    My final exam for drama is next Thursday and I need to write a monologue on the theme of world war 1. I have decided to write it from the perspective of a female nurse on the frontline in a diary style showing how her views have changed during the war. I have most of it written, but I'm just struggling with a good opening. I want something that shows the examiner from the start that I can achieve an A, but everything I've written sounds way too cheesy or just plain rubbish. I was planning on starting my monologue with her views as she arrives, but I'm not sure if this is hard hitting enough as I can't seem to make anything work. I don't want this bad opening to ruin my entire exam! Does anyone have any suggestions?
