Dear 100 Hour Board,

What is the average length of a soliloquy (especially when trying to emulate Shakespeare)?
-totally in the dark when it comes to imitating geniuses

A: Dear in the dark,

Average length: .375 miles
Of course, that is on a single line (none of this text-wrapping stuff) in Times New Roman 12 pt. font. It's a little bigger if you use Tahoma.

-imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, but I think you should find someone else to imitate

(Shakespearean soliloquies are commonly 30-40 lines long)
