My first draft prologue was a lesson in “How to give away the whole enchilada in one giant info dump”. Basically it was Kalynn talking about her life and the events surrounding the first tour. It was all narrative—not a speck of dialogue or real-time action. Also, an early beta reader pointed out that this one made Kalynn sound a bit whiny. Needless to say, it didn’t last, but it does contain a few nuggets about Kalynn’s world, and it also answers the question “What happened to Jett Armstrong?”.
