Many dramatic monologues are written from the point of view of an imagined character. This allows you to tailor the piece to your audience without worrying about keeping to certain facts. Sankey then goes on to say that a monologue should be ‘about things that have happened’ instead of ‘things that you believe may happen.’ I agree with this point as it is much more interesting to read about what has already happened to a character than what might happen in the future as this is more realistic. In a monologue about what is going to happen in a characters life it is more like speculation and may not be as interesting to the audience. -------------------------------------------- [ 1 ].
