The Monologue

Sometimes when I write this blog I think I am talking to myself. it is my monologue — to put it in stage terms. Why do we write blogs?
Some are actually fascinating and informative while others are ramblings. I stopped doing diaries years ago because I was tired of
something only I would read. And found it bored me. Probably it would bore others even more. But now I am writing a blog.

I have no real audience. Very few people read what I say. So am I doing a monologue? do I need a monologue? I feel compelled to write every few days, although in the theatre monologues should be few and pointed towards the direction of the narrative. In life we so often stray from the narrative, not seeing an end in sight although every human knows there will be an end.

I actually have to write an opinion for the International Center of
Women Playwrights next month — something meaningful perchance? Something towards the narrative that women have as much interesting to say dramatically as men?

About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
