Monologues (pt 1)

I've been giving a lot of thought to monologues lately, so expect a few more musings and lists such as these. As ever, I'd love to hear your views, disagreements, questions.

Types of monologue:
  • Outside the scene (direct to audience by a narrator or characters not in the scene)
  • Inside the scene (where characters in the scene take focus and speak for longer than normal (usually uninterrupted))
  • Solo Scene where the whole scene is a monologue.

  1. There seems to be 2 'Inside the scene' styles of narration.
    A character can give a speech to other people in the scene, this happens a lot in court room dramas.
    The other is the Aside, or breaking out of the normal action and giving a monologue of the characters thoughts.
