I have most of the acting techniques written down in a binder at home. All I need to do is make a pretty good PowerPoint and have a good presentation about all these techniques and lots of other things about acting. I have most of the monologue memorized, I'd write it down but it's supposed to be a surprise. Along with the monologue I have to make up my character. Although I didn't write the monologue, it didn't include any info about who I am. When it comes to monologues like that, you have to create him/her. Why? So you understand more of what you're talking about and why you're talking about it. Also if you do create him/her, you would feel more like the character. That's also one of the things you have to do in acting, feel like your character, relate to him/her.
