it all in just a short Prologue! Great job. I can't wait to read more! I'm so excited.

I love it.
The start and finish are really well written, you start off knowing what the peice is going to say, and the end is an explanation.
very good.

Hmm. I'm interested!

I like the idea of a small town boy hating foot ball. Should be interesting to see where it goes!

Good voice and character development in such a short piece. I think that this could be a bit more eye catching, and could reach further into his life or provide some details of something, but overall, a good start. :)

Interesting. I like the plot build up. Interested to see what happens.

You capture emotions well. The writing style was a bit immature and the piece is a bit repetitive. If you could expand upon the emotion in different ways, this piece would be excellent. Why does the protagonist hate football so much? Is he just bored of it? Is he sick of the pretenses set for him? The conflict is intriguing. I hope you continue this.
