    Monologue Tips?

    One of my best friends from college recently moved to my city and has been involved in multiple plays. Since she got here, she's auditioned for three plays and landed the lead role in all three. She's been amazingly helpful as I work on my novel, so when she recently asked me to write a monologue for her as my main character it sounded fantastic. She has more auditions coming up in the spring and just asked for "something sad."

    I'm not the kind of novelist that's comfortable with big chunks of uninterrupted speech. I've taken a few stabs at writing a monologue (like this), but am having a little trouble. Does anyone have any tips about what makes a really great monologue? What should I keep in mind? Do you have any suggestions for one I could read and learn from?
