I would have to say that there are some connections between the monologue, as defined, and the mono-blog that I publish here on a fairly regular basis. Here it is January 2 of 2007 and I sit pondering the act of writing into this blue box when it is most definitely a mono-blog and NOT a discourse. There are so many other possiblilities for writing where one might receive some sort of benefit or acknowledgment or feedback. I am looking at writing in a forum where my words will find a context and have meaning.
