Daily Deviation

Given 2014-04-05
Circlebound - Blessed Be The Queen - prologue by Sleyf is a perfect example of a well written prologue. It's intriguing, draws the reader in but leaves them asking questions. ( Suggested by mirz-alt and Featured by GrimFace242 )

It really hooks you in and leaves you wanting for more! I think it's the shift in the narrative that does the trick, but the whole premise is interesting anyway (oh my, the suspense is killing me...). Who is this lady? Why does she have to tolerate this fate? It's a healthy amount of questions for now and if it was a book, I'll certainly turn the page to read what's next! Well done! :thumbsup:

well I have to say that I never faved any literature yet, simply because I never really had a passion for texts. Nor am I someone who knows much about writing skills, but I simply had to because this was a real pleasure to read. Very nice thoughts and a wonderful choice of words. I love it! Thanks for sharing and congrats on the well deserved DD! :heart:

Aww thanks!  I'm glad that mine could be one of the first lit pieces you faved!  I think also it doesn't matter if you don't know much about the technicalities of writing - I don't - but being able to still enjoy it is a good thing - after all a lot of readers aren't professionals, and neither are a lot of writers, but being able to share and enjoy is a good thing
Thanks for commenting and faving!

Awesome job! And you were saying to me you didn't think yourself a good writer. Well, Missy, I think this is pretty darn good, and well deserved the DD. :D :D :D :D :D (That's right, it gets five happy faces out of five) ;)
