I'm writing a story. Should I write the first chapter so that it makes sense without the prologue, or do I need to read the prologue to understand the first chapter? Thanks in advance!

depending on how your first chapter will turn out (and I think its great that youre writing a story, i lovve to write stories too!), if you make your 1st chapter clear then you might not need it (also flashbacks might work when showing parts of the background story), but a prolouge could help depending on how clear you are in your chapter/prolouge.
