    So I get this question for English Lang saying I should write a 250-word monologue from the perspective of a model in a Vogue photograph (Alex Turner). My English teacher further instructs us to make so it's the internal voice of the model that's speaking in the monologue - avoiding any sort of dialogue, which I interpreted as him implicitly telling us to create a soliloquy.

    Now, I'm in the midst of getting the thing done, but I really need to make certain things obvious, such as the model flicking their hair or smirking, but I'm not exactly sure how I could do that when the narrator is the internal voice ("I'm going to be smiling now" sounds a bit odd).

    TL;DR: My question is, do I, and if so, how do I add objective narration in a soliloquy? Are there any alternatives? It would be highly helpful but at the same time, I'm afraid it would appear misplaced. Thank you!
