Blocking

Not the writer's block sort, the actions that go with the dialogue. I had a theatre class or two, and we learned that if you just have talking heads, you have a really weak acting job. The same with writing, I decided, and went back through all the conversations in ectogenesis and added blocking.

The result was astonishingly good. I evidently have a bit of a talent for comic timing.

Now I'm going back through the lunch scene just here and adding in Beatrice's lunch, so she's not just sitting there doing nothing while Ben runs off at the mouth about everything and anything just because he's so sodding drunk he can't tell his arse from a canary.
