Does one-of-a-kind always = Monoprint?

Can I make drawings and call them monoprints?  What if I drew it all backwards, scanned it, reversed it in photoshop, and then used a laser-printer to make ONLY one "print"?

So, can a laser printer print out of the missouri primary results be considered a monoprint as well?

How do ghost prints fit into this monoprinting idea? is it a biprint?

NO NO NO. a print off a computer is NOT a monoprint (and everyone knows it).

The way I understand it, a print can only be a monoprint if the template used is unstable enough that it cannot be printed in the exact same way twice.

However, that definition begs the question of a one-of-a-kind print that was made from a stable template. If one printed a single piece from a woodcut and then heavily modified that woodcut, would the print from the earlier version of the woodcut count as a monoprint?
