When I started this blog, I wasn’t sure how people would react to it- strangers reading my work? How…strange.
But recently a few things have popped up regarding a monologue I posted two years ago.
She Said was posted on September 1, 2014.
The inspiration for it simply came from just getting in the mindset of someone who had just had their heart handed to them. And what they would be feeling.
I want to say sometime last year, I got a message from a woman asking me for some background info about “She” because she had used my monologue for an audition into an acting school of some sorts. I tried to get some information out of her, because I wanted to know more about what the situation was before providing original work to a stranger. But unfortunately she never responded.
Needless to say within the last few days, I received a new message from a guy by the name Omar Salgado about this same monologue. He said he was inspired to create a vimeo video based off of it. And I thought it was really cool and wanted to share it.
This led to him linking a dramatic reading of my monologue. One he used as the audio for his piece above- read by a woman by the name, Eva Augustina Sinotte. I didn’t even know this existed on YouTube! I wonder if she was the woman who contacted me. Her emotion is on point!
Seeing people respond to my work, in their own creative ways is really something cool and surreal. I hear my words and see them mirror the story I created and it is truly a super weird feeling. Don’t get me wrong I am flattered, but it’s crazy that these things were being made, and I had no clue! I’m thankful that Omar reached out to me and gave me credit. I got to see that people can be inspired by something I’ve written. I can only hope this is the first of many inspirations to come.
The internet man, what a trip!
The journey does continue…On September 2, 2014-a day later, I posted He Said, She Said.
This time you get to see the conversation between both She and He.
