Project Description I haven’t worked that much on DOLL in the last week since I am wrapping up another writing project and also started re-vamping my website. Since I got the idea for the novella, I imagined the story would be told in three acts (Act 1 – Vivian; Act II – Violet; Act III – Daisy) but I don’t think that fits anymore. Mutability of memory is a big theme: how can that be reflected in the structure?
DOLL is about the relationship between scientist, Dr. Marguerite Thompson, and her creation,Vivian who was once Violet who was once Tracy. Dr. Thompson promises Tracy, a young woman imprisoned for a crime in her teens, a fresh start with money and a clean record in exchange for participating in a corporate experiment on memory. Eager to erase her painful past,Tracy accepts. Through the procedures, she becomes Violet and endures long treatments which have side effects the corporation exploits. Dr. Thompson is tasked to send Violet out on a dangerous mission, and soon after her control over Violet unravels. Violet escapes and becomes Vivian, a survivor longing for a lost love while Dr. Thompson’s life becomes upended in the search for her.
