Prologues and other links

Chris and Jana submitted some work that included a prologue. I jumped on them a bit. (Of course you can be sure that my next submission will include a prologue.) But I did some research and found the following link which talks about prologues.

This article describes four reasons for a prologue which are: "future protagonist", "past protagonist", different POV, and background.

I also found the folowing which I found interesting:

An agents home page:

A blog from a F&SF editor:

A list of the top ten writing and publishing blogs:

And two writers home pages:

So quit writing and waste time on the internet. What kind of writer are you?
