I’ve decided to tackle a monster of a project. I’m planning to write 100 original monologues that I’ll perform and shoot on camera. The purpose of this project is to help me improve my skills as an actress. By going behind the scenes and being in charge of writing the script, this project will also challenge me to tap into creating different characters, stories, situations, and so on and so forth.
If any of the monologues sound similar to something you’ve seen before, that is simply a coincidence. I’m approaching each piece without thinking about other monologue work that’s out there. I also plan to post the script for each monologue so that any students out there can feel free to use it for a class – just make sure you credit the author Maggie Coyle.
So here we go! I’m off to start writing up a storm and getting my pieces memorized and filmed as quickly as I can.
