For the Love of Chaz

The following are two character monologues that came out of a character study I did after seeing a woman at a dance event. Beth confronts her best friend, Angie. I really don’t know why you can’t be more supportive, Angie.  I don’t know why you can’t see things from my point of view.  You have known me my whole life.  My whole life!  I was a mess before Chaz came around and you know it.  I had no will power, low self-esteem, and I weighed over 300 lbs.  Now I work out, feel a lot better about myself, and I’ve lost 27 lbs already.  Do you know why?  Because of Chaz.  He keeps me in check.  He is the most…

2 Karins on a Bench

This story will be made into a short film.  I won’t look very much like this story since film is a visual medium.  The goal of the film is to experiment with film editing, especially split screens.  I’ll post the film when I’m done with it. -Karin I’m rummaging around in my purse looking for my cell phone when I feel the presence of someone else. Someone is sitting beside me. I turn, and see myself. “Are you going to get that?” myself asked looking at my ringing cell phone. What do you call someone who is you but who is not you? If she was you and you were you you’d call her by your own name since you’re…
