The Wives (Many) of Fela Anikulapo Kuti

So the Fela’s Wives Stageplay currently entitled “the Wives (Many) of Fela Anikulapo Kuti” is coming along nicely. I am about 30 minutes into it. Written a beginning to end of Act One which currently comes in at around 20 pages (20 pages with my writing style and with some of the sequences written so far clock in at about 30 minutes I reckon) and I have now moved onto Act Two. Decided to move on to Act Two rather than finish Act One as it was starting to feel a little forced, so with my new God Particle philosophy in mind I moved on.

God Particle. In a long deep underground tunnel in Switzerland mad (entirely subjective and in no way meant as a strictly legal definition) scientists are firing atoms at other atoms. At the moment of collision new and exciting discoveries can be witness, measured and used for the enhancement of Man. I might be paraphrasing here slightly. This might explain it differently or this

This is what I am doing (in my much more humble way and perhaps not for the benefit of the whole of Mankind) by moving onto Act Two. Once finished I can throw my atomic acts together and see what new mysteries are created/capturing and then go back and start adjusting life as I knew it before this moment of collision. I believe more experienced writers call that looking back and reflecting on “life as I knew it before this moment of collision” rewriting.

Seeing scenes/moments/acts as God Particle experiments is much more sexy, exciting, deluding no??
