Prologue or Chapter One?

Today, I broke a promise I’d made to myself: I started editing the first few pages of my novel. Yes, the one I’m currently writing for SeptNoWriMo. I couldn’t help it!… I wanted to run it through the Hemingway App and see how it fared. Apparently, I use a lot of adverbs (yes, pun intended), but my… Continue reading Prologue or Chapter One?
