A monolgue is is either a long speech by one person, a dramatic work for one performer or a scene within a longer piece where just one person speaks. I'm not sure if that means anyone who talks to themselves is a monologist whose monological habits cause them to monogolize from time to time, but I expect it's something like that.

I tried chatting to this chap, but that turned into a monologue.

Anyway, moving swiftly on ... If you've written a monologue, or fancy giving it a go, you might like to enter it in this competition.


  1. Thanks for the link, Patsy. Looks like you've got your head up that chap's armpit. Can you tell us where it is?

  2. I tried writing one! Not sure how successful it was, I'll check out the link, thanks, Patsy.

  3. My writer buddies, when we'd go play hoops, we'd call playing Juan y Juan, monologue. You know, mono y mono.

  4. Who's your big wooden friend, Patsy? I'm intrigued.

    1. He's known as 'The Guard' and was created by John Merrill, Frances.

  5. I think I'd rather be called a monologist than 'that batty woman who's always talking to herself'.
    Thanks for the link, Patsy. I've got a story written in first person that I might be able to adapt for this.


Thanks so much for commenting!
