Memory Blood 2 is now at about 12k words and the ideas for each story have been solidified. At the moment, there are 5 stories just like there were in the original. They all have a unique flavor to them as well, but I’m approaching the ongoing plot a little differently this time around. I don’t want to give away anything about the plot so there’s not much that I can say other than confirming that it’ll be a little bit different (which is probably a useless thing to confirm to begin with).
The tone this time around is a little more prevalent and can be seen throughout all of the stories. In the first book, Mara and Dustin’s relationship was at the center and so all the stories were very focused on those two characters. This time around, the situation isn’t focused on a relationship between two people. Even though I’ve given away nothing I feel like I shouldn’t say much more so that concludes this week’s Writing Update. In the future I might give away some sort of tangible detail about the new book so I’ll stop talking for now.
